remembering the fires

Thomas (5) brought this picture home from school. I asked him to tell me about it.

"I was drawing, but then the fire came and burned up my beautiful garden. I didn't want it to, but it did! Why did it, Mummy?"

At some level, in some way, Thomas is still processing last summer's bushfires. Even when his mind isn't aware of it, his hands are drawing his anxiety, and showing that we still have some issues to talk and pray about.
