Being present in each moment

Each moment is a special gift and our ability to utilize this  gift is an art if mastered can bring great success.
Being home as I like to call Trinidad the country where I spent most of my life; there’s always the opportunity to reflect amongst my favourite nature places. I spent some hours with my children and family on the beach. It wasn’t the solitude that I have grown used to in these places but now with my children there is a new dimension. Squeals, laughter, tears at times makes me work harder to grab those moments to reflect. I “sucked” it in when I held my son’s hand and we walked towards the water. I wanted the moment to freeze forever as I know these are moments that I will always hold dear. Three year old hands in mine… Soft sand and a beach that is all inviting.
I savoured my daughter’s tight hugs and smelled her baby scent as she said, ” mummy… Mummy…”
I’ve only been here three days but it feels so natural and I’m trying to live fully in each moment.
It was funny as I never thought after so many years I would have this moment again but I felt blessed to have it…Kids are exhausted at the end of the day so I had an extra thirty minutes I opted to read something light and engaging. Lying outstretched guess who is reading ….my dad… I didn’t say anything I just took the next sofa and did exactly the same thing.We exchanged few words…. It felt as if nothing changed after all these years. Blissful memories…
