I read this blog post today by way of following various links from one blog to another. Serendipity I suppose. But it did make me think. Sometimes we get so weighed down by upsets, worries and 'to do lists' . Our time most days is short. Maybe because we are remembering and thinking for two people instead of just for ourselves. When time is short we feel hassled and overlook the pleasant parts in our day or week. It is easy to forget. We should stop to think about them; the good things. A way of taking stock - and counting our blessings. For carer's it may not be as it would for others who may count on a holiday trip, a meal out or a party. But smaller pleasures. They count too.
Today: 1 - the sunshine, blue sky and occasional single clouds drifting over head. 2 - coffee with friends in town. 3. A huge bag of Victoria plums left on the doorstep by a good neighbour - that are now cooked and frozen down for a taste of summer in winter.
