Courage; we all have it – it is just the daily demands for level that varies….

Everyones thoughts are with all the people caught up in the war torn areas in our world right now as the courage and fortitude of all concerned is inestimable.

I think comparisons are wrong, as everyone has to walk in their own shoes and every day there are also millions of acts of courage that go largely unseen as they are internal.

One of the little ones is struggling with starting school and so far in her life she has been the capable one with rarely a ripple on the surface. Now at four and a half (the half is very important) she is battling and unhappy. I went to look after them for a few hours last night and she is unable to vocalise just how she is feeling but it is written in her face and in her little arms as they wound tightly around my neck and she couldn’t let go. So we spun magic with many cuddles, giggles, bathtime games, butterfly kisses and stories by torchlight in our makeshift tent.

I watch my daughter gain her balance having made a difficult decision on changing her life plan. We spin our own magic in this house and chocolate, much nattering late at night and Downton Abbey feature highly.

When I think of my friendship circles, the love, support and care we all show each other is the magic that glues us all together.

Be kind and spin magic when you see a need as I’ll bet everyone is courageous in their own way, every single day.
