It’s a lot nicer when you don’t expect anything, and then the opposite occurs.
Something. We were happily bound to our home for the day, Sunday, the first day of Spring (yippee!) and also, Father’s Day.
Baby girl had happily helped her Dad open up his presents after our late morning breakfast, still on a high from the night before yet feeling the lack of sleep, when I got word, that our quiet day might be different.
I had seen my Dad at my bro-in-law’s birthday the night before after all… I had seen my whole family.
But then I heard my Mum and Dad were going to my sister’s place for a quick visit, and so then we might as well pop on by…
And what started as a very non-expectant day, had us around a table talking, laughing, and then watching the rain pour down later when the clouds decided to merge overhead.
It didn’t affect the sunset though. Just as I had been longing for Winter to be over, just as quickly it came to an end… and this seems to happen every year. June, July and the start of August feel so long, then mine and baby girl’s birthday passes and it no time – BANG!
Spring. Sunshine. Sunsets like this:
And so the message really is… don’t expect anything. Things are that much sweeter when you think of not much at all…
