Yesterday was not the best day in the world and when I have one of those days I try to reflect back on it moment by moment to remember all the times in the day that I was blessed. This is a simple list of all the reasons I had to be cheerful yesterday -
- I woke up after a good, sound nights sleep which had started with a wonderful cuddle with my hubbie
- I got to stay in bed and read my bible alone while the kids behaved and played
- I enjoyed my porridge for breakfast and the kids ate all theirs up
- I wrote a blog post that had been brewing for a while
- I went swimming for a couple of hours with the kids and we had fun
- I caught the sun while swimming and now have a nice glow (well OK bit of sunburn!)
- I got to sit down in the park for an hour with a load of Mummy friends while the kids all played
- I wrote a letter from the heart that I really needed to write and had the guts to send it
- Dinner was yummy, served on time and dh cleared it all up
- Miss E and I spent 45 mins on our own before bed having girl time
- I spent an enjoyable hour alone, doing nails, defluffing that sort of thing!
- I chilled with a cuppa & my hubbie and watched some trashy TV
- Then finished the night with 1/2 hour reading my book
Sounds terrible doesn't it? Of course I missed out the rubbish stuff that went on but when you focus on just the positives you are reminded just how blessed you really are!
|Another reason to be cheerful - a fab day out at Whipsnade with great friends on Saturday|
