Last week I found a beautiful, simple grateful post over here and felt somewhat embarrassed about my grudgingly grateful (and somewhat whiny) effort.
I decided to "borrow" the idea and watch for grateful opportunities all week.
Saturday : There are daffodils blooming in our garden already. So pretty. No wonder Wordsworth was inspired.
Sunday : The Doc tried a new recipe (from this month's Real Living magazine) for dinner - Chicken Normandy. Totally delicious. Always grateful when I don't have to cook.
Monday : Lily has a new teacher (her first teacher went on long-service leave for 4 weeks and then retired at the end of it so this is the third for the year already). Apparently she is young, funny, great, cool and really smart. I'm so very grateful for a renewed buzz in my little girl.
Tuesday : Grateful for the extra snuggles and cuddles a sick little boy loves to give his mummy
Wednesday : A friend dropped a coffee in when she knew I was stuck at home with a sick little one. And she brought gossip.
Thursday : Very grateful that the Doc was able to move his day around so he could share the care and I could still do my work for the week.
Friday : Another fabulous new recipe (the lentil soup from the same magazine...this month's Real Life is already covered with cooking spatters) shared with my sister visiting from interstate who we don't get to see nearly often enough. Precious time with family and good food...so much to be grateful for.
Are you grateful this week?
