Being Happy –

Can take some work, plus a handful of B, D and magnesium tablets.

It doesn’t take much to make me happy these days. An outing with my son and fresh home-brewed coffee in my thermos, carried in a hand-woven basket given to me for my birthday by Fabiola, my Fabulous Physio*. Add home-made sultana scones, a couple of squares of chocolate and a water view, and I am content.

Life isn’t always this way, so I treasure the moment and wish I could share it with those in a war torn country, or starving in a refugee camp.

I live for the moment, because the way the world is, by next month it could be us starving in a refugee camp.

May Peace find us all.

Sit beside me for a moment and gaze upon the sparkling water. Drink in the view and feel calm, as I do.Tomorrow it may be all rough, choppy waves and tossing boats, bills to be paid, jobs to be done, doctors to see. But that is another day, and this is now.
