Children at Play

Looking out of the window I can see most of the children playing in the sandpit. There are lots of laughter and quite a few demands to having things done in a specific way. And surprisingly there is peace between the different ages (and genders).

Often when people visit the Children’s Home one of their first reactions are “shame the poor children”. Yes, there is an aspect of sadness because they should be safely at home with their own parents. My usual response is that these children are just like any child and today this is proven in their play.

I wish you could see them rolling sand into balls and placing them neatly next to each other (I’m not sure why …. Maybe for a sand-ball fight?) Whatever for, today is a day of sunshine and joy at Bethany House.

I might just go outside and join in; and they will be welcoming because our children are always open hearted and ready to show us adults a fun time.
