“There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it.” – Charlotte Eriksson
Sitting in a room for a week, I finally had the strength to draw the curtains. I was amazed to look outside my window. Lying on the bed for a week with high temperature, aching body and a splitting headache, the view outside my window was rather welcoming.
It had rained constantly the whole week, so all I heard were the thunderstorms, pitter-patter raindrops and the ghostly winds. The viral had taken over me and my senses. It had cast such a spell that I didn’t want to leave my bed and blanket. I literally ignored all the house chores and did not even send my daughter to school. My husband was there right at my side to take care of me. What more even, my 6-year-old nursed me and took complete charge of my medicines.
But yes, today, when after a week, I drew the curtains I was pretty amazed to see the view outside my window. Since it had rained constantly, the fields were no more yellow and dusty, they were green. There were little ponds everywhere and the clouds were flying low as if they had come over to say, “Hello, where have you been all these days”? The distant buildings covered in fog looked rather appealing today. Also, the sky had its own hues with everchanging colours and clouds busy flying from one end to the other.
Did, I miss this for a week? Yes, I missed this view. And today as I sit with a hot cup of coffee in my hand I am trying to soak up each and everything … the marvellous and the beautiful things which I missed for the past one week.
This was what I was greeted to today when I looked outside my window:
I was supposed to write this post for the Blog Hop and which was spread over 3 days – 2, 3, 4 August. Since I missed the deadline and today I felt energetic, I penned down my words for the same. #WordsMatter Blog Hop
