Hi, my name is Naomi Lees, I work at Edmund Hillary School in Papakura. I met Dr James Jap a few years ago when he came to a meeting at school. I have really enjoyed Palliverse posts. When James asked recently who would help I said I would and did nothing about it for six weeks except for the occasional pang of guilt for not doing what I said I would do.
I looked after my parents in the last two years before they died. These posts will contain some of what I learned.
So here is the first of my contributions:
Looking for Kindness
When I was at school I was out on duty in the playground making sure the kids were safe in the playground. Then two little girls came up to me and one of the girls was new to the school and she was 5. The new girl was crying loudly. So I gave her a cuddle and asked her what was wrong and she said to me.
“Oooh I’ve lost my friend.”
“Don’t worry,” I said, “I’ll help you to find her.”
“What is her name?”
More tears then she said, “I don’t know.”
Then I said, “what does she look like?”
More tears then she said ………”She looks KIND.”
Bianca the other little girl who is 8, looked at me and we both smiled then I said very gently to her that Bianca knew all the kind girls so if she held Bianca’s hand and walked with her I am sure they would find her friend. Off they went in search of Kindness!Continue reading
