I’ll let you in on a little secret, I spend my weekends with the best people. Two of them to be precise! They help me have lazy mornings and remind me to smile. They create more laughter than I’ve known in a lifetime and oh how they dictate we do fun things like swim, jump, make, give, sing, tickle, cuddle, spin and dance. Sometimes it is noon and all we’ve done is eat, laugh, read and play games. And we are still in our pj’s. Oh those are the best days. This weekend we were able to hang out with two other pretty cool people too, friends who are always welcome. And as I watched my two chase after a laughing 2 year old (the daughter of their Godparents), I realized just how happy life can be. Yes, this motherhood gig has taught me to listen to wee ones and embrace life like them. And for us this meant buying food for those in need, eating breakfast in bed, hanging out with our furries, reading books, seeing friends, dancing, tending the garden, picking our bounty, singing and playing a whole load of games: Pop, Memory, Sorry, Old Maid, Guess Who and Yahtzee, we loooove you! Life is fabulously wonderful, weekends especially. Whatever you did, I hope your weekend was lovely too.
p.s. Ignore the weeds, 10 days of no weeding our plot = we were overrun, though according to my daughter “weeds are beautiful too”.
