Yesterday was a lovely day. Sunny and warm, which is unusual in October.
We had different plans for the afternoon, but finally, I told my son that it would have been a sin to waste such an admirable afternoon and we went to play football.
I always relish this time when we play together. The two of us or with a group of other guys. For me, it is the time when I can take care of two important areas of my Life Puzzle – my health and my relations with my son.
As the relations aspect went superbly, my health suffered as I strained my ankle. It was already swollen and blue yesterday. It is even more swollen and blue today. Every step is pain.
This every step with piercing pain reminds me of the wonderful time I had yesterday.
The time that I might not totally forget, but that would most probably be overshadowed by current events of today. Most of them perhaps of significantly minor importance.
My every painful step reminds me of the joy, happiness and connection I had yesterday. And I still do.
It’s something that puts a smile on my face (despite pain).
It’s something that makes me be grateful for what I have.
It’s something that makes my day a much better one.
