Gratitude means feeling like the luckiest woman in the world, and humbly saying thank you for:
Slow-cooked dinner as soon as we walk in the door
Warm, clean, safe home to sleep in
Noisy, cheery tropical bird dawn chorus
Tangerine sorbet skies behind palm trees out of the bedroom window
Talking; listening; looking; holding. Resting. Remembering why we’re doing this.
Farmer’s Market fresh organic food, and bumping into friends
A Swing Dance lesson on the sand
Painting a teenager’s bedroom walls white as a surprise for when he comes back from his Dad’s
Tasty snacks and peppermint tea
Talking; listening; looking; holding. Resting. Remembering why.
Quiet times: you do your thing, I’ll do mine
Cat cuddles. Cat meows. Cat cuteness.
And my favourite? Siestas in the soft winter sun
