Last week, it was 2…
This week, 3.
Events that is. On the same Saturday.
Honestly, it was good. More than that, it was excellent.
And going beyond the beautiful faces we saw, that we hadn’t seen for so long…
The laughter we shared with our loved ones…
The places we visited, and the many more memories we made there…
It was the acknowledgement of hope, of breaking through to the other side, of that thing that I spoke about so much during covid…
It was all of this, and realising that the light is really truly coming my way.
Like the sky today. So brilliantly blue, the sun shyly peeking from behind the tree’s branches, ready to spring out and yell “peek a boo!” to announce it’s grand arrival at any moment.
And those white clouds… they were necessarily there to show us how beautiful the sky was, in their slow departure.
But they’re going. Just look at them leaving the scene.
And on our way home tonight, reminiscing about all the fun we had today, ABBA’s song ‘Chiquitita’ came on.
And the same line gets me every time.
“Chiquitita you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they’re leaving
You’ll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song Chiquitita.”
And it was just so perfect, for everything.
Try once more
Like you did before
Sing a new song
