I’ve discovered “our spot”. A simple bench at the park, canopied by old trees, where the shade and the perfect breeze keeps us cool on a hot day. We always seem to be there at 12:30 so Lucy eats her lunch, sometimes sitting beside me, but usually running off to talk to another kid or try run up the slide. It’s guaranteed to be peaceful, no matter how stressed the day has been. And that’s always a good thing.
