Missed it again, but gratitude is still gratitude

So thankfulness on a Thursday is not really working out for me… Because once again it is Saturday… And perhaps thoughts of gratitude haven’t invaded my everyday, but I am still enjoying stopping and reflecting…

Nov 16:  A good list – I have a long list of things I need to do at work… Unfortunately for everything I cross off 2 more things seem to be added… But today I got lots done… And there is nothing better than the feeling of crossing things off the list…

Nov 17:  Listening ears – so after my over achieving yesterday, today I crashed and realised that Christmas is coming like a steam train and I am no more ready than I was weeks ago… But luckily I sit with a winner friend at work who was more than helpful as I panicked.

Nov 18:  How far I have come – I had the opportunity to reflect today on how far I had progressed at work over the last 2.5 years, and to be honest it was a pretty good reflection, I have grown a lot as a dietitian, but also in a number of other areas and I am really thankful to work somewhere that helps me use and also appreciates my skills.

Nov 19:  Private Health insurance – Tonight I ordered new glasses, something that would have been much more expensive without my health insurance, but more than the discount I got today, I am thankful that we can afford luxuries like health insurance, because there are lots of people that cannot.

Nov 20:  Home – I know it sounds simple, but I am thankful for our house.  It has all we need and we have made it ours and it is good.

IMG_0422Nov 21:  Friendsgiving and Pumpkin Pie – Hanging out with people you love seems to be a theme of this thankfulness month, but I suppose it just highlights how grateful I am to have friends and family who I love and can spend time with.  There is also something special about baking special treats for people too and today I made a pumpkin pie, thanks to a generous recipe share from a friend, just for Davo, although we all enjoyed it too, because praise the Lord it turned out pretty good.

So there you go, another week of November gone…
