Day 316, 317, 318

The last three days of gratefulness centre around the heat because it’s been up around 35 degrees for most of this week. Current temp as I type this is 38. So swimming at all hours and piña coladas, also at all hours, is the only way to go. 

Grateful for pools and inventors of yummy cocktails 🙂 

Day 315

As our uni semesters finish for the year, I’m so grateful for my live in study buddy/tech support/encourager who has definitely made my foray into student life easier and fun 😊 

Thank you Charli-girl, you rock this uni thing and I’m so proud of you! ❤️

Day 312

Grow where you’re planted. This little guy called Basil popped up in a nearby pot after I pulled the remains of the dead shallots out. 

Lesson: even if it feel like you’ve been put in the wrong circumstances, grow. Even if it feels like your existence is an accident, grow. Even if there’s no one else around who’s anything like you, grow. Fight for your spot in the world. The Giver of all life sees you, planted you right where you are and gives you all you need to thrive. So grow! 

Grateful for assurance of divine purpose and reason for being. 

Day 310 & 311

On Saturday I was blessed to spend another day serving and listening to carers – the true unsung heroes of this world. I will never not be grateful for this privilege. 

Yesterday, we had lunch and whiled away an afternoon with two of our favourite people. Two of the strongest, wisest, kindest people I’ll ever have the blessing to know. Sometimes I can’t quite believe how many extraordinary people are in my life. 

Day 306

After a full work day, the smell of cinnamon muffins being baked was the perfect motivation to hurry up and finish so I could enjoy a sweet treat hot out of the oven with a perfectly brewed cup of tea, all thanks to a study-procrastinating uni student daughter ❤️😊
