This week my ‘Prose for Thought’ contribution is derived from trying to settle two of my children into a new school, in a new country. Progress is slow and painful. My husband and I feel like we’re going through the early weeks with our first child all over again – such is the extent of our emotions, feeling of helplessness and not having all the answers. All we can do is hope, look at each new day with positivity and try to keep a level of sanity!
As I prepared for today I turned to a beautiful artwork; on the wall of one of the bathroom’s in the house we are staying for a year. It depicts three nude women, towelling themselves dry and is a facsimile of an original pastel by Robert Brackman – ‘Study-Morning Interlude’. It gave me hope and an inner feeling of peace, that they will one day grow to be three, healthy, wonderful, independent women. And indeed, as I post this up, one of my daughters has returned home from school a bundle of positivity – despite being a jumble of nerves and anxiety this morning.
