Food For Thought...

I don't write too much about Emily. She is our little tween. Aged ten, she is on the cusp of high school, the cusp of dramatic change emotionally... and she is probably still trying to make sense of everything.

Does everything ever make sense anyway?

Tonight, she said she might like to be a vegetarian.

"Because Mum...we don't really think about it do we. Animals get put in cages, then fed, and then killed. And we don't even think. It's just not right is it."

And I stopped what I was doing.

What a thoughtful and incredibly aware and sensitive child she is.

Food for thought, indeed.
