I read this chicken soup story yesterday and found it very appealing. There are 2 things that touched me.
One – The comparison of the pre technology age and now. I sometimes feel that we (mostly I) crib about the small things but forget how much good we really have and how blessed we actually are. This actually also hit me hard when I saw the movie – Manjhi. The line “Is it more difficult than breaking a mountain” is just something I hope I remember, always!
Two – The art of being still and actually doing nothing. Knowing the importance of it, You have to do it to experience it. If you need any help, do visit here.
Well, I am just happy that my husband and I did Porching on saturday. I made tea and told my husband to join me outside the door. I took a newspaper to sit on. I had a silly thought that we could have just sat inside the house but the outside seemed to be calling me and well… we sat on the steps outside and looked at the clouds. We had people who kept coming to do their laundry and we said hi and wished them a good day. 😀
My husband said that we could buy 2 chairs and keep them outside and do this often and I realized that he liked it. Chairs or no chairs, A newspaper worked just fine and … it felt good to do it. So, go ahead! do some porching and let me know how you feel. 😀
