We had a great day at the Maritime College in Ringaskiddy today. A group of children with leukemia and their families were having a day out. We had bouncy castles, face painters, balloon animals, ice creams and other goodies. It was great to see some many happy faces.
That is one of the joys of being a childrens' entertainer. We get to so many events and parties, and we are part of the fun. It is great to bring a smile to a child's face through the magic and the puppets. Sometimes that joy is tinged with a hint of sadness, especially when the children are sick. But life is to be lived, no matter what difficulties we are facing. Which is why it was so satisfying to see all the kids - those with leukemia and those without - having so much craic this afternoon.
