Thankful for...

  • Long conversations.
  • Pretend camping with Nola under covers.
  • Hiking up the hill and through the wood with Tani, Sylvie dog and a thermos of Red-bush tea.
  • Knitting simple, therapeutic garter stitch squares.
  • Boo's hand-sewn dragon-wings.
  • A little owl roosting on our garden wall.
  • Girls' making teeny tiny sandwiches with crusts cut off  for the garden fairies.
  • Getting to spend time with my eldest girl now college is out for Summer.
  • Quiet, rainy Sunday morning for writing, reading, cups of tea while children sleep.
  • A new outdoor table and chair set. Looking forward to warm, lantern lit Summer evenings eating al fresco.
  • Feeling so much better after months of one illness after another.
  • Cornfields dotted with Poppies.

  1. We all have so much to be for which to be grateful!! Have a wonderful day!

  2. Yesterday my daughter was in a bit of a state of collapse in town, so we took a taxi home instead of the bus. The taxi driver was very kind, and said, "Have you had enough darling?" to her. I asked him how his day was going and he said, "FanTAStic. Every day that I wake up and my elbows aren't touching wood is a great day!" It made me wonder whether he had had some experience that made him particularly savour being alive, and it was a great reminder that we should all take that approach.
    I really liked your post on affirmations; re. the one on your ambivalent feelings about your girls being in school, I think that they will still receive far more input from you in their lives than most of their contemporaries. Don't worry!

    1. Isn't it lovely when a stranger shows such kindness :) He sounds like quite an inspiration! I hope your lovely daughter is feeling better today. Thank you so much for your kind comments about the girls and school :)

  3. A nice long list of gratitude...probably more deeply enable by the wonderful 2nd to last entry!


I treasure each and every one of your comments.
Your kind words never fail to bring a smile to my face:)
At the moment I am going through a busy season of life with 5 girls under my wing! I may not always be able to respond immediately but please know that every word left here is read and appreciated deeply.
