Impromptu Joy

  1. Joy is often found in this place, unplanned, unrehearsed, unscripted. The biggest challenge is paying attention, remembering and being grateful for those very ordinary moments that are really magical ones, just because we were fully present in the moment.

Impromptu joy over the last week looked like this;

  • going  for a short drive after getting ice cream, ending up next to a big dune, leaving the car running because we were just getting out for five minutes to see if the sand is cool enough to walk on. It turned into lots of laughs while feet are burning as we were struggling to get up to the top
  • practicing phonics and while saying mmmmm, my lips were seriously being tickled by the vibration of the letter which lead to endless jokes and laughter interrupting our bedtime routine
  • G getting an unexpected gymnastic lesson from an aunt on how to land when jumping. The excitement, pride and the smile on her face said it all
  • Meeting up with a friend for coffee, connecting and sharing happening on a deep level, feeling understood.
