When I'm at home looking outside to my garden I'm quite happy with what I see. Maybe at one point in my life I did want to live in a big(ger) house with some land where I could keep some pigs and chickens and sometimes I still do, but I am really happy with my home and garden with all the critters that live in it. There are so many birds in my garden and now even mice, I know not for everyone but I like them, they're cute. In a few weeks the toads will come again and the snails, the butterflies and bees and the gang will be complete.
So I've decided I'm going to make a list (if not in writing then in my head) every day about things I'm grateful for; not in any specific order.
- The animals in my garden and in my house (my dog and bird)
my dog is getting old and has dragged me through many a thing where I was in tears over.
- My health
Even if you’re health isn’t great, it could be worse and you likely still have some working parts to be thankful for.
- My mum who is so energetic and has found a new love after being a widow for 12 years. Even though I found it hard at first, dad is gone for so long now and she is so much in love. :)
It's turning into Spring again surely but slowly and the flowers are showing their faces again!
- My two boys.
Yes they can get under my skin at times, yes they are a lot of work especially now at this age, but I wouldn't want to miss them!
- My hub.
Of course it is sometimes hard with his autism, the grumbling
But I'm grateful that he's in my life!
I like my job, it's fulfilling and I have enough free time left to do the things I love doing, like writing and editing pics.
What would I do without them? Books are life! I couldn't live without them!
- My sis! I'm so grateful to have a sis like her! You wouldn't have thought it but we weren't always this close. As kids we could fight like all kids do. But now I think she's my best friend! I love her dearly! I couldn't imagine my life without her.
We go on trips together, I visit her frequently and we send each other postcards because we live 60 km from each other. End of April we even go to Edinburgh together! My favourite city!
I am really proud of her as well.
