This morning, I took the children to the park. This may seem mundane to some but I have not taken my children to play at the park for a couple of months now. Our weekends have been full of family weddings, meeting up with family and friends as well as the children going off to see their father, amongst other things. The time seems to have just slipped away lately.
Today was different. We did not have to be anywhere for any particular time. We did not need to get dressed up. We did not need to be on our best behaviour. We had a morning free to do what we wanted and we could walk at normal speed, rather than the fast-forward motion that we are becoming accustomed to. We savoured every moment. It was heaven!
