Pink Cyclamen

In a week that has both managed to beat me and at the same time whoosh by, I have been quietly grateful for many things, not least a wonderful daily email from Michelle and of course her beautiful daily blog posts as part of Gratitude Week 2014.

I won’t lie, on a couple of occasions it has been hard to feel grateful this week (which is very unlike me). However, in the midst of a what felt like wading through treacle (we all have weeks like this!) there is always something…my son’s never ending cheerfulness, my husband’s ability to laugh through pain, my own ability to tell myself to get a grip and of course the love of dear friends.

Even though I feel like I let this week win, there was still some good in every day…thanks Michelle for reminding me and for making my week a better one x
