Today has been such a pleasure, it’s my eldest granddaughters fifteenth birthday. Time certainly does go so fast, Ashlee, my granddaughter, has grown into such a lovely young woman. She is full of love and compassion and has so much to give. We lived together until a few years ago when my daughter married and moved on. That was such a strange time and I have to admit I lost my way to a certain extent. Didn’t quite know what to do with myself, and often felt quite low. As time has passed and my daughter has had two more daughters I’m very grateful that she found her new soul mate, I’m of course never excluded and they all treat me very special. I write this partly to “off load” and partly to say things do change, sometimes we don’t want them to, and sometimes we do. Either way we live in an impermanent world, and if this virus that’s around has taught me nothing else it’s shown me just how weak we are and how quickly things can change.
But back to my granddaughters birthday, I enjoyed a lovely day where I was able to be in the present, most of the time, and I am so grateful for all the beautiful things in my very little world.
