To start the school holidays we headed this morning to the Dunedin Botanical Gardens, it was gray and chilly but the kids never seem to mind. We fed ducks, scooted the walkways, and played in the trees. It’s such a beautiful spot, the sort of place that just makes you slow down in case you miss something. It always amazes me no matter how cold things seem to be, and how bare the trees are, there are still at least a few plants pushing cheery little flowers through.
Despite my promise not to sew, I made a small gift today for our friend and neighbour who has had a miscarriage at 12 weeks. It makes me so sad to think of how she must be feeling, I’ve been feeling tearful ever since I found out. It seems unfair at times, how easy it can be for one person to become pregnant while it can be so difficult for another. She is feeling sad, but strong. A heart for her.
