Life had been pretty hectic for me lately…busy with baking after work, weekends will be worse – marketing to be done and more cooking and baking, especially when the Piggies are back home with us :) )) ( not complaining ) I ENJOYED those cooking and baking moments and seeing Piggies slurping down those food and desserts!
Today is Monday and I dread going to office on Monday….BUT life is such, we have to keep on going no matter how much we dread it. As usual, I will be busy preparing my lunch to take to work in the kitchen and rushing through to get myself ready for work . I can feel something inside me looking for that moment of rest……
While waiting for him this morning, I took the clothes out to dry in the garden. After finishing the job, normally I will rush back into the house to hurry Daddy coz I do not want to be late for work. BUT this morning, I paused for a moment to look around my small garden and behold I saw my athriums aka “ naughty boy” in blooms again. Guess what… I ran inside the house and took out the digital cam and started clicking away.
For once, I am not in a hurry to rush to work…(“,) coz I know that when I reached home later in the evening, I won’t be able to capture the mood and the scenario would not be the same. I will not have the time to PAUSE for a moment…Daddy expects dinner to be served early…hmmph
I realized that the roses are blooming too. Buds this morning but later in the afternoon it will starts to blossom. I smiled gleefully and really, I felt so good the whole morning and what a nice way to start the morning. Beautiful flowers to cheer me and put me in the right mood before I started the day work.
It's true, in the midst of our daily hustle and bustle, our flurry of daily activities, rushing here and there, we tend to forget to pause for a moment and see LIFE .... as it is...steady and continuous, ongoing and faithful... just like my plants ,unaffected by us. Looking at them this morning has renewed my strength for the day :)
If I had not taken a moment to pause and looked around the garden , I would have let this beautiful sight slipped through . And I found my moment of rest this morning in this buds :)))
