Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy. Guillaume Apollinaire This kind of hits it on the head for me at the moment.  I need to stop all the hustle and bustle, all the pushing and pulling and just be.   So this morning I am thankful for the boys returning from the shop with some lovely flowers and I bit my tongue about not having enough money.
