In today's society we all have such busy lives it's often hard to feel grateful for things. We tend to whinge a lot so it's important to take a moment to think about all the great things we have to feel grateful for!!
I'm starting with my family.
These kids drive me batty but I love them to the moon and back!
I often take my hubby for granted, but truth be known I couldn't do it without him. We tend to get grumpy with each other at times, but I'm so grateful for everything he does to help out. I know not all women have husbands who cook dinner and help out so much with the kids. He is happy to look after the kids so I can go to the gym at night (even though I've only just got home from work).
My sister - just this week she made me a cake for my birthday and came on the color run with me! Next weekend we are off to Melbourne together. She is always there for me.
My parents - despite them both still working and having busy lives of their own, they help out with the kids a lot. They pick them up from kindy/school on Thursdays, look after them when needed (e.g. Mum came around today and took Hunter to the footy so I could go on the color run).
I'm grateful for my sister in law who is coming down from the country 3 times over the next couple of weeks to help out with the kids whilst my husband has surgery and recovery.
I'm grateful that I have a job. At the moment the train line is out (until September) so I whinge and whine about the buses! But I'm grateful I have a job to go to so need to catch the buses, and that my Manager is flexible if I'm a little late.
I'm grateful I have a home. Again I whinge about finances, but really, I'm grateful that we can afford our own home.
I'm grateful I've made friends with some of the Mums of the kids friends - nice for coffee catch ups and we help each other out with pick ups when needed.
Yes, I have lots to be grateful for!!
