“On this Day” Repost – I don’t do Math

I may have mentioned once of twice my favourite FB feature – NO?  Oh, well it is “on this Day” – and on this day in 2014 I wrote the following post.  Strangely enough, today my FB feed has been full of posts of a similar nature; learning to be, living in the moment, being happy.  The Universe does work in mysterious ways – and it pays to pay attention unless you want a kick up the backside.

*****************************

What does it all add up too?
the seconds of my life,
count them off in gratitude,
daughter, sister, mother, wife.

No number can ever tally,
the measure of our worth,
the answer is in living well,
each day upon the earth.

G & T (Gratitude & Thankfulness)

Nope, never drank Gin – or Tonic.  🙂

I read a delightful post today from Kat over at  Dandelion Fuzz about Thankfulness and it has prompted me to do my own.

I am grateful today for:

  • being woken at 6.30pm by my 7 month old grandson, hearing his burbling and seeing his smiling little face as I gave him his bottle.
  • seeing the sun rise – the light was magical
  • being able to share my silliness with my 2 wonderful children, and they don’t get embarrassed by me (or if they do, they don’t admit it!)
  • having a camera, so that I can create photos that I enjoy (and remember those moments for much longer than my brain usually retains things for!)
  • instagram – makes sharing my photos fun, and seeing other peoples amazing photos is fabulous.  It wasn’t so long ago I was not a fan of instagram, I couldn’t see the point of it (and I still don’t understand why you would have a profile full of selfies every second shot, did you forget what you looked like?)
  • my morning latte coffee – the only cup I have each day – it may only be Nescafe, but I enjoy it (I just wish they would bring back the Salted Caramel Latte version, it was super yum)
  • colour – I love it, from the subtle tones to the flagrant flares
