I’ve been on a hiatus from posting the 30 Days of Gratitude posts lately, because of family commitments over the school holidays. I have been thinking about it daily and marking all the things I’m grateful for in my mind. I was really blessed to have both children home for three weeks, which is a rare occurance these days. Seeing the children playing together has made me reflect on my childhood and which memories I hold dear and are grateful for. I am grateful for the memory of my grandparents taking my cousin and I to the beach after playschool. I remember racing down to the shore and dipping my feet in the freezing water. The water would be so cold that I would bury my feet as deep as I could into the sand. The waves washed the sand away and I would start the process again. I loved the feeling of impermanance and thinking that if I do something or build something it could be washed away and I have the power to start again. I took my children to the same beach last week and we were able to make memories together as my grandparents and I did so many years ago. They played at the same park near the beach too, which was my way of passing the torch and watching my children with the same joy as they would have.
Which memory are you grateful for today?
Love and Blessings,
