Yesterday was my parent's 39th wedding anniversary and today is, of course, Father's Day. So this morning we descended upon the family house for chocolate cake (the secret family recipe of course) and general merriment.
After cake, coffee and presents, the glorious spring sunshine beckoned to us and we moved outside. We sat in a semi circle, basking like lizards under a clear blue sky, quietly chatting as the dogs played and birds fluttered overhead. I sat there, in the middle of my family, my hand resting on S's leg, eyes closed, sun warm on my face and felt utter peace. Stress and worry floated away. In that moment, I felt warm, loved, and oh so very happy.
I hope today brought you a similar moment of truly carefree peacefulness.
