A place to appreciate the many things in my life that I am thankful for

It’s a new year…

…So I thought I’d start a blog. I have started blogs in the past and haven’t stuck with them. I never felt that I had anything particularly interesting to say and that people wouldn’t be interested anything I was writing.

My motivation for this blog is a little different. I’m taking inspiration from my friend’s beautiful blog about joy and writing about the things I am thankful for. There are so many things in my life that I take for granted and I want to take time to appreciate them more. I hope to use this blog to achieve this. I also hope that this blog will get me back into writing. I used to write poems, short stories and keep a journal in my teens, and somehow fell out of the habit. Hopefully this blog will bring me back to that place. Thank you for sharing this journey with me.

So what am I thankful for today? It may be blatantly obvious to many – I am thankful for my son. He is like a ray of sunshine. One smile from him and even my worst mood will melt away instantaneously.

That smile gets me every time
