I’m very thankful to know many lovely folks from the USA. Some are friends from my university years, some are ex-colleagues, some are current co-workers and some are virtual friends I know from blogging.
I’m thankful for them all.
Having had a bit of a writers block lately and felt sorry for myself, I’m particularly grateful for everyone who said lovely supportive things to me.
I’m thankful for my wonderful real life friends who looked after me when I was upset on world prematurity day.
I’m thankful for my boys who make me laugh every day.
I’m thankful for my parents who are always there in the background.
I’m thankful for my colleagues, for their patience and good will, their determination to do the right thing and do it well.
I’m thankful for a warm home and a full fridge.
I’m thankful for a healthy and mostly well-behaved body that does as I ask it.
I’m thankful that I live in a calm and trouble-free country.
I’m thankful that my children have caring and supportive teachers who stretch them and encourage them.
I’m thankful for himself who cooks and organises and plans and does equal parenting and holds me when I need to be held.
I’m thankful for all those things and I’m thankful to you for reading.
(Sorry if that’s a bit trite.)
