How Do I Love Thee?

It has been a bit of a hard month, so some gratitude won't go amiss today. 

Eight years ago today, we got engaged. Every day, I am grateful for our love, our life together and our baby.

Purls of Love

The other day the owner of daycare asked if I could find a bit of spare time to knit a couple of beanies for the kids that come to school without hats on these chilly winter days (for a range of reasons, but a number of them just don't have enough warm clothes.) There are a lot of children in that class. I don't knit very fast, nor do I have heaps of knitting time, but I am keen to do what I can though.

So I asked on my FB knitting page and a number of people have come back and volunteered to do hats for the children - some are doing socks and slippers too!

I am humbled by the generosity of these gorgeous knitters I have never met... I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it.

I Wore A Yellow Dress Today

Because you are bound to have a good day in such a happy colour. 

Not so today. 

Days like today are most important to practise gratitude. 

1. A wonderful, wonderful co-worker turning around (while driving home) after I rang him to come help me change my flat tire. 

2. An equally as wonderful co-worker seeing me at the side of the road and stopping to see if I was okay and jumping in to start changing my tire (he even got his pants dirty.)

3. My baby, who was delerious with joy to see me when I finally made it to daycare to get her. 

4. My students giving me hugs when they came in today and telling me that they missed me. 

5. A beautiful sunrise and the hint of a rainbow. 

It was a hard day... But I still have so much to be thankful for. Things do happen for a reason...

Take A Photo, Mummy!

Today I am so grateful for those words. I worked from home today and managed to finish all my report cards!

So I bundled up walked to daycare to get Miss Two. As we walked home, she kept stopping to admire different things and saying, "Take a photo, Mummy!"

The first photo - of the clouds she thought were beautiful. 

A photo of the moon. She gets very excited when she sees the moon, especially in the daytime. 

"I love it, Mummy! I love the clouds!"

Thank you for reminding me to take my time and admire the moon and clouds, baby. I am so lucky to have you.
