First day back at school today and I was feeling out of sorts;
- impatient with the the youngest who was still at home and being all kinds of demanding.
- resentful of the mess that lay all around - what looked like fun holiday games yesterday, today just mocked at me and my inadequate domestic goddess skills.
- scratchy, irritated eyes from a niggling viral conjunctivitis.
- swirling, chaotic plans in my head when what I seek is clarity of thought.
Then the afternoon sunlight hit the blossom tree over the road.
I think I may have gasped out loud.
Five minutes of time alone, snapping away, marvelling at the pinkness of the coming spring was all it took to turn my day around.
If only it was always that easy.
