It’s amazing how being a parent can change your out look on life. Many years ago if asked to make a wish I’d have said money or fame or something to improve my existence, but being a parent and responsible for the life of another gives you a different perspective.
Tonight we went to see Tom’s secondary school. He’s year 6 now so goes to ‘big school’ next September. He’s excited. He’s nervous. I’m not worried as I know he’ll do just fine.
So I guess my wish is for him. For my son to have the absolute best start in life, the best education, the best opportunities, the best of everything. He’s growing up so quickly. He’ll soon not be my little boy anymore. I wish for him to be a successful young man.
