Prior to five hundred and twenty-seven days ago I was either in an alcoholic haze from drinking or a haze of suffering the after effects of drinking.
Now that I’m not in an alcoholic haze of some type I no longer miss those tiny moments of beauty around me.
Today I saw the sweetest things.
I saw a young severely handicapped girl in a wheelchair – the lady with her, family or a carer I don’t know, was enveloping this girl in a massive hug and the two of them were just laughing with pure love and joy.
I saw a family — that included a young girl who looked to be either a foreign exchange student or adopted — walking together through the streets arm in arm, full of life and joy and love.
The sweetest moments are everywhere, if you take the time to notice them, and let yourself feel the reflected love …. it’s contagious.
