Last night, I was thinking about the weekend, and I was wondering what my stand out moment was - kind of like a little review in my head of the past two days - when it suddenly hit me... Why not make this a regular post every Monday and ask all of you which moment stood out for you?!
So, it will take some reader participation. I'm counting on you. All you need to do is leave a comment letting me know what moment stood out for you over the weekend. It can be any sort of moment - fun, happy, sad, disappointing...whatever. Just tell me about it.
I had lots of great moments this weekend. It was an exhausting one. We had a garage sale on Saturday. It was really hot, and looking at all our stuff laid out in our carport and on our front lawn brought mixed emotions for me (but I'll write about that later). I loved watching the boys lazing on our couch (for sale), positioned under a shady tree, then later filling bottles with water and throwing the water at each other until they were soaking wet. We laughed a lot.
My 6yo had his (very) belated birthday party yesterday, and it was great watching everyone have so much fun.
But my stand out moment was a simple, quiet, slow walk to the local shop with my 3 year old yesterday afternoon. He pushed his toy trolley along, ready to store our few items needed for dinner, and as we walked we chatted. We talked about playing putt-putt that morning and about all we had to buy at the shops and where we were going this week. Then at one point, he reached out his hand and grabbed mine, with the other pushing his trolley. Not to cross a road or anything, just because he wanted to, and I felt so lucky to be a mum. It was a moment where we had no rushed deadline to meet. No pressing timeframe to follow. It was relaxed and easy.
Life's little moments, huh?
So tell me - what was your stand out moment this past weekend? Would love to read yours!
