Not sure if this little chick survived the predators that abound in our garden but there was little we could do to change the course of nature. Just have to hope survival was the order of the day.
This week, the last week of the school term locally, involves harnessing similar hope for all our young folk as they move on, whether to another stage in the same school or on to new schools and colleges.
We release them, whether they know it or not, with hopes and dreams and, dare I say it, with lots of prayers for not just survival but for healthy growth. May all the preparation to date and all the nurturing serve them well in the next stage of their journey.
Looking forward to end of term festivities.
