Slice of Life Challenge #Day 24
Today I realise we are here for the foreseeable future, no way out, all flights cancelled as well as public transport and a virtual lockdown nationwide.
I will choose to remember the rays of sunshine peeping over the hill’s horizon and opening up our smiley flowers.
I will choose to watch the little bees buzzing slowly and with great concentration, sipping nectar from the centre of those opened petals.
I will choose to remember the sweet twittering refrain of the birds early this morning and again this evening, because it is so much quieter than usual. When I look up they are bustling in a small cloud of fluttering wings around the treetops.
I will choose to remember our small resident squirrel scuttering quick, slow, quick, quick, slow across the road, up our neighbour’s steps and then flowing effortlessly up into a tree in the school grounds. I’ve never seen him so out in the open for so long before.
I will choose to remember we have a dog and a cat here who are always available for petting, stroking, cuddles and conversations.
I will choose to remember my students’ sweet faces and their laughter spinning out across the playground and hope I get to see them again before too long.
We are blessed!
