Thanksgiving is a US thing. Even when I worked for an American company we were asked what we were doing for Thanksgiving. Well, we’d be at work while they’d have the day off! (Then again a similar discussion would be had around Boxing Day).
Being thankful for what we have is something we should focus on daily not just on special occasions. However, because of the world we live in life can get busy and we forget to “stop and smell the daisies”.
So Things I am Thankful For…
I am thankful that I got this week with my boys. Yes they have driven me crazy, I thought I might freeze to death and I have to share my chocolate. But it was important and lovely to spend time with them both.
I am thankful that I got to attend part of Becca and Dave’s wedding. I would have liked to have been there for the “official” bit but celebrating at the reception was just as lovely.
I am thankful that we have breakdown cover for our car. We have an electric car and normally charge most evenings or every other night depending on what’s going on. However, with us being away the nearest charging point is about 8-10 miles away. On Saturday, poor Zoe surrendered and gave up. We had to call out breakdown assist and they came to our rescue (more to come in my “download” about this week!).
I am thankful for a roof over our heads, heat in the radiator and food in our bellies. Yes, I spent the beginning of the week complaining how cold I was but we had the option to crank up the radiator or throw another log on the fire so I am so grateful for that. I’ve been seeing more and more people sleeping rough and it’s breaking my heart. I am never entirely sure what I can do about it just as me but I love that there are projects out there to help people. Jaxon and I will be heading along to Soupfest in Bedford to support the event that is raising funds for a multi-agency project in Bedford. You can read more here on the Bedford Clanger website and here on Soupfest’s FB page.
I’m sure there are other things to add at some point for now, this is my list.
