Hey girls =) The past fortnight has gone so quickly and already it's time for another challenge at Bird Is The Word. This time around the challenge is to use the word 'reach' somewhere on your layout. And here is my take on it...
This was a somewhat emotional layout for me, so much of what I feel right now was poured into it, I have no objectivity in a scrap sense if it turned out ok or not ( I am thinking not). I so wanted to add journalling to this but I just had so much I wanted to say that I didn't know where to start.
This is Mitch, my one and only biological 'baby' ( almost 15) who has had a really rough year at school. With the last few months being particularly tough for him. As adults we have the luxury of being able to distance ourselves from people that are cruel. In high school there is no such luxury. Can you imagine being in a workplace and having to spend eight hours a day around people that called you the most hurtful names, that made you feel worthless, that threatened and inflicted physical violence. And having to do that day after day? It just wouldn't happen would it? But in schools it is different and as I parent I feel so helpless to stop it. My heart breaks for him and what he goes through. Right now I just wish he could just skip that last year and a half and get to the place outside those walls and discover that people generally don't act like animals towards each other. To be free and not have to define himself by the hateful words of others. I wish I had that fast forward button so much!
So anyway...sorry for the doom & gloom. I will be back later in the week with some exciting news to share xox
