As I've been sitting here with my injured son these last few days, surrounded by lots of innocent sick children, I've had time to reflect and appreciate the most important things to me and be grateful for what I have.
These kids don't ask to be sick. I get to walk out of here with my son ( me walking, him in a wheelchair lol) but there are some kids who don't.
This has broken me as a parent.
I suggest anyone who thinks the material aspect of life is so important, to please come to the children's hospital.
Not just to see these unwell kids but to watch the selfless, gorgeous, hardest working people I know, put on their bravest faces to help our kids... words can't describe how incredible they are.
I will always remember this.
My thought for today is to be kind to each other. Have empathy.
We all have a story. We don't know if you've just worked a gruelling 12 hour shift or have had to deal with sick children. We can't always be happy and that's ok.
But here at Pasikato we ARE always happy to listen to all our customers troubles and woes. We don't judge you . We are located next to an xray/ ultrasound clinic so yes, we've heard some heartbreaking stories.
But I can tell you this....you will never be met by a rude person here. Nobody needs that. And I am always happy to sit and have a cuppa with you if you need to talk.
And After all, there is nothing like a good cuppa, the sun on your face, a few deep breaths and a graceful thank you to God to make you feel just that bit better.
And if you work at the children's hospital, show me your I.D and I'll shout you lunch here @pasikato.
You will always be held on a pedestal in my eyes.... #randwickchildrenshospital #brokenankle #grateful #bekind - 5 hours ago
