Yes I Really Am…

…grateful for this week

I’m grateful for a washing pile this big to fold because it signifies gorgeous weather

And that gorgeous weather means I can pull out this dress my nana started for herself and my sister finished and I inherited when she got over it

I’m grateful for prayers answered – my phone back and the jewelry of my grandmother’s I thought stolen left behind (they don’t dig her taste either!) in favour of my son’s piggy bank (trying to replace it before he realises and we have to explain about the burglars) and The Atlas headphones – (in case you’re not up to date we were burgled on Bounce’s birthday)

Grateful for a house full of things I love that are worth nothing to burglars.

Grateful for Bounce having a wonderful start to kindy and for our special birthday date together.

Loving all the people who commented or emailed or phoned or supported us this week. Good people make our lives most precious.

And I’m always grateful (and slightly surprised just quietly) that people read my blog and make comments – nice ones! And I do read them and love them and just to prove it Sammy asked for a close up from my wedding pics post ages ago and here it is:

And I’m super, duper grateful for the most important things in life – relationships – can’t be stolen or broken or discarded or pawned by anyone other than the participants in them.

Yup, it’s been a very, very cool week. Other ‘glass-half-full’ types over here.

The hardest thing I find about this weekely post is that feeling that I’ve left out something else that is great like people who come to birthday parties and particpate with a 3 year old at his level with great enthusiasm even though they are grown-ups and, and, and……
