one hundred and sixty nine


I am grateful for an exquisite last morning for Mel and her girls. And I’m grateful┬áthat not even an impossibly grumpy teenage daughter (only with me of course, but it’s not me, it has to be her, I mean I’m so calm and non reactive) could take away my joy at an early morning walk on the river. But I am especially grateful today for Mel’s visit because her calm demeanour always makes me realise how full on I am. And how accepting I have become of me.

I get to drive along this river every single day. I am extremely grateful that this is my route to virtually everywhere, including Kate and Jem’s school. I am grateful because it takes just 3 mins. And because it gives me a moments pause to reflect on the things I should or shouldn’t have said.
