Today, is the last day of carnival and tomorrow we’ll start Lent.
So we celebrated……
We went to play on the beach…Benjamin’s fascination with the sand was awesome and when he realised there was water? lots of water? I had to hold him tight not to jump in!
Later we took ice-cream and cake and played at the swings and came back home exhausted and full of sand and smiles.
The sink is full of plates, the floors are full of grime, the clothes are a never ending pile of washing and folding…..but our hearts are full.
Tomorrow we will start sinking into our contemplative state. We will expand our hearts in different ways.
