September days

As I type the air is fresh and full of the after the rain quietness.
Last night we got our first real rain complete with lightenings. 
What a spectacle!

In the past couple of weeks I have been spending two afternoons per week 
 in our son's soccer practice. 
It is a cluster of peace and relaxation.
Watching him play
seeing him happy with his pals
nothing like a soccer game for boys!

I seat next to my husband and read my book. 
The header above reads:
Beginning of the Autumn

There are other parents, too, mostly dads, and they watch eagerly. 
Or they talk about their jobs and the new taxes that the vultures in power are throwing over our heads.

But I am shutting out their voices 
and for those little moments 
I'm a child again
watching football
and reading a story book on happiness.

Life stands still
and though Fall is here
I focus on 
and it is painted pink and green
focusing on the good stuff

I hope your life comes in the most beautiful colours.

Happilly linking to
love, Irene

You are right - whatever life throws at us (and is out of our control), to focus on the positive, the good. Such a gift to be surrounded by the innocence of childhood as a parent:) Thank you for joining Post Of The Month Club! XOLaura
