WHATEVER your religion, Easter is a time for new beginnings.
Many people have the luxury of four consecutive days off and it’s a great opportunity to have a look at where your life is going so far this year, and maybe even change gear.
Our street talk shows the value people place on spending time with the people they love. Too often we don’t have time to stop for a breath and to take stock.
Four days could be enough to relax, pay some attention to what is happening to your family members, and make them feel loved.
Oracles of the Bush was again a great success for Tenterfield on the weekend, and it’s easy to see that beyond the entertainment, the camaraderie built between the people who go to many of the events creates a great atmosphere.
It’s almost a family atmosphere.
Having said that, is that the atmosphere you have within your family?
With the pressures of school and work and community commitments, and favourite television shows and hobbies, it’s easy to forget that your family is like your own club.
Personally, I will be taking some time to stop treating my closest ones like a disfunctional committee and start looking at them again as a family.
We don’t have many chances at this stuff. Every time you turn around your child has reached a new stage or another week has slipped away.
Tenterfield is a great place to live and to grow up, but to be really happy, your home has to be exactly as it should be.
The Tenterfield Star wishes you and your family the happiest Easter, whatever you are doing.
And if you aren’t working, a smile for those you come across who are never goes astray.
