Day 102 to 114 of 365 Days of Gratitude

Day 102 to 114 of 365 Days of Gratitude

Is the world spinning faster, or is it just me? We’re up to the 114th day of the year already. I only have 62 more days until the launch of The Zanzibar Moon. Do you have something you need to have done in two months time? Are you on schedule for what you need to do? I’ve added a countdown to the bottom of this blog to keep reminding me of the days. It’s not that long but there is enough time. In the meanwhile I’ll continue being grateful.

Day 102 I am grateful for:

Easter coming and having one extra day off tomorrow, because our family in Brisbane need us to babysit, which is a joy not a chore. Family love.

Day 103 I am grateful for:

My adorable grandchildren Larabella and Kru, because they are growing into little people who smile and giggle and keep my heart full. Larabella is crafty and we coloured in a ceramic mug (I took it home with me). We coloured Easter Bunny pictures and for a three-year old she keeps in the lines well. She might take after her GG (Great-Grandma) and be a painter. Kru was such a good baby and is a snuggle buggle. We are so blessed.

Day 104 I am grateful for:

Watching the joy on Larabella’s face as she did her Easter egg hunt, because the childlike wonder that the bunny actually came (she left out a carrot) is priceless.

All the Easter traffic was going south yesterday but there’s not so much today, because after our visit with our little family in Brisbane it’s nice that we don’t have to deal with traffic to get home.

Day 105 I am grateful for:

Beautiful Autumn weather that feels more like Spring, because isn’t it always raining at Easter, especially if you go camping?

Day 106 I am grateful for:

Chocolate, because it’s Easter and though we don’t celebrate it much anymore it’s an excuse to eat some chocolate (we had the tiny Lindt Lindor Eggs – yummo)

Day 107 I am grateful for:

A long weekend, because it’s a long weekend (no more explanation needed).

Day 108 I am grateful for:

My mum calling into my work for a visit, because she is loving, supportive, resilient, generous and adorable (I’m so proud she is my mum).

Day 109 I am grateful for:

Arriving home to Mahli’s excited barking (talking), because her unbridled excitement shows how much I mean to her in her doggy world.

Day 110 I am grateful for:

Writing time before work, because I love writing.

Day 111 I am grateful for:

A heavy upper-body boot-camp session, because though I’m a little weak, the more I do this the stronger I will be. I have to admit that it was tough, especially the farmer’s carries up and down the stairs (24kg). Tough but fun (kind of)!

Day 112 I am grateful for:

Catching up with good friends at Winder’s Park Currumbin, because I love enjoying Currumbin Creek on a beautiful sunny day.

Day 113 I am grateful for:

Final details for my book launch are coming together, because I spoke to my good friend Sue (who has kindly offered to hold the event) and we agreed on everything we need. I’m getting excited about the launch of The Zanzibar Moon on Saturday 24th June 2017.

Day 114 I am grateful for:

Knowing that everything is going to plan and relying on The Universe for the rest, because I have belief in my destiny as a writer.

Make gratitude a fun part of each day.
