What makes a day special?
Is it a celebration? A birthday? An anniversary of some sort?
Or is it just an ordinary day studded with the little things that you notice when you slow down long enough?
The simple deliciousness of a roasted mushroom in 2 pieces of bread
The size and colour of fruit and vegetables
The taste of tiny red grapes as they hit your mouth, each one bursting with sunshine, so sweet they almost taste like blueberries and leave the taste and feel of sugar on your fingers
The simpleness of trees swaying in the wind
…of laughing at a mug
…of washing hanging on the line
…of watching the neighbours cluck around and say hello
…of finishing something that will be treasured
…of noticing the beauty in the simple and discarded
…of buying a friend an impulse gift- just because!
Yes, today has been a special day.
