When both our beautiful daughters were born I remember being overwhelmed, not only with love (and relief that it was all over), but also with gratitude that they were healthy. And still today, right now, this moment, I am so very grateful that my precious girls are healthy. I do know this is something most of us do take for granted and seldom even realise or even consider how grateful we should be for that reality. Every now and then something makes us stop and think and give thanks. Today it was the link I was given to a youtube clip of a wonderful brave young boy with cerebral palsy. What a beautiful boy and family, who bring joy and empathy and compassion to the fore in so many people. The wonderful image of his courage and tenacity hasn’t left me all day.
I hear you loud and clear Lianne and perhaps it’s because this is something I also pondered and am grateful for since Cade’s arrival his health and the health of our beautiful girls too. Still thoroughly enjoy your blog even though I don’t comment on them all you are beautiful and real would love to catch up with you when my mom returns to SA early July love to you all
Hey you … that would be wonderful … would love to catch up. And glad you get something from my musings, realising more and more what a gift gratitude is. xx
