Simply a moment - January
My hands are still as I listen to the silence.
I look about me at the blind on the kitchen window, the draught excluder in the shape of a cat that is promised to one of my grandsons, who has loved it since he could stand up even though it was taller than him. I see the birthday presents wrapped and ready for the very important third and eighth birthdays coming up next month. I look down the hall to the front door, covered now by the thick curtain that keeps out the draughts. Mr M comes out of the front room and looks expectantly at me.
"Ready?" he asks. "Yes I'm ready," I say, leaving the cards and walking quickly towards him. A moment of silence is sometimes all a person needs to take stock of how fortunate they are.
This moment is part of something given to us by Alexa at Trimming the Sails Why not pop over there and take a look at some of the other moments.
