Simple Happy Life – 6 November 2018

When was the last time you stopped and gave thanks for all the small things? I was listening to @gretchenrubin today talking about how she likes to celebrate the day they found out that her husband Jamie was cured of his Hepatitis which up until then had bee a major health worry and life limiting conditional. I felt so happy for her (though I had heard the story before!) but it did make me reflect; how often are we grateful for the small and relatively inconsequential? At momentous points we naturally pause to say ‘thank goodness’ or ‘I feel so grateful for…’. But how about an ordinary day?

Today I am grateful for;

Soup
Mist
The feeling of my child’s soft hand in mine
My husband doing a towel wash
Hot tea after a windy walk
A conversational dog walk with a neighbour

How about you? Give me your small things!
