Chaplain's Chatter

G’day Little Grove Primary community,

I’m hoping everyone is doing well as we move through term 3. It’s almost hard to believe that we’re nearing the halfway mark for the term already, it feels like first day back was only yesterday!  It will be summer again before we know it!  In fact, as I write this the weather keeps changing from warm and light to dark and cold outside which is a great reminder that sometimes our moods and attitudes can be affected by the weather.

Almost every year, as it begins to cool and get wet outside, I catch myself daydreaming and longing for the warm sunny coastline and scrub of my old homeland up in Carnarvon, going for a fish or walking through a dry riverbed. This often leads to long dreary days of wandering aimlessly wanting to be back up where it’s warmer or sitting in the car on warm days imagining that I’m out near the mighty Gascoyne River. I know that I’m not alone, in fact many people tend to feel a little more down during the winter months. So, it’s important to be careful and considerate of others as well as extending a little more generosity and patience to those who might not be the biggest fans of the cold weather.

So stay warm and try your hardest to warm those around you by being kind and encouraging to them during the colder months.

Cheers, Jed.
