This is a happy post, sometimes it is good to remind ourselves, how lucky we are. Especially during January, when all the excitement of Christmas has finished and here in the UK, we still have a few months of the Winter season to come. It is can be cold, dreary and miserable!
The lovely Michelle at 'Mummy from the heart' has come up with a great idea, and has asked people to write three reasons to be cheerful. This is good timing, so with happiness in my heart, here our my three reason to be cheerful:
1. My Children and Husband are healthy and Happy!
This is truly never to be taken for granted, I treasure the above every day and I never take it for granted.I know of many people, who have suffered, or lost someone, or who are going through there own personal pain, that I am very grateful for the health and happiness of my dear,cherished family.
2. We have Good neighbours
No truly, this make me me very cheerful. I am not sure why, but ever since I have known my Husband, we have had the most awful neighbours. The first neighbours we ever had, used to bicker and slam doors, the second neighbours we had, used to play loud music every night till 1am in the morning (even though they had children) the third lot of neighbours we had, unfortunately liked far to many pints and used to keep us up when he wandered back from the pub in the evening most nights.Our current neighbour's, are just great! they are lovely people and similar to us-happy and living a family life. I am so grateful of this every day.
This makes me cheerful. I love puddings and I could eat them every day of the week, if I could! Chocolate pudding, meringues and cream, bread and butter pudding, vanilla ice cream, chocolate cheesecake...the list could go on. Tonight we are having fresh fruit and ice cream yum yum! (yogurt for me, January diet!)Bless the person, who discovered puddings.
So, just a quick list of my three reasons to be cheerful. Sometimes it is good to remind ourselves of all the things we have! This is one of my favourite quotes and sums it up nicely
'Life is not about things, it is about Us'
Love this quote. Have a lovely weekend!
