This week at Alula’s school they’ve been focussing on love. Who said anything about her being at a hippy dippy school?
I don’t care what GCSE results she gets if this is what she learns though. Firstly she came home on Monday and said to me: ‘ Mummy why doesn’t granny like you?’
And I said something like ‘errrrrrr’
And she answered, ‘But you need to love each other. We have hearts. We have to love everybody. That’s what they’re for.’
I was totally bowled over by the wisdom spouting from a not yet five year old.
Then yesterday she was asked to write a letter about love. I have posted it here because it’s beautiful and because I think our daughter might just be the most fully enlightened, heart beautiful person I know.
Dear TKA (her class)
I love all my friends.I still love my friends when they are naughty and when they cry.
I love all the teachers. I really love the letters I’m learning in TKA and I get to colour some of the pictures. I love every teacher because I can learn with them and make pictures.
I hope your heart feels so good so you don’t get sick. If the person got sick I would still love him or her. Even if they were not my friend I would still love them because if they get sick it’s very sad and I don’t want them to be sick.
Love from Alula
