#365daysofgratitude 2018 – Week 4

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.

  1. So lovely to see Jessica’s progress this month Louise. Great that she has been discharged from the eye hospital too, we are hoping for the same for Libby over the next 12 months.
