Day 20 and 21 of 365 Days of Gratitude

Day 20 and 21 of 365 Days of Gratitude

The wonderful thing about this gratitude challenge is how easy it is. Maybe it’s because, there are good things going on in my life. Perhaps the challenge itself brings out positivity.

Friendship quotes

Day 20 I am grateful for:

A visit from a friendly Blue Tongue Lizard, because if I hadn’t of taken him out of the linen closet Mahli (our dog) would have found him.

Blue Tongue Lizard Australia ZooWe regularly have Blue Tongues in our house and I’m not sure why. We have a dog so you’d think that would deter them. I guess the cat across the road would be more of a problem than our dog. Blue Tongues burrow or hide under leaves of a night in the wild so maybe the closet felt safe (ah, not with a 20kg dog outside the door). They usually hiss when threatened but when I picked him up at his back legs his head swung around at me but he wasn’t aggressive.

Day 21 I am grateful for:

Wonderful friendships that have lasted more than three decades, because it’s one of my best friend’s birthday today. Happy Birthday Angie.

We went to school together and our friendship grew after we left school. We’ve shared so much like:

  • A big circle of friends
  • A party house at Kirra with other fun-time girls
  • Our first overseas trip (Bali when we were 18)
  • The same style car – VW Beetles
  • A quirky sense of humour
  • Work ethic
  • Values
  • Caring about our environment and health
  • and much more to come

I’m also grateful for all my other long friendships, reconnections, new friendships – all the people who fill my life with support, kindness, compassion, camaraderie, motivation, encouragement and love. Thank you.
