“As we work to create light for others, we naturally light our own way” — Mary Anne Radmacher.
Another month, another visit to our favourite place in town – Lions Hope Home. Familiar smiles greeted us in eager expectance of what new shenanigans we would be up to this week. Seeing how much the kids loved the art session last time, we decided to do something along the same lines.
A rainbow of excited grins lit up as we opened up a whole bunch of coloured papers for the little ones. Unlike last time though, no paint bottles to get our hands dirty (sadly). This time we wanted to channel our creativity towards patience and diligence. And, what better way to do that than origami? In quiet reflection, the kids folded and unfolded according to the instructions. A bit confused at first, but eyes wide with hope and zeal as they saw it all come together in the end!
We followed the art session with the usual dose of outdoor play. A make-do basketball court with a hoop, that we made from scratch, brought tons of fun during our game time. We hope that hoop and ball becomes a regular part of their daily routine. As always, we ended the day with a therapeutic laughter and music activity.
Each time we step into this haven of hope, aptly named Lions Hope Home, we are reminded of the incredible power of community, compassion, and connection. We leave for the day with a renewed spirit and a heart full of faith and joy – ready to inject a little bit more passion into the hum-drum of daily life. We’d love for you to join our Little More Love community and experience the joy first-hand!
