30 days of gratitude – day 2

Spread the love

So, if you know me, at all, and you are reading this, you may wonder what is going on, because generally I don’t do “gratitude” challenges. I’m cynical, sarcastic, grumpy (and that varies depending on my caffeine levels) and I’ve proclaimed such things “annoying & cheesy” before. But, you know what, even the hardest of hearts can be changed and persuaded to try new things so here I am, giving it a go. I’m joining the lovely Bump & Blush to share with you all, dear readers, something I’m grateful for, each day. Some things in my life recently have made me think that actually showing more gratitude isn’t a bad thing. So here goes…

Today is day 2 and it’s “the loves of my life”… 

My children. They squabble like cats & dogs but they adore each other in between. Some days they drive me slightly crazy but I’m always proud of them. We have a saying “always remember, Mum loves you, no matter what”. I’ve said it to them since before they could talk. 

I might be perpetually sleep deprived but it’s worth it…

My husband. We’ve been friends then together for almost 20 years. Otherwise known as the Long Suffering Husband. He puts up with the crazy life we lead, keeps me sane, supports me and us and he’s the best father to our children I could have asked for…He looks less tired than me, not sure how he manages that! I’m very grateful for him.

Also, my Dad, who is a great Dad and grandad and who has supported us particularly through the sleep issues we’ve had. I’m very grateful. We miss him when he’s away. 

And he’ll kill me for this photo but I couldn’t resist! 

And of course, my furry loved ones, because life wouldn’t be entirely complete without the menagerie…

My fur babies. Grumpy, weird, naughty, but loved…

The people most important to me. A good reason to show gratitude…

See you tomorrow…
