Thankful.

Hi Folks.

I am thankful for the life I live and the friends I have a round me.

I am lucky enough to have many small joys in my life, and you may be blessed with them also.

With the joy of the Menopause an unbroken nights sleep is one of them.

Waking to hearing rain dancing on the roof and knowing I am snug in my bed is another.

The warmth still felt in the boat, because the stove did not go out. Always brings a smile to my face first thing.

Once up and about a walk with our collie dog, who is showing his age, but can still muster some energy to chase a ball. He is not a well boy and goes a bit lame in his right leg, but no sooner it is there, it passes.

The dawn sun breaks over the arm and shines on the winding hole annoucing that another morning has begun.

The Mandarin Ducks come calling for their breakfast, brings me great joy because I know they are still with us (We have lost three)

I know and relish the fact that Spring is coming with the rasping sound of the Wren who has over wintered nearby and the call of the Robin who is hoping I will put food on the bird table.

With the sound of Spring around the corner the dreary winter is coming to an end. It’s drenched us, and depressed us, and brought illness and enmity. But it cannot last much longer, and it seems to be on the way out.

So, here’s to the coming Spring! Raise your glass to the Wolf Moon tonight, and face the adventures it offers with courage and hope. Look to the future and forget the past, because we are all blessed with joys in our lives. All these things make me thankful.

  1. I'm not sure if my first comment actually sent so I hope this second attempt is more successful.
    I just wanted to say what a delightful post this us Jo.
    Such truths but how often do we remember to stop and acknowledge in the way you have done today.
    Thank you - it's already made my tomorrow a happier day.
