Blessings dear friend, how are you today? Thanks for pausing and passing by; I wish you a peaceful and restful Easter.
Today’s post is short and sweet.
Sometimes I feel soooo full I could burst. My eldest daughter is home from uni and sitting around the dining table today eating lunch (my dad is also here and staying a few weeks with us) I felt so proud and glad to be their mum.
My dad’s face was a picture
Like all granddads he loves his grandbabies. I could see his eyes swell and quiet tears fill his heart as he sat and listened to the girls chat and catch-up with each other. Dad is 80 in November, so I know how precious spending Easter here with us is to him.
If you are a parent or care for children you know how tiring parenting can be, yet as I sat around the dining table admiring my daughters and father I felt full. As parents, aunts, uncles, family friends it is easy to get caught up in the busyness of life, yet we must take time to pause and remember these precious moments. I wish to share another Happy Moment with you.
The Clap Song
Whilst washing up, I recalled my childhood and for some random reason I started singing the Clap Song. I was really getting into it and happy washing up and blaring out the words.
My daughters are 21st century girls so immediately they went onto youtube, found the original and we had a happy mad half hour singing, dancing and clapping along to Shirley’s famous song. I am sure if you are listening to Shirley Ellis’s song you too will feel rays of lightness and joy. Then as I went back to washing up I felt sad as I recalled the days of slavery and discrimination and marvelled that artists could sing their song and bring joy-despite the racism they faced.
So in the spirit of love and wherever you are and whatever faith you follow, I wish you a life time of joyful memories and happy moments with family and loved ones.
