1000 graces from God No 5- 8

5. Rain - We've been having a lot of rain so far this Autumn.  I am not complaining at all really considering the very dry Winter we have had, this is a wonderful blessing even if it means we stay in.
6. Family - Met up with my cousin yesterday.  We sometimes don't meet for years even if we live jsut 15 mins by car away.  it was great seeing him and spending time with him and his wife.  Also grateful to still have 2 grandparents alive whom I can visit often. My nanna is wonderful and wouldn't change her in the whole world!
7. Health - Been very tired but I am healthy so I remind myself of that so as to stop myself from complaining!
8. Tantrums - The terrible 2s at 20 months---bring it on! I might feel overwhelmed, defeated, worried and insecure but my little man shows me he's got a will and he will use it at every possible moment to try and get his wants.  Isn't that wonderful knowing that?


It is not an easy time at our house right now.  However, when I write here or in my journal something always triggers me to remember something else which in turn helps me in these trying times.  Maybe I hardly see any progress but I know that one day we will get there.

I like your kind of post Melissa, 1000 graces from God...you wouldn't mind if I'd follow suit?

It is really more than a thousand to thank God, but great for you to have started it now... ;-)

Loving your attitude and perception on this because that's all it is - a choice of focusing on the negative or positive. I love your positivity and find it so uplifting. It's the weekend soon and I know you were looking forward to that, so have a wonderful time!

I love your glass half full attitude; go go girl!
