One of the non-building blogs I make time for belongs to the delightful Maxabella. She's a little bit quirky, creative and upbeat. But the nicest thing about it is the regular Saturday post, "this week I'm grateful for...". I can raise my hand as guilty when it comes to rushing through life and not celebrating little successes and not always acknowledging those day to day things that make my life pretty darned comfortable, if not deliriously joyful.
So this Saturday I'm going to share three things I'm grateful for...
1 :: the internet. For all the obvious reasons, but mostly for providing a means of connecting with fellow Avenuers and the community that's being built as a result.
2 :: the man. For his left-of-centre sense of humour, cheeky smiling, eagles t-shirt wearing, duck face when he's typing, decor-shopping, colour co-ordinating, non-drawer closing, significant other supporting, personality.
3 :: the furkids. And their verging on hysterical greeting when we get home. Their face licks to wake us up and remind us it's time for their breakfast - at 6am. Their goofyness, predictability and unconditional worship.
What's made you grateful this past week?
