With our daughters permission I have posted a story that she told me when she was eight years and ten months (now nine years). I think it displays her attitude to life and thoughts way beyond her eight years. So, thank you Sienna, for sharing your story, 'As the Years Pass On'.
by Sienna Taprell
The years pass on from life to life.
Every day is a new day.
It happens because the earth moves around and we have gravity to stay on the ground.
Every day we pass and life moves quickly. Night passes on and a new day begins.
Every day is a new adventure. Summer passes to Autumn and then Winter passes to Spring. When the leaves pass on, they change colours.
In America it snows and you can have a White Christmas.
When the weeks pass on the earth passes, and I’ll say it again, Life moves quickly.
From our head to our toes we grow from short to tall.
With our birthday we get big and sometimes we get lots of presents. You don’t need too many presents because you’ve got love.
Some time in the future, your Mum and Dad will die but don’t worry, you’ll still have their love. You’ll have a new life, get married, have kids, then you’ll get older and die.
It’s very sad that dogs don’t have a long life because every birthday they turn another seven years.
If the world ends, you’ll have a new life and pass on and a new planet will come and a new life will begin. Earth is the only planet with living things.
It’s a great time to spot a shooting star pass on the way to your future life in a day.
