“Often life’s pleasures pass us by simply because we don’t take a moment to focus on them… Make a point of noticing everyday something that uplifts your spirit or tickles your heart… Stop to breathe in the joy of this moment and then tell someone about it. Share your joy and revel in it. When your joy is savoured, and then shared, it is magnified…” ROBIN GRILLE
Weekend get togethers with people that live near and so very far, far away. Time has stretched into years but conversation just flows…loving that.
Deep cups of chai on darkened mornings. Little ones sleep on, just me and my chai and quiet, so quiet…loving that.
Seeing pink faced, sweaty little boys laughing together. Everything is so hilarious… loving that.
Conversations that make you think, ponder, and dig deeper than you would normally venture…loving that.
Seeing her little upturned face to the rain. A joyous smile as rain drops splatter on those soft cheeks…loving that.
Tweaking favourite recipes to incorporate different flavours. Getting the thumbs up from Mr Chocolate, friends wanting the recipe and Monkey Boy declaring me to be the best mama in the world after eating it…loving that.
If anyone else would like to do a ‘loving’ post, (or simply write something in the comments). Please let me know, link back to this post and I’ll do a link up. I would love to know about those little moments in your week that have tickled your heart.
