Each and every day we embrace simplicity, we must choose it consciously. For what should be simple everyday things are sometimes a stretch of our imagination – or time. And we all know that it is hard to beat time, you either have it or you don’t.
When a child draws and proclaims it is the best picture ever – do you have the time to relish in her proud and smiling delight?
When your knitting hasn’t advanced another row do you think about not having the time, or about the length of time it is taking – or simply know that it will be done in time?
When the sky is grey can you make time to play? Can you enjoy your work from outdoors or in? Will you choose alacrity or will you opt out?
Simple everyday things are yours alone. Share them when you can with the people you care about, because caring about each other with all your beating heart is one of those simple everyday things no one should live without.
