Gratitude List 07/03/2019

Myddleton House and Gardens, Enfield

Especially I won’t be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful (and amazing)

I love nature more and more. Not just it’s beauty but the miracle of life that flows through it. I had an unexpected day off yesterday and despite the weather, spent most of it walking around some beautiful stately gardens.

Today I am grateful for having three stately homes within 15 minutes of where I live. I’ve known of one for years but never heard of the other two.

Today I am grateful for my dad, who did know about them and suggested we paid a visit.

Today I am grateful my dad joined my girlfriend, her mum and I. It was great to share the experience with people who also have a passion for nature.

Today I am grateful for the beautiful colours, even at this time of year.

Today I am grateful for the staff who work on these gardens everyday to keep them well looked after.

Today I am grateful for the botanists who take the time to fill these gardens with the most stunning and most peculiar of plants and trees. I was amazed at times.

Today I am grateful for the beautiful birds in the gardens. The Wren, the Tits, the Parakeets and especially the ‘all singing’ Robin.

Today I am grateful for the evolution of species. As a result we have an incredible array of shapes, sizes and colours, each as miraculous as the other.

Today I am grateful for my sight, smell, and hearing which allows me to enjoy nature and all it has to offer.

Today I am grateful I have a mind which appreciates these things.

Today I am grateful I have been absolutely surrounded by life. Everything, including me had that in common.
