So, I haven't been here enough to practice my calm, loving, grateful ways. And I'd like to pretend that that hasn't affected my approach to my life, but honestly it probably has. I'm not sure.
But I am incredibly grateful for many things at the moment...
My eversoamazing pooch, and her adaptability.
My gorgeous son; his pretending to be high maintainance whilst taking on the transtition to a new school next year; his hilarious playing with Alice (who doesn't like tickling a 2yr old at will); his willingness to just sit and draw or thumb through a book/read when he needs to calm down.
My adorable daughter; her beautiful personality; her easy going attitude and friendliness; her ability to speak, quite clearly, for her age.
My partner; for his ability to work away; his love for his children; his way of approaching chores until they're done perfectly.
As we head in to the holiday season, I'm trying to log on here every couple of days to celebrate gratitude, love and peacefulness in the home. Especially when 'tis the season for stress, topsy-turvyness of plans, and funds that run extraordinarily low. A little bit of yelling out loud about what I have to be thankful for will be a dose of what is needed here daily!
