Where are the Joneses?

Sunday mornings

Sunflowers to make you smile

As a child, Sunday mornings were sacred in our house. Without fail, the whole family would gather together and watch Little House on the Prairie. It was a familiar scene with me on the bean bag and mum on the recliner, taking the weight off her gammy leg.

I remember one such morning with lung stinging clarity. Nellie Oleson slipped on a pig at the fair and had a tantrum. Charles Ingalls advised “When life throws you a lemon, Nellie, make some lemonade”. Mum said “Now there’s a lesson to live your life by”. And I have.

But sometimes, only on my darker days mind, I get tired of manufacturing gassy liquids. I don’t always want to roll with the punches, dust myself off and start all over again. Sometimes, I just feel a bit sad.

Love & Light,
