My littlest one is having a bit of a rough time dealing with some hard stuff that has happened this year. Our car accident, my injuries resulting from that accident, the sudden deaths of people she knew, mummy having to go away quickly and with no notice - lots of stuff for a little girl who thinks to hard.
My heart pretty much broke when she said that she was thinking in her head she was going to die.
She has been sad, and that has made me sad.
We have lots of support and help and strategies in place for her, and I know in time she will be back to her usual fun and happy self. But in the meantime she needs a few reminders.
Today I put a *secret* note in her pocket for school. She knew it was there, but I made her promise not to look at it till I had left.
It was just a reminder that I was thinking of her, and loving her and a little reminder of the prayers we pray for her and that she herself prays as well.
I think it helped this morning.
