Here is my daughter with her great-grandmother, Dorothy. I'm so grateful that my kids get to spend time with their parents, grand-parents and great grand-parents. I never knew my great grand-parents and I do miss not having memories of them to share.
I love these garden stakes. The patina changes on them all the time, and they move around as the earth moves - never in the same position. I love that they say love too. My favourite feeling, and I'm grateful I'm surrounded by so much of it.
I'm grateful we had the opportunity to celebrate Christmas with others in our neighbourhood. I'm also grateful that we thought ahead and brought our own candles. We were the only ones there with real ones, and our little corner glowed brightly!
I'm grateful for the opportunity to mingle with the stars, at my office Christmas party last night. Kirk Pengilly (INXS) was at the table next to ours and after dinner, entertained us with a few tunes!
An 8 year old's dream came true today, when my friend Michael transformed my son's sketch into his very own cartoon super-hero. He's over the moon, and I'm grateful that Michael took the time to create this little masterpiece!
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." - Melody Beattie
I'm on the gratitude bandwagon. This was going to be my project for 2012, but why wait? Gratitude is something that we should embrace as a part of our daily lives, and this blog is my little way of showing you the things I'm thankful for.
I hope it inspires you to look at what you could be grateful for too.
