Full Circle



Once upon a time there was s special little boy who went to a lovely little school.

His mum worried about him but he was well cared for in his little school.  He received great instruction there and was introduced to lots of different activities. One of which was being brought on weekly swimming sessions, to a lovely little pool.

His mum used to go too, to help out with her boy and his classmates in this lovely little pool and to help him shower and change afterwards. His mum remembers these trips vividly and with fondness.

In time the little boy grew up and went to a bigger school, where he was also well cared for, educated and introduced to even more new activities. The clever little boy worked hard and thrived.

He still loved to go swimming and went to many different lessons and over time became quite a good little swimmer.

And then one day, suddenly while no-one was looking, the little boy became a teenager. Over night. Flick of a switch and there he was, all grown up. Almost.

He moved to an even bigger, more grown up school where he's been introduced to a multitude of interesting,  academic subjects and even more activities.

One of these activities is swimming and requires the now-teenage boy to walk from the school with his classmates, unsupervised, to a certain lovely little swimming pool.....

It was a happy and proud mum who patiently waited afterwards in the afternoon sunshine, nonchalantly reading her book, while her son finished off showering and dressing.

The teenage boy had fun but doesn't remember being here before and his mum is kind of happy about that.

She has a smile on her face, that widens the more she thinks about the journey they've travelled so far. In her head she silently pats both herself and her child on the back thinking 'job well done' and feels rather astonished at how things on this section of the journey seem to have come full circle.

They drive home in companionable silence and while the teenage boy gets on with doing his homework, his mum relaxes for a while and reads some more of her book.




The End
(For now)
