I am joining in with Taryn for her heartfelt Sunday tradition.

A time to slow down., to reflect, to be grateful.

This week I have been grateful for......

...the kindness of strangers helping me when laden with shopping and trying to hold children's hands!

...a morning cup of tea in bed.

...my children smiling at me each morning when they wake, a beautiful start to the day.

...my friends who welcome me into their homes and feed me with wonderful food for lunch.

...my comfortable bed after a long day on my feet on Saturday.

...my eldest taking his sister's hand when they had to leave me again, and go off with their dad, he sensed she needed comfort.

...the heartfelt thanks after cooking for forty five people for the weekend.

...being able to enjoy a gorgeous sunrise.


  1. what a beautiful list. i love when my older children are there for their younger siblings.

  2. Love you list ! It warms my heart always when strangers are helpers ... Unfortunately it is so rare ... Wow, cooking for 45 people, what courage ! :)

    1. I was a bit apprehensive that I would have enough food, there was plenty at every meal and most plates were empty!

  3. Reading about the help from strangers really warmed my heart. :)



Hello......would love to hear from you :)
