Sunday {Gratitude Week 2015}

024 - Copy

First of all I would like to say a heartfelt thanks to Michelle for making this week possible x

Today I am grateful for…

…the power of gratitude and how the littlest thing can make a bad day good.

…my son, for the person he is becoming, for the fact he has a voice {and style} of his own. For the way he procrastinates over his art homework, but does it eventually {and does it well}. For all he is and the love he gives…I am so very grateful.

…quiet Sundays.

…the need to carry on this practice.

…knowing that life isn’t perfect and doesn’t have to be to make you happy {darkness is always followed by light, this I know}.

Grateful today for…

…for every breath I take, for life, for love, for the beauty this world still holds {we must not forget this}.

Lighting a candle for…

…a country in mourning, for all of humanity, for peace {please, for PEACE}.

Friday {Gratitude Week 2015}

001

Today I am grateful for…

…being at home {I don’t work Fridays and I love it}.

…rainbows {they never cease to fascinate me}.

…new opportunities that present themselves unexpectedly.

…weekends and the chance to relax.

…the healing power of time and the ability eventually to talk about a loved one lost and not feel like crying.

Sharing gratitude for seven days as part of Gratitude Week 2015 with Michelle. Can it really be Friday, only two more days? I will miss this, but intend to carry on privately as it has done me so much good to check in with myself everyday and really look at what I have and be thankful.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend x

Thursday {Gratitude Week 2015}

003

Grateful today for…

…flowers in the garden that keep on growing {and delighting me} even though it’s November.

…for the cold beer I am drinking right now after a long day at work.

…for the big hug I will get from my son before he goes to bed.

…for my warm bed and soft pillows {cannot wait to get there tonight}

…for people’s comments here on my blog and for new connections {THANK YOU}.

Night folks, sleep well xx

Tuesday {Gratitude Week 2015}

020

Today, I am grateful for…

…my son’s company every morning {and ALWAYS} and for the way he makes me laugh {a lot}.

…our lovely dog, Trevor, who is forever happy to see us {he is such a people pup}, always willing to entertain and oh so affectionate.

…coffee with a splosh {or two} of double cream {not sure my waistline would agree!}

Grateful also, to be a part of Michelle’s beautiful week.

So grateful for…

…a weekend spent with good people including lots of laughter and lovely food {balm for the soul}.

…that first cuppa, without which I am useless and a little grumpy {especially on a dark, wet Monday morning}.

…our warm, cosy home and the way it welcomes me, like an old friend, when I return from work.

…being a part of this lovely week. Thank you Michelle xx
