This Saturday I'm grateful for... warm hugs

Here in Maxabellaland, Saturday is traditionally a sport, shop, sort the clothes, sweep the floors, strangle the Tsunamis (insert other 's' words here - no pun intended) kinda day. But on Maxabella loves... I've been making Saturday my 'grateful day'.

It's nice to pause to appreciate the things in your life that are positive and affirming, whatever they may be. I thought it might be nice for us all to do a Saturday Grateful post and link up for lovely bloggy visits.

This Saturday I'm grateful for...

1. Warm hugs. I had a bit of a rough time this week. Thank goodness for warm hugs and kind words from the lovely LOML.

2. Big tries. That extra effort that I know the tsunamis are making at something they don't really like, just to please their mumma.

3. Schools. I love the fact that while technology changes and lessons are learned differently, the contented ebb and flow of today's school is just as I remember it.

What's making you smile today? Sign up to the linky and enjoy visiting other grateful bloggers today.

This is lovely. I do a "3BT" (three beautiful things) on a fairly regular basis. I think I'll do one tonight and link up here.

Thanks for the reminder. It's good to pause in the midst of all the madness, and take notice of the things for which to be grateful!

I'm sorry you had a rough week but I'm so glad you have a ready source for warm hugs. They can be very therapeutic, can't they?

I feel like I have had one of "those" weeks too. Sending more warm hugs your way. Happy Weekend!

My son ate carrots. A vegetable. On his own with no bribe. And declared that he liked them. Boy, was I grateful (and astonished) for that breakthrough!

PS: Sorry you had a rough week. I'm always grateful for time to catch up on your blog!

A very wise lady commented on one of my blog posts a few weeks back saying:

Some days/weeks you just gotta let some things go. We get run down, we lack focus and energy. Relax and let it flow x

I am giving this fabulous advice back to you this week. Hope next week is better for you.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend xx

I am grateful that we are now on school holidays. I am also feeling so incredibly grateful for the wonderful day at home together we had as a family today. It was completely simple but one we will remember fondly for a long time.

Warm hugs are definitely up there- especially when from my kids. Big Bro will hug me when I'm hurt, and I must say I'm a reborn believer in "kiss it better", thanks to him.

What a great blog. I've just discovered you via Messy Freckle. I've left a linky thing but put an apostrophy in which has made it look strange...sorry! Hope next week is better for you.
