A friend of mine who like me is a “Grandpa” was saying how much he misses the little things at the moment: taking the grandchildren to the shop round the corner, watching TV together … the little, everyday, run of the mill sort of things. He is not alone.
Maybe a moment to give thanks for the little everyday things that we miss so much. Maybe giving thanks for what we still have and can do however different and limited it seems. And maybe resolving to make sure that we treasure and make time for those little things, rather than taking them for granted. Little things: those simple acts of love, kindness, forgiveness, being and sharing together. The things that matter: the things of beauty, the things of love.
Just to remind me of Sing Gold and looking forward to our singing together again@ here’s a simple favourite “Thank You” song.
