Hello Nana, how are you?
I just thought I’d write to say Even though we can’t be together I miss you everyday
My brother’s told me all the things
That you and GranGran do It all sounds so exciting I can’t wait to play with you
Daddy says you’re lots of fun
You already have me spoiled You do so much from far away I’m a very lucky child
Sorry you can’t hold me
As I get so big and strong My brother thinks he’s your favourite But that won’t last for long 😊
Mammy says I’m so cute and cuddly
And I have the most gorgeous smile My eyes sparkle, my cheeks glow And I have my own sense of style
I dream of your hugs Nana
They truly will be great Just hold on a little longer I’m really worth the wait
An illustrated version of this story is available here:
Sally sat inside each day, She rarely left her room. She loved to play computer games, And at night, stare up at the moon. Even when it was sunny, Sally didn't leave the house. She sat up in her bedroom, As quiet as a mouse. One day, Sally's Mam knocked on her bedroom door Telling Sally to “go out and play!". Sally wagged her finger screaming: "Close the door, just go away!" Sally then looked at her finger, She had wagged with all her might. She realised she was angry And it gave her quite a fright. Her finger pointed towards the door Giving her a terribly sad feeling. As she sat there on her bedroom floor She looked up at the ceiling. "I love to stay indoors", she thought. "It's safer than outside". "I can’t know what I’m missing, If I lock myself in and hide".
Sally wished she was more wild And wasn’t so afraid to go a little crazy But all this hiding from the world Was making her quite lazy She thought, “Right now I am a child, And childhood ends so soon, But wasn’t every astronaut a child Before they set foot on the moon?” Sally stuck her head out of her window, She was feeling awfully furious. The sights! the sounds!! the smells!! They began to make her curious. She looked back at her finger And began to wonder why She had pointed it at her mother And not pointed it to the sky? She then gazed up at the ceiling And imagined it disappear. The sun, the clouds, the sky Everything became so clear. Her finger pointed upward, As high as it could go. “I must get out of this house!" "There’s so much I need to know!”. “I want to breathe fresh air And feel it in my lungs!" "I want to climb the trees And learn about the sun”. “I want to skip, I want to run, I want to get excited. I want to jump in rivers, And swim around delighted!” “Most of all I don’t want to Sit at home and wonder why I didn’t follow my finger When I pointed to the sky! “ * This is a kids story that I found on my laptop half finished. I hope you enjoyed it. Still needs some work. It would go well with some pictures I reckon. I haven't blogged in a long time and I figured life is so much more than a diagnosis so decided to use this page as a platform for other things too.
