6th Jan 2018

Today folks I'm joining in with the Ten Things of Thankful brigade. If you want to do this too just put it into google and away you go. Then link up to share with the others.
The idea is to look back over the last week and find ten things that you can be thankful for .

So, let's make a start:

1 Firstly I feel so blessed to have a wonderful family - yes, there's a lot of us but I love each and every one enormously and am so very proud of them. 
2 In particular I am thankful for my darling husband of forty five years who is such a treasure . Always there for me or any of our loved ones. 
3 I am thankful that I live by the sea. I went out twice this week for walks with my gorgeous daughter.
4 I am thankful that I got three new writing journals for Christmas - that'll keep me going. 
5 I'm thankful that I got to a writing for wellbeing workshop yesterday - it always inspires me, hence...
6 I am thankful for having some time to myself today - not much, but it was needed and valuable.
7 I'm thankful for that radio programme that I got to enjoy - it was totally unexpected.
8 I am thankful that, although I've put on a few pounds over the Christmas time, I couldstill get into that dress i wanted to wear today - I did wonder if I would. 
9 I'm thankful for the comments that some lovely people have posted on my blog these last few days - it's always so uplifting to know that somebody is reading the rubbish I write.
10 I'm thankful for my friends  - whom I love and must try to see more often 

Well, that just dribbled out .
Now it's your turn.
It does make you think .
It also makes you realise that there are so many things that are good in your life.


  1. Wonderful list of thankfuls. You are blessed to have such a large family.

  2. It’s lovely that you wrote up your list and linked it! Every thankful post makes me smile, i love to see the positivity.

  3. Happy to have you here! It sounds like you have a wonderful family. (And fitting into clothes after Christmas is always a good thing!)

  4. Excellent TToT! (being near an ocean...very cool)

  5. To be close enough to the sea to be able to enjoy it often definitely is a blessing.

    I love those podcasts and radio broadcasts one hears that turn out to be just what was needed that day.

    I'm in a battle with my wardrobe too. What a good feeling it is when I can still wear something that I thought would never see my skin again.

    A writing for wellbeing workshop sounds interesting.
