My Happy Place
Yesterday I was looking through some photo's that we took at the weekend and this one really lifted my spirits. Our life of late hasn't been without it's ups and downs, stresses and strains. We have been hurt and disappointed with some personal and family issues and, for a while, these took their toll and they still do if I allow myself to dwell. However, I looked at this picture and some others we took and I suddenly felt very grateful and lucky. There are those who don't agree with how we choose to live our lives, and those who refuse to try and understand. They can be hurtful. But equally there are those who love us for who we are, and accept us, they understand and support us. They do not look at what we can give them, they especially don't expect us to give them what we don't have. For these people in our lives I am grateful. I am also now at peace with where we are, happy that we made the right choice and more determined to enjoy it all. And with this right at your backyard gate...well who wouldn't count themselves lucky?
