I’ve spent a good part of today thinking about how important quality of life is vs the material things.
I went (with Pete Hodgson and David Clark) to visit the Mosgiel Abilities Resource Centre, in Dunedin, and it reminded me what’s most important about life.
The quality of the interactions. The opportunities you have. The enduring friendships you build. And the memories you are left with.
Whether it’s your old dad, disabled family members, the people around us who are struggling.
And then there’s our kids.
All parents want their kids to experience life to the full & have good values. More than they want them to have the latest stuff.
Why can’t we adults translate those hopes for our kids into the way we lead our lives?
And why, as Annette has asked today, can’t we all work together on some of these things?
