I have spoken to them countless times about the environment and our part in protecting it.
About good nutrition, although I admit, I am not the best role model at the moment – chocolate, yum! – potato chips, equally yum!
About smoking and drugs and the dangers to their health.
About how to treat people with equality and kindness.
And I have tried to model those values on a daily basis.
So, I am proud to report that my eldest apple has not fallen far from the tree.
A budding journalist, for her first-ever post as Postscript Editor of her university paper, she chose to write about…Positivity.
I couldn’t be more proud.
Please take a moment to read her take on positivity in the wake of misfortune or tragedy. here
And thanks to the trees from which I too have not fallen far,
for most of my values are theirs.
