…I was lucky enough to go on a school trip with my son, sadly perhaps the last one ever as he moves up to comprehensive school in September (I honestly do not know how time went so fast *wipes tear from eye*).
We visited a wonderful place called Eden Camp in North Yorkshire, a museum which covers British social and military history from 1914 and is well worth a look.
All the children were asked to dress as evacuees from World War II and they all looked absolutely brilliant, I felt quite emotional looking at them all. In fact the whole trip was great and the museum was so interesting, especially the social history side of it.
I know this might sound silly but it was all quite emotional, thinking what people went through during the war and how they just got on with it coupled with the fact that I had an overwhelming feeling of my son growing up. It made me realise how lucky I am and that you have to try not to take everyday life for granted. It made me feel incredibly grateful…
…for my wonderful family and all the memories we share together
for the food on our table
for our lovely comfortable home
for the hugs I get from my son
for my health
for the many, many things that make my life a happy one…
…and whenever I feel down or like life is running away with me again I am going to come back and look at this blog post and remind myself exactly what I have.
I hope your weekend is treating you well, enjoy the rest of it, I know I am going to!
