Day 27 - Ellen and her first day at school

I have just returned from Exminster and taking Ellen my just 4 year old daughter to school for the 1st time.

For those of you who do not have children it may seem a small moment, but to those who who have children it marks a progression in their lives and those of their parents.

Dressed in her school uniform, handing her over to a complete stranger she who you just met 24 hours earlier and ready to grow up at just 4 it makes you emotional.

I wanted to cry, my emotions were running high in the classroom, the torment of 5 months took me back to the moment when I cried when she was born. When I was lying in the hospital bed you would not imagine days like today. Special days, days when you cannot turn back the clock. They are captured forever on film and in my brain.

People are the most important thing in the World, my life has changed.

I love my children, love my job, love my life, and beginning to love me, why has it taken 41 years to realise?

Easy Graham, I think I think of others differently, but not love everyone.

You are at the beginning of your life with children. Believe me there is so much more to come there is nothing else to do but to love life, especially the life you have given to them. Boy have you got a lot in store. Don't miss a single moment. It is the one thing in life that is really worth the anticipation. love
