Gratitude List 05/04/2019

With all the negative publicity it’s easy to forget there’s so much good in this world. I’ve spent most of the morning on public transport which can be a testing time in the London rush hour. But today I am grateful to be seeing the good, especially in people.

Today I am grateful for the lovely family we share a commute with almost on a daily basis. The three children are adorable and well behaved. Always by their side, their mother, who you can tell is doing an amazing job.

Today I am grateful for the crowdful of people that accepted the queue into Seven Sisters for what it is – a time to show patience.

Today I am grateful for the tube driver who took the time at each station to personally announce the stop and wish everyone ‘a great day’.

Today I am grateful for the member of staff at the hospital who enthusiastically bounced through the waiting room carrying a tin with what I can only assume had a home baked cake inside.

Today I am grateful for the lady who held the door open for us. We weren’t exactly close behind her but she held it nevertheless. The simple things.

Today I am grateful for the platform speaker at London Bridge (yes TFL again!) who made everyone smile with his unique way of telling people to ‘mind the doors’.

Today I am grateful for my colleague at work who is absolutely nuts! 100 miles an hour! 25 hours a day! But he’s always got a smile on his face! He may not love his job, but he loves life!

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.

Today I am grateful for another stunning sunrise. Absolutely beautiful and a strong reminder of where I am.

Today I am grateful for my girlfriend. An amazing person sent from my higher power. Many others wouldn’t have been up for the job!! I’m truly blessed to have her.

Today I am grateful she is also the perfect step mum. While I was working until late la’s night, she was looking after my kids, teaching and having fun.

Today I am grateful I am becoming a better partner. I must’ve been such hard work in the past. I admire her resilience.

Today I am grateful for my daughter’s face this morning. She has the most vibrant smile and cheeky laugh!

Today I am grateful for my teenage son who has shown amazing maturity lately. I honestly admit I have learnt a lot from him recently.

Today I am grateful for the kindness and generosity of a very good friend.
