I know this is the goal for my Sundays often but as with much of life and our responsibilities and cares this does not happen as much as I would desire and yet how often we really do need this.
Yesterday was one of those rare days that was relaxing and refreshing though as I write it out I am sure there was nothing of great interest,except to my own personal refreshment.
After Mass we had coffee together and just talked together then off we went to do some exciting grocery shopping together.
Sounds like a hot date right?
When we got home we sat outside under a tree and ate wonderful homemade pizza, sipped coffee and watched the children have bike ride races and again just really chat together.
After this the children begged for a game together and so we played an easy one for mummy :)
The simple pleasures like playing hide and seek with the children are times that really bring me peace in my heart. I have no idea how I missed him, I was the seeker, as I walked right under that tree and I always look up cause it's his favourite type of hiding place :)
While we wandered around putting toys and things away we, well Rogan actually, discovered a hiding place that the hens had been laying eggs in, one of his unused Rabbit hutches.
As I reflect upon this day I recognise again that the joy of life is lived in the every day moments of everyday ordinary activities that we have the opportunities to build special memories with if we only take the time.
Blessings to you and your homes,
