It is the last week of term and one of the most full-on and pressurised weeks I have had so far this year.
It is one of those weeks you wish for the end of before it has even started.
Wishing away the days… Wishing for the next day, the next week to begin.
One of those weeks where you catch yourself teetering on the edge of the abyss…
This was the moment today that pulled me back. The moment that reminded me to be fully present right where I am. The moment that I made time to pause…
‘Can I just have a little drive Mummy? Would you like to sit with me while we have a little drive?’
Truth be told, we needed to leave, there was lots to do, planning, preparing, dinner to cook. But I paused and sat while we had a ‘little drive’ and we laughed and I relaxed and felt that spark of joy when life courses through your bones and you feel fully alive.
And I remembered ‘this too shall pass’ the busyness, the pressure, the stress but I won’t get to live these days again and that’s what I want to do, live them fully.
