In the Lakes, with our grandson. There is such joy in the simple things – how a puzzle fits together, a brick fits one on top of another, the noise of the dishwasher or simply being chased and caught.
I am an over-complicater of life. I am often disappointed because my expectations are a little too high. So I’m going to learn from our boy. I’m going to sip my coffee and not slurp it down. I’m going to wake up and look at the morning light as it spills into our bedroom and breathe before I jump out of bed. I’m going to sip a glass of wine and wonder at its taste or a glass of water. I’m going to wonder at the moment instead of worrying about tomorrow or regretting what happened yesterday. It’s been said before and will be said again, but it’s worth saying until we really get the hang of this.
Oh yes, and the paper back will be out in the next couple of weeks.
