Spinning Cartwheels

Spining Cartwheels

It was the perfect end to one of those perfect days. We had wandered along the beach as far as the eye could see both ways. The joy of being together, happy and whole, had over come the need for the possession of watches or money we were here as just a joint soul.

The light had begun to fade and we had watched the most glorious sun set full of the best colours that God had ever made.Night was falling and slowly the stars were beginning to emerge twinkling like diamonds such a wonderful sight we all started singing.

Such days as these are a precious gift we need to roll up every second and save them for a time when we need that little lift.So rarely do these moments come, that when they are this huge we need to save them for when things are so black you cannot see forward you can bring them forth and fill your minds centrifuge.

we found that crazy bar

It was dark and chilly and we found this crazy bar we had food and drink then we sat out the back where they had built a huge fire . Such joy we shared I shall never forget. It was so long ago and yet it is etched in my mind. So when I am at my lowest I shall think of then and remember life at it’s best.

    Remembering life at its best–these types of days your describe and picture here so effectively–is wonderful medicine to cure the “blues”, isn’t it?

      Yes Life is difficult at it’s best and can be desolate at it worst so yes to keep our memories alive because they are a blessing. Do you have happy memories to fall back on..well silly questions I bet you have many xx

    Remember the good and not the bad
    Life is only sad when we never make an effort to be glad

    Love this, so carefree and liberating, as the beach always is 🙂

    A wonderful thought, Willow. When we are at our lowest, we mustn’t forget the best!

    What an absolutely wonderful post. The whole idea of storing up good times for later reflection is so important. In our lives out here in New Mexico we know that feeling and feel it so sharply. Thank you for this post. It made me smile, and that’s a good thing.

    This is sweet…and so true…to hold these moments in our treasure chests is a special kind of medicine.
