some simple things

I'm playing along with Christina's Simple Things challenge. For every blog post celebrating a simple thing or things today, her family is donating $1 to Medecins Sans Frontieres, as support for their relief efforts in Haiti.

And although I could hold a wee selfish and shallow grudge against them, I won't. Of course.

Because forgiveness is a simple thing.

As is ...

... discovering a daddy crush when dropping your daughter off at playschool and henceforth having something to look forward to on the school run ...

... booking 4 days away in a river cottage - we go next week!

... spending the afternoon in a beautiful place with a beautiful person ...



... being reminded of a previous visit there, and reflecting on how much changes in 6 months ...

... fighting waves of nostalgia (is it nostalgia?) as I think how these afternoons of just the two of us will soon be over ...

What a beautiful photograph...and yes, forgiveness..it is a simple thing to do, though at times it seems like climbing a mountain. And when we achieve forgiveness? Such a feeling of peace. Lovely list.
