Gifted moments


Me he dado cuenta que hay regalos que se aprecian mejor y se recuerdan más intensamente con el tiempo. A mí me regalaron el día de mi cumpleaños un paseo en moto. Unos minutos dejándome llevar, notando el aire, el paisaje, el tráfico, la gente fugaz. Sin palabras, sin necesidad más que de disfrutar. Quizá me conforme con poco, pero creo que me conformo con lo mejor.

I've realized there are gifts that you learn to appreciatte better and remember more passionately after a little while. On my birthday I was given a motorbike ride. Some minutes letting myself be carried, noticing the air, the view, the traffic, the fleeting people. Wordless, no reason to do anything but enjoy. Maybe you think I make do with little or that I'm easy to satisfy, but I can say again I'm satisfied with the little things in life.

¿y el viaje? ¿y la suscripción a MSF?
Me hace usted parecer el marido más roña del mundo. ¿40 años? Paseo en moto y pa casa

What about the trip? And the MSF subscription?
You make me feel like Mr Scrooge.
40 years? a short drive and let´s go back home

husband just spoiled it, ha, ha... I was thinking of posting my birthday gifts little by little, layer by layer... day by day... ha, ha...

¡Felicidades! Es un regalo genial, ir sentada ahí atrás abrazada a tu husband, con el pelo al viento (o mejor con casco, vamos a ser prudentes)... Ya nos desvelarás lo qué es la suscripción a MSF, estoy intrigada.
Muchos besos.

Ya estaban todas flipando con un marido tan romántico y llega el husband con su mente analítica y lo estropea todo, jajaj...

esti, que quieres que te diga, me ha encantado lo que has escrito, pero creo que me quedo con el "coloquio" de la seccion de comentarios. entre jorge, husband y tu me he hecho unas peliculas... empezando por easy rider claro. vaya risas.

i think little things are the most difficult to appreciate because they slip by so quickly and so easily. but when you really do genuinely appreciate those moments, they're the most rewarding of all.

p.s. your husband is funny.

outi said...

little things make life forth living!
and those feelings what you described are actually big things.

I think the little things are the best things in life, and to appreciate them and acknowledge them is the key to everyday happiness...
