Peace

Despite going to the dentist (where I had to re-tell the hygienist about Thomas because she forgot and was asking me about my kids) I've had a good, peaceful day.

I wish I could capture the feeling in my heart and mind right now - bottle it for a day when things aren't so peaceful, and save some to give away to people who are struggling to find a moment's respite from their sorrows.

If only it worked that way. I'm happy now - tonight, this minute - but I could just as easily be sitting in this same spot tomorrow crying my eyes out.

That's the way it goes. Up, down, up, down - no rules, no warning, no control.

So I'm just going to hang on to tonight.

And go enjoy it.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to bottle such moments and save them for a rainy day? Glad to hear you had a peaceful evening.
