This week, more than ever, I am so grateful, every day.

I'm thankful for some sunshine after days of rain,

that seemed to fill our small world with mud, that left me feeling flat and uninspired.  

How beautiful to see our little wet chooks,

sitting in the sun.

I'm so grateful to wake up this morning,
to sunlight through my window,
and the knowledge
that I have so much love in my life.

This week I've been reflecting on so many things,

 it's been a tough week, a week of tears & little bursts of sweetness.

and some gorgeous flowers from a lovely & thoughtful friend. Thanks so much Sue.

I loved taking promotional photo's of local superstars Caleb & Leda. Have you heard/seen them yet? If you haven't then I'm sure you will, they are amazing and talented and wonderful.

I"m so grateful to have had a kiss and hug, a brief but special moment with a beautiful friend, 
to have been to dinner with some lovely mates whose laughter rang out into the night,
to drive through the country side under the twinkling sun and watch the fields turning green before my eyes. I'm grateful for every minute, every sparkling moment & for the friendship of those I hold dear. And that includes you, thank you so much for your comments & your thoughts, it means a lot to me.

I hope you are having a happy weekend, go outside! Smell the blossoms, feel the sunlight warm against your skin, cuddle your special ones and I'll see you soon, lovely friends xo

Oh godness I so relate to everything you have posted over the past few posts. I've been thinking, pondering, wondering too in a slightly introspective melancholoy type of way lately and then the sunshine bursts through for a moment and a childs hand holds mine and maybe it's going to be ok. Life is a complex process with so much letting go to do*sigh*

Thanks for this thoughful post - I think it's seasonal, which means we up here in the north aren't taking the time for introspection so much right now! But I was so grateful for your news and thoughts in the last two posts, and also really glad that spring is approaching for you. Lots to be grateful for, as you say.

I hope you get less wet stuff, both tears and rain, and get some more sunny warmth and happiness. Have a great week!

Your week sounds full of ups and downs and in-betweens. So, a good week then.

Your post was just so gorgeous, but I loved this especially: "to sunlight through my window, and the knowledge
that I have so much love in my life."

Just so beautiful, Beck. x
