The small things are so important aren’t they? The little kindnesses, the small acts of perseverance, the shimmers of beauty and hope. They make life what it’s meant to be – a thing to savour and drink in, a gift to receive with appreciation.
Lately, my small things have been appropriately summery…
*Walking in the woods, seeing the bluebells and wild garlic and listening to the stream.
*Walking in the fields, lying in the fields, looking out at the fields…
*Lying in the garden in the sunshine.
*Driving in the country lanes and glimpsing the sea.
*Getting in the water: the river, the sea, the pool, the jacuzzi…
*Eating in pub gardens in the sun with family and friends.
*Watching the swallows.
*Time at home with Andrew and Jamie.
*Coffee and Amaretti biscuits.
*Seeing the children cheering each other on on Sports Day.
*Lighting candles in the evenings.
