Aug 13/14 Day trip with LSCO day program. 14 people on a lovely drive to Waterton, one of the greatest treasures in a nation of fabulous national parks. The weather was perfect, the scenery breathtaking, a perfect afternoon at Cameron Lake. And Al loved it, loved the scenery, loved the weather, the company, the walking, the day. "I could live here forever" He was such easy company all day. Just happy to be out, with people, in a wonderful place. Nothing to be anxious about, no chores to do, once we were on the bus it was just a mini holiday. If everyday could be like today....we could do this for a long time yet.
And for the most part, he is easy every day. It is me who is not. Work, chores, commitments - even the ones I want are sometimes just another thing on the list. And so it is my temper that is short, my patience that are strained. Because of course every day cannot be a holiday for me. But today was.
