I realise I haven't made much of an effort to be Thankful on Thursdays lately. Shame really as it was a time in the week which forced me to have a more positive outlook on our current life. Which is a good thing.
So although Thursday has past. I shall be thankful on a Friday.
A very good and dear friend called me this morning. Just hearing her voice made me shed more than a few tears. I was, thankfully, able to offload (she doesn't mind a bit) many of my fears and some of the icky stuff I've had to deal with this year. What a load off it was. I am so grateful to have her in my life. Love you Simone xx
Next I am thankful that my children can have some normality. A small sleepover with junk food and DVD is scheduled for this evening. It hasn't been a regular event at our house this year. Most of the the social events have taken our children to other people's houses. It is nice to finally host a friend and have some fun. Yay!
And finally. Things are growing.
Parsley, strawberries, spinach, corn and courgette. Just a smattering of veg.
But it is lovely to see anyway. Thankful for the warmer weather arriving and new growth around us.
And these lillies, almost bursting into bloom were from my late Nana's garden. They have been with me at every flat, house and rental we have owned or lived in. South and North Island. I have moved them with me loyally and Nana has never failed to deliver yearly blooms. Lovely huh.
Can't wait for it to happen again soon :-)
Thank goodness for finding these things around me.
We plan to get the kids out on their bikes this weekend.
Have a wonderful weekend yourselves.
