Roots to Ground Us and Wings to Help Us Fly {Chapter 15}

Our mum started writing a blog when she found out she was sick.

And she continued writing that blog after she found out the illness was gone.

She learnt to

F

…….O

………….R

…………….M

……….A

T

And

Underline in bold

And

Take photos.

We learnt to forget the camera was there and she caught us

LAUGHING

CRYING

GRINNING GAP-TOOTHED SMILES

MUDDY.

We were muddy a lot back then.

And this childhood

Immortalised

A fairy-tale

Printed on pages

For anyone to read.

…………………………………………..

But most importantly, perhaps,

We learnt to LOVE

In safety.

Where mistakes could be made.

Where we could grow.

And fly the nest when we were ready.

It’s a bumpy ride

Learning to fly.

Sometimes the wind is too strong for us.

Sometimes we need shelter from the rain.

Sometimes we need love.

Sometimes we need protection.

………………………………………………………..

We are adults now.

Our childhood immortalised in memories.

We study.

And plan weddings which won’t happen yet.

We move out and come home every three hours for food

And hugs

And wisdom.

And just the smallest amount of teasing.
