When life gives you lemons, make lemonade…and remember to thank the lemon trees!
If we could see the world through the eyes of children we would believe in the unbelievable, hope upon the hopeless and love the unlovable with the greatest sincerity. The world would be the garden and we would be the green keepers – loving, hoping and believing in each seed we plant. This is the type of attitude that I see in the children at the President Kruger Orphanage.
On the 18th of May, the Grade 1-3’s welcomed their two new lemon trees “Barney” and “Japie” to the family. They were truly fascinated by the new adventure of planting and looking after their own trees – so excited that they could hardly contain themselves. The children were eager to help and get their hands dirty with the hope that the trees would grow with each passing second. If we could adopt a child’s philosophy we could save the planet, one step at a time.
