Stocking the fridge with icecream and chicken curry and fresh vegetables
Buying books to read and having them lying around the bed/house
Music wafting around in the background
Having a bath in hot hot water after a day out in the cold
Inviting friends over to share a meal
Good clothes that fit
Not having to answer anyone
Talking to friends and relatives on the phone late at night
Money enough for needs
Freedom of thought n speech
Private personal space
I wouldn’t have listed these things as luxuries. But, watching a friend reveling in all these new found freedoms after walking out of an abusive, controlling marriage after many many years, I am learning to value things which I take for granted.
Simple pleasures, when we think about them, make each day well lived.
And oh yes, we received our first cheque today for some of our embroidered articles. A little leap forward:-))
