A small thing…

So often life just feels chaotic and impossible, overshadowed by the big problems that seem to always be there, morphing and shapeshifting in the background. The biggies like  kids, mental & physical health, relationships, money – I imagine that most of us, most of the time, are grappling with one or more of these issues.

That’s why I love the idea behind Cas’ new linky, ‘All The Small Things’. Because you can’t escape the big problems – but you can, and should, grab onto the small pleasures and savour them, hold them up, turn them over, enjoy the sparkles dancing in the sunlight, and just for a moment, allow the big badass stuff to be eclipsed.

So I’m going to try and link up as often as  can – which probably won’t be as often as I’d like, being a humble 2 posts a week sort of  blogger. But never mind – here’s my inaugural Small Thing – it’s my first ever email from my biggest boy!
