It’s been lovely being home with my family and catching up. Trips to North Yorkshire and now Palma have been great (I’m sitting in Manchester airport again writing this). Spending time with family is the most valuable thing one can do but it did make me think of all those less fortunate. People who have lost loved ones in the recent floods in Asia and the USA. Other natural disasters or indeed attacks such as the most recent in Barcelona.
As children return to school having spent the summer hopefully having fun, they will value the love and support show by their family, the school and other trusted adults.
Family comes in all shapes and sizes from parents and carers to groups and communities. No matter what your family looks like, value them and always remember that there’s always someone to turn to no matter what.
