So yes, Sunday does eventually lead to Monday and all the hard work of preparation and sock folding pays off as we get to start out week with some semblance of organisation.
Monday and Tuesdays are work days for me so I generally just focus on getting stuff done, hanging out with my kids at the end of the day, frantically tidying mess and reading bed time stories.
Occasionally life does not go according to plan though and this my friends, is why I look as old as I do.
Oh well. Sigh.
I am grateful for my strength and health and my ability to get up and go to work. This is something that is easy to take for granted but I learned early on in my life that good health can be swept away in an instant. There are no guarantees so enjoy each day and never harshly judge a beautiful and hard working body.
Each wrinkle and grey hair tells a story and I have some good stories to tell.
I am also grateful today for my lovely tweenager. Our kids keep us confused and ever-striving don’t they? But gee it is valuable to stop and appreciate the moments that they do something great. Today my girl made a cake, thus rescuing her little brother from a bag of popcorn as his shared morning tea at a class party tomorrow. How ace are daughters?
She just got up and made it, all on her own, in order to be kind to her brother.
The third thing I am grateful for today is snacks. Yes I said it. I am grateful for excellent snacks. Don’t judge.
Truthfully, I love a good snack for supper. Biscuits, chips, crackers, chocolate bars, sweet gooey tubs of decadent ice-cream, I love them all.
Current favourites include the chunky Kit Kat and a snack sized packet or Red Rock Deli chips. More decadent evenings have included Nutella donuts from my local Italian restaurant.
When it comes to snacky treats, unlike the rest of my diet, I am not that fussy.
What sweet bliss is it to sit down to a quiet moment on your own at the end of a busy day and eat a little something delicious. I know I learned this little habit from my Mum, and long live the tradition say I.
So, What are you grateful for today?
Strong bodies, kind daughters, sweet snacks or something a little more serious?
I’d love to hear your list so feel free to join my 31 days of gratitude challenge.
