Do you ever really soak up the moments in your day?
Do you ever step back & recognise how important the unimportant really is?
2 years ago, my husband Ross was diagnosed with grade 4 brain cancer & it refocused everything for me.
Let me tell you that me and Ross met 8 years ago and have been inseparable ever since. He is my best pal. We really love each other. There’s a total and utter support for each other. Not a thing is hidden, we challenge each other and are better for the other one being there.
We aren’t that soppy couple in the traditional sense, you won’t see us snogging in public or celebrating Valentine’s Day, we are much more likely to be correcting each other’s grammar!
But we enjoy each other’s company & NEVER struggle for something to talk about or laugh at.
Since the big cancer bomb I’ve had a heightened awareness to how the simple, insignificant things will be the things I remember most.
The days we spend chatting about politics or the chaos in the garden, with the kids.
This is our life. No focusing miles in front of us, our life is around us now. I try to soak up these moments and remember that when we are old, it’s the little things we will remember.
The times Ross warms up my side of the bed before I get in (because he knows I’m always freezing), the mornings with the kids jumping on our bed, laughing & playing I-spy, the tiny nothing moments.
These moments we must cherish, because they are blink of an eye and they’re gone, moments.
I sometimes feel quite overwhelmed by the joy in my life and so very, very lucky.
I hope you look at your life this week and be alert to it, enjoy the boring times.
Don’t seek out extremes, find beauty in the mundane.
“Enjoy the little things in life, because one day you will realise they were the big things.”
