The first lockdown was hard because we needed more outside space to run around in. So we moved house in October and, in November, I had to move schools.
The day I started my new school I felt really nervous and I also felt very sad because I was leaving all my good old friends behind. On the way to school I didn’t really want to talk a lot, but when I got there my new teacher was really nice.
When it was playtime I made friends really easily and I felt much more courageous than I had felt that morning. That’s when I understood that God was with me and had given me that courage, because God knew that I needed it. That helped me to make friends and now I’m really settled. One of the reasons I felt that God was with me was that God was in the kindness of the children and teachers who welcomed me.
God is with us!
