ballerinas girls ballet slippers loved ones

Appreciate the people that you love

We’ve had a very busy few days the past week with ballet recitals and exams.   An almost normal week in the chaos that I call my life.

Then something happened which made me realise that sometimes you just have to stop, take a breath and appreciate your life and the people that you love.

This is the story that I heard from The Little mouse’s ballet teacher.

There is a little girl in one of the ballet classes that came in with lipstick on her lips for ballet class.  The teacher said that she looked very pretty with lipstick as it is unusual to see the little ballerinas with makeup.

The little ballerina said:   ‘My mommy died yesterday and I got all her lipstick and now I am going to wear it everyday and think of her.’

Appreciate the ones you love, life is unpredictable and strange and some days completely unfair.

    This is so important! It is so easy to get caught up in the busyness of everyday life that we forget to show appreciation. I haven’t done it for a while, but when I remember, I leave little post it notes in my children’s cereal bowls, telling them things I love about them etc., for them to find in the morning. Thanks for sharing the little girl’s story :-)
