Revel in the rich and varied tapestry
That stretches through one day.
There’ll always be colours you do not like
But every so often you’ll stumble upon
A thread of gold that has woven through,
And it is then that we sigh
And say, ‘aaaaahhh, it was worth it.’
We did go to the theme park today and it was ok. I posted this picture on social media, and once again, it got me thinking about the way that life is made up of the moments you choose to embrace.
We both look really happy in this photo on the river rapids, and we were. But what this photo doesn’t show is that Noah almost fainted with heat stroke before we’d even made it through the entrance. And then I suffered the same fate a couple of hours later.
I don’t want to make this a post about social media only being a show reel of all the best bits, because we all know that to be true. But we do need to hold onto the best bits in our own mind.
Really, this is nothing revelatory, but I just felt it necessary to say that when I look back on today, I’ll remember the fun (and possibly a little laugh that both of us are such losers that we almost died of heat stroke when it was less than thirty degrees outside).
I had fun even though it was far from a perfect day. I hope that you also had a slightly shitty day that you are able to see the brighter side of. They’re always the best kind of days.
