January was gloomy (during which we saw the sun only on 16 days!) and February promises to be no better. The short, grey-laden skies day after day demotivates a person and encourages gloom. It is difficult to remain upbeat when the blue skies are hidden and the sun makes a rare appearance.
At the end of last week, I noticed something that made me smile with pleasure. It is a sight that brightens my day when I walk into my bedroom at the end of a day’s work.
The bright pink flowers on my cactus bring me double pleasure: the beauty of the flowers on a grey winter day; and the fact that this is the first time my cactus is flowering in the three years that I have had it. This is a flower that encourages me to smile every day.
What made you smile this week?
