21 Days of Contagious Gratitude


I am joining in with a big bunch of lovely bloggers to spread the love in November for 21 Days of Contagious Gratitude (special thanks to Maria for hosting the project – hi Maria!).  You all know that I love my gratefuls, and join in with Maxabella and Kidspot most weeks for 52 Weeks of Grateful. This extra project was something that I couldn’t resist, and I hope it will help to spread the gratitude bug all over the world.

Since starting to reflect on gratitude I have found it SO much easier to find things to be grateful for every day. I remember trying to write some of my first grateful posts, and I really had to think about it. Now I have so many that I don’t know which to choose first! It really helps to be able to find gratitude in even the most trying moments of my life – gratitude is a little life raft of happiness that I cling to when things are getting me down.

This week I am grateful for ….

1. small surprises ~ I love stumbling across cute little surprises around the house. A teddy stuffed under the covers of our freshly made bed was just one this week. They always make me smile.

2. books ~ I have a gorgeous collection of children’s books, some of my own from childhood, some bought especially for Pebble, some bought just because I love them, and many donated from a very generous woman who used to be a teacher (and my boss). I treasure each and every one.

3. health ~ I am so blessed that my family and I have our health. I have a healthy baby, a healthy daughter,  a healthy husband and a healthy me. I am very, very lucky.

4. food ~ every day I feed my family and I fresh, tasty, healthy (and some not so healthy) foods. We have so much to choose from, and have access to it so easily.

… a special  mention to the gorgeous Jo (you know who you are) who has embraced this gratitude bug and spread the love with her friends xx

  4. I love children’s books too! I could have bookshelves full. :)

    I love your list. And I agree with all of them. I feel blessed to have a healthy family. This is not true for many.
