Throughout 2016 I will be posting a photo on Instagram each day, sharing something that I am grateful for each day as part of my #366daysofgratitude project. Here are the things I have been grateful for this week:
Day 248 – I am thankful for thoughtful gifts. This pretty cardigan with lots of hearts on it was made for Jessica by my lovely friend Glenis while I was still pregnant with her. Five years on, it now fits her and she looks beautiful in it. Thank you Glenis x
Day 249 – I am grateful for being able to experience Jessica’s first day at school. It might have been an emotional morning for me but I know that five years ago I could never have dreamed that we’d have this moment. My beautiful big girl was so excited to be going to big school. I sent her in with a smile, but the tea and tissues at the children’s centre were welcomed afterwards!
Day 250 – I am grateful for a little extra time with my beautiful birthday girl this morning as we had a hospital check-up (which was all fine) before she went to school. Can’t believe she is 5 already!
Day 251 – I am grateful for some one-to-one time with my big girl before school and before her sister wakes up playing together with one of her birthday presents – love Playmobil!
Day 252 – I am grateful for the start of a new day.
Day 253 – I am grateful for one-to-one time with this gorgeous girlie.
Day 254 – I am grateful for a roof over my head, food on the table and a safe place to live in. We’ve been taking part in a community fundraising day and donating clothes for those in refugee camps. Some of the old clothes that aren’t going to the refugees have been used to make scarecrows. This is the scarecrow we made – Jessica has named her Lily.
