Beautiful Dark

My greatest ever privilege is the chance to see the world through our son’s eyes….

By the time I picked Alfie up from creche the other night, it was already dark. The wind whipped around us and all I could think about was the list of miseries that had crossed my path that day. Gripping my hand as we walked back to the car, he proclaimed, “Beautiful dark Mum!” Three little words that made everything else fall away.

Every day, Alfie’s perspective reminds me to have an unbridled expectation for good. To expect the very best in every moment and everyone. He notices the smallest details and doesn’t just look – he sees. And that’s a very big difference.
