The glorious weather of this weekend was the perfect taster of things to come. Walks on the beach, spontaneous BBQ’s, and days where you lose all sense of time just wandering and enjoying the ordinary moments of life in the sun.
I love to watch the kids on the beach; toying with the waves, rolling in the sand and collecting everything they deem to be precious. They are mini beach combers, scouring the sands for treasures and filled with energy to run and play. We laughed our heads off as they dragged the bag of rocks, shells and other paraphernalia across the sand, unable to carry it now with all they had found, and unable to part with those “special” boulders either. They just loved it.
Whatever the weather, we each find joy in the beach and I am grateful for the sunny Saturday we spent there this weekend. It is our happy place filled with moments of joy and excitement. Ordinary moments spent combing the beach and paddling. Running and digging, sitting and observing… strolling without watching the clock, and laughing together, all whilst the sun beats down…these are the things I look forward to and am grateful for having together this week.
