‘A happy life is just a string of happy moments’

A happy life is just a string of happy moments. But most people don’t allow the happy moment, because they’re so busy trying to get a happy life.    –Abraham —

Lots of happy moments this weekend with our dear friends Karen and Gary coming to stay and Guy’s birthday to celebrate. It was a watershed moment for Julia as she made the birthday cake, start to finish, by herself. Sasha camped over night with friends and stayed up to 2am having a midnight feast. He was shattered today but was many happy moments the richer.

One such moment stood out for me today because I know it’s something that will soon disappear. Here it is, (Sasha is very camera shy but I managed to sneak this photo as we were walking along!):

Sasha – aged 10 – still takes my hand spontaneously when we go for walks and it’s just lovely to feel his tight grip in mine. A happy moment indeed.

  1. It’s been a while since I walked holding a child’s hand in mine. Your photo reminded me of how wonderful that felt.
