I quickly want to share with your 10 glorious minutes I had in the kitchen. I had the windows wide open as cool June days allow as I began heating up some butter in the frying pan for a late lunch. It was antibiotic free, free-run eggs on the menu and I was looking forward to the scrumptious meal with a veggie sausage.
As I looked out over the sink, past my reading nook and out the window I was greeted by dark rolling clouds moving in accompanied by a strong cool breeze which had hastily picked up speed. I couldn’t help commenting to Ben on the glorious feeling of the suddenly intense wind gusting over me blowing in the clouds. I happily fried up the eggs, soaked my coffee grounds in the pre-warmed cafetiere and soaked myself in the refreshing breeze. The rain fell down as quickly as the wind had picked up and then ended as abruptly.
The sun barged it’s way through the fleeing clouds and I was left with a slight breeze, the sun glinting off the window and two plates filled with steaming food for empty bellies. I must say the coffee was better then it had ever been, but maybe that was a result of my wonderful mood blown in with the breeze.
How quickly these moments can spring themselves upon us. Don’t pass them by in fear of your dinner burning, soak in them, soak them up and then reflect on your gratitude for even the most seemingly minimal of moments.
