Now that the sunshine has come and the air is warmer, new life is popping up in the garden every day. It is always so delightful to welcome flowers back. It is a simple pleasure to slowly wander around in the morning and see who is new today and it brings tremendous pleasure and a deep satisfaction. The rhythm of the seasons is grounding and reassuring, even if a little later than usual this year. Somehow, that has made it all the more special.
We have been away since Friday seeing family whom we have not seen for a very long time. We were blessed with sunshine all weekend, and spent all our time in the garden watching our little grandchildren playing happily. The sound of children’s laughter is a tonic for the soul. Ella, our eldest granddaughter has a bubble making machine. It was magical! Bubbles everywhere being caught in dancing rays of sunshine. She danced amongst them with the true abandonment of a child living in the moment of sheer joy.
I have told George I would like one. I got a rather strange look 🤣, but I am going to get one. The child in us should never die...
