creating comfort

on September 25, 2012

Her home is topsy turvy. 
Lots of kids, lots of grown-ups, no routines and regularity. 
School has lots of kids and lots of grown ups
but here there are comforting routines and regularity. 
Here there is a home she can organize, tame, and call her own.

  1. Wow. So few words with such powerful meaning–creating comfort.

    I love this… how many little ones feel your words… how insightful of you!

    Few words – full of meaning. I like how you repeat “lots of kids, lots of grown-ups” and on the picture she is by herself playing with a house with lots of characters.

    I love the words,…but oh, those eyes! That pic looking through the little window at her eyes is so gorgeous!

  5. She feels this comfort and you see it. I wish we had time in the busy days of our older students to provide this kind of comfort. Maybe I just need to look harder – as you always do – to find it.

  6. I love that there is such a place to help show her that she has control and is safe. Well shown, Amelia. Beautiful thought.
