For the last two years, I have taken part in a daily gratitude challenge – sharing one photo a day on Instagram of something I am grateful for. It’s taught me to look for the little things and has made me a more positive person. Even on the difficult days, I have managed to find something that I can be thankful for. It’s now become such a positive part of my life that I’ve decided to keep going for a third year. To find something in every day that I am thankful for, no matter how small. These weekly summaries have become a lovely way of looking back across the week, and a reminder that I have so much to be thankful for. These are the things that I have been thankful this week:
Day 21 – I am grateful for shoeboxes and cardboard. The girls had fun this afternoon working together and starting to make a shoebox house.
Day 22 – I am grateful for the worksheets and books from Jessica’s school that are helping me home-school her for a little while as she recovers from her surgery.
Day 23 – I am grateful to have hubby home again after a few days with him working in Paris.
Day 24 – I am grateful for welly boots and puddles.
Day 25 – I am grateful for a good check up at the eye hospital for Jessica. We’ve now been discharged from the hospital and can see the optician instead from now on.
Day 26 – I am grateful for my laptop especially with my desktop computer currently out of action!
Day 27 – I am grateful for an opportunity to get out for a family walk – our first one since Jessica’s op. It’s a month today since she went in and I’m still amazed by how quickly we got home again – it’s been two weeks now and she’s doing so well.
