Went back to the kids’ lunch club at the parish church on the estate today. (We have good links with this particular church, and often do joint Easter, Harvest and Christmas services/events.) This time I saw five of the kids that came to our church holiday club, all of whom recognised me and ran up to say hello (bless!). I was pleased to see two twin girls and their brother who weren’t there last week; they’d come for the first three days or so of our holiday club and yet still remembered me.
One thing I find particularly love about it is the fact they just want to tell you things. Anything. They just want to talk to you.
“Lucy, I’m drinking apple juice.”
“Are you? Is it nice?”
“Yes.” Big smiles.
