Dear Mammy and Daddy, Like you say every time I speak with you "where did that week go?"
<< This is just a wee photo from my amazing time at home last Christmas and with everything that is happening in the world right now I am so grateful that we got to spend this time together exploring our lovely home of the Emerald Isle.
This was taken at the beach in Portstewart.... just incase you have forgotten, use are getting on after all 😛
This week has been an absolute rollercoaster, I suppose every week is for most people.
The more it starts to feel like Christmas the more I am having days where I miss home more because Christmas time brings lots of memories with family. So, I am glad I have this wee space now to reflect on my week and write to you......
Dear Mammy and Daddy, So, I have been thinking over the past while how I can't believe it is coming up to 10 years since I moved away from the comforts of the home you created for me for so many years. The memories, the ups, the downs, the ins, the outs, all of them had a big part to play in the person I am today and I am so grateful for you and everything you have helped me achieve so far.
The more time that goes by the more happier I am with my own personal life but a part of me feels guilt, worry and sadness for all the years I don't get to spend with you. So, I don't think anything will ever replace time spent with you in person but I wanted to take you on board the amazing journey I get to go on and create a space where I can bring you more into my life on a weekly basis.
I have tried to write physical letters to you each week but that just doesn't seem to happen, so instead I want to create a digital letter to you where I share my experiences of the week.
Don't worry mammy, this won't replace the phone calls and I promise I will still try to write physical letters but as part of Season 2 of Empathetic Educators, I wanted to write a weekly journal every Friday of the goings on of my process and what better way than to share them with you.
