I woke up to a blue sky and sunshine – guaranteed to put a smile on my face and a skip to my step. Mom and I sat outside, sipping our tea/coffee, enjoying the sunshine this morning and we got to talking about this day 19 years ago. It was cathartic talking it out and I didn’t realize how that day still touched us in such a deep and profound way.
It was a defining moment in our lives. Everything changed after 911. The way we fly especially, but also other modes of transportation. The way we vacation, the way we look at people. But also the way we appreciate our neighbours, our friends, and especially our family. How we live in the moment, share a smile with a stranger, tell someone on the elevator how much you love their shoes, tell our loved ones that we appreciate them and all they do for us, you know, the little things.
And then COVID happened. Another defining moment. We can still do all of the those little things but perhaps virtually instead.
If you’re not doing those little things, ask yourself why not. It’s never too late to start.
Today’s photos are a shot of my backyard with a blue sky peeking out of big white fluffy clouds, an orange Gerber daisy, Fuchsia, and the daily sunflower photo.
