A spring in our steps

As i filled my kettle to brew some water for a cuppa, i heard the sound of laughter from the park close to my house, i looked out of the window to the beautiful and welcome sight of children dressed in bright colours playing and having fun on the swings, some were kicking a ball around while a few rode their bikes around in glee.

Spring Code

I smiled to myself, the joys of spring and summer were coming through. Already, there was a spring in the steps of people, they were taking more relaxed and measured steps. Everyone including myself had started walking with our hands at our sides, backs straight, heads held high and looking at where we were going to.

The sunshine, warm breeze, clear clouds transmit their special brand of magic. Fashion and so much more comes alive from this time of the year.

The walk code for winter (fast and rushed movements, hands in pockets, hoods, scarfs and caps covering our faces) was being replaced gradually.
I welcomed the changes.

My thoughts were interrupted by the voices of my children and grandchildren who were visiting and spending the Easter holidays with me. They called for me to join them to take pictures.
My daughter offered to make my cup of tea after failing to convince me to settle for a cool drink, i thanked her and smiled, i have done well, i thought to myself, all the years of uncertainty, bringing up my children alone when their father walked out on us, was well worth it, I am the richest and luckiest person i know (ha ha), having my family who are there for me, loving, respecting, caring for me in this day and time is all the wealth, i would ever want.

I gave a silent and heartfelt prayer to God Almighty, everything possible is by his grace and to God, i always give all glory.

Advantages of the new age

After our selfies sessions are over (lol), my grandchildren have taught me so much about current trends, i feel so cool, we are on to Skype sessions with some of my nephews and nieces.
I love being up to date with events in the life of my immediate family and glad that the cousins (younger generation) know each other, even if they live in different continents.

As much as i like to point out how fast paced life has become due to technology and gadgets, i acknowledge and appreciate some of the advantages. I like that i can communicate easier with my family but they all know that this does not replace family get together's.

Family is love and love is the greatest gift of all.
