I looked out tonight in my bedraggled backyard and there they were. Harry, Lamborghini and the chickens all happily munching away and doing their own thing. If you look closely enough you can also see a magpie and a rabbit beyond the gate.
There were kookaburras laughing in nearby gum trees and magpies warbling.
All I needed was a kangaroo to come bounding through the back paddock to complete a perfect Australian picture, but alas they were unobliging tonight.
There they were in a scene of peace and calm. Co-existing, in the same patch of land.
All so incredibly different from each other and yet so accepting.
If only we humans were as tolerant.
Today as we enter the first day of December my wish is for more acceptance and understanding of our differences. In our families, our workplace, out in the world.
Realising that for all of our faults and imperfections we all have value and a place.
Every single one of us.
Animals can teach us so much. As humans become even more advanced with technology we still have a lot to learn, sometimes from the smallest creatures on the earth.
Happy December everyone.
Here’s to peace, love and friendship and adopting a slower more understanding pace as we head towards Christmas.
