Happy Wensfriesday everyone!
The best feeling waking up this morning was having no regrets. Much contemplation and reminiscing was done this morning over brushing my teeth and the conclusion reached was…I am happy. Nothing is ever perfect in life and yes, we are given challenges that are sometimes too hard to overcome.
With that in mind, I took a good look at myself and counted my blessings. The simplest of things can give the most blessings; a friend reconnecting, a stranger becoming a wonderful friend, the view on my drive back from dropping everyone off to work and school – the simple things.

I don’t own a lot. I’m not rich. As a wife, mother, sister, child, I have been tempted to throw in the towel many times and run off into the sunset to join a sect and become one with nature! The blessings that trickle into my life everyday stop me and slap me back to reality that life is good. I don’t like comparing myself to others because I would never measure up. But from my short height, I’m happy where I am.
I hope you’ll join me in counting your blessings today. Simple things like your favourite drink in the fridge or a hidden chocolate in the cupboard. The fact that the kids don’t have to stay late or be picked up early. The reason you have a smile on your face everyday. If you can’t find the blessings, then let me give you one – you are my blessing for reading this and sharing a moment in my life with me.
Soppiness over, bring out the sweets, crisps and lashings of Coke! Let’s celebrate me getting older and hopefully wiser! Woohoo!
