Today I finally donned the habit , alas it was not the Flying Nun one wanted but the end results were just the same. Through much side busting laughter I drove around the CBD and made sure I was seen at a few places by many people , not just ones I know personally.
Finally came school pick up, the looks on the faces of the children was one of amusement and curiosity. The first words spoken was not the likes of "Hi mum" or "Where did you get that", but "Are you Catholic?" The second response was, "Are you religious now?" They thought it was cool and laughed and giggled all the way home.
Megan had this to say in her comments:
How cool if all adults acted as child heroes for all kids.We can all be heroes any day of the week/year and it only takes a small amount of time to make the biggest difference as shown today.
Thank God we have plenty of new days to start afresh. Thank God we are allowed to make mistakes and to try again. Thank God we have support networks and heroes that don’t wear their underpants on the outside - people like all those that make comments on our blogs - normal people living normal lives and trying to make the world a better, safer place for all of our kids.
