Her vibrant expression of colors is what captures my attention and I wasn't the only one in awe of her delicious art work the other day when we were all the laying on the bed reading books.
My husband has a real gift with the Aboriginal community, a love and compassion that has flowed over to me in the years of us being married.
There is a moment I recall on our honeymoon when Dave & I were on our way out for dinner in Noosa and an Aboriginal walked past us and says to Dave "hey brother", and Dave was like "yeah, hey bro" and I was like 'right'!
Now over the years I have come to understand and respect Dave's gift with the Aboriginal community and the people just love him and Dave loves them and everywhere we go where there are aboriginals Dave is always accepted into there groups and because I am a part of Dave they just accept me, it's really amazing!
In talking about the aboriginal community, today the movie 'Rabbit-Proof Fence' is airing on channel 7. Based on a true story, set in 1931, three Aboriginal girls set off on a trek across the Outback in search of their family after escaping a government mission.
The children and I will be watching this for it is a very real part of our history and I want my children to see how Aboriginals were treated and to develop an understanding and a compassion for the aboriginal community.
