My husband came home on Sunday after being overseas for a fortnight. Today was the first day since he returned that we had been able to spend some quality time together, away from the distractions of home and work. We went to the lovely Brighton Baths Cafe for lunch. Myles slept most of the way through, and woke up towards the end. Time apart makes you appreciate the simple things in life, like just being present in someone’s company without being caught up in your usual habits or with distracting technologies. It’s only when we make an effort to really be present with someone that we can experience real connection and conversation.
Myles CF has really made me make an effort to live fully in the present moment. Without consciously choosing to live in the present I would experience much greater fear and grief over things unknown in the future.
