Oh lordy, where are the weeks going? It can't be one more sleep to September, it just can't! We've got our 'romantic road trip' happening next week. Yes! OMG, Yes! And a bit no, because I'm not even close to being packed (I haven't even got my passport yet... long story) and I'm even further away from being ready to leave my Tsunamis.
So, this week I'm grateful for...
284. Showing - one day soon I will show my children what the world is all about, but in the meantime I imagine that we'll be showing them that life goes on without mum and dad and they are secure with and loved by many.
285. Knowing - I know that my children are going to be cared for and happy with my parents. It is this deep knowing that means we can leave at all.
286. Growing - sorry for the daggy rhyming words this week (with the week I've had, all I wanted to do was add 'slowing', but no...), but I'm grateful that my children are growing up enough to allow us to leave them for a couple of weeks without heart palpitations. They are handling it ever-so-well so far.
Gulp, would you be able to leave your bairns for a couple of weeks?
I've had a lovely time this week making 'grateful messages' from many of the images I've featured on my Village Voices posts. I really love them.
We fitted in a spontaneous visit to the zoo on a school day this week... it was whirlwind to say the least!
Oh and don't forget you can join in grateful via Instagram these days. Snap what you're grateful for and tag it wih #52weeksofgrateful... your image comes up on the Grateful post. Too cute!
