I am really grateful for our little home.
It is a small house, but it is unique. It is set on a hill at the front of a bush reserve, so we have the benefit of living high amongst the trees and the birds. The house is set on poles and is built over three small levels, so it really is like living in a grown up tree house.
I’ve always been a homebody and now I have a place to make my own. I like nothing more than pottering around on the weekends, reading house and design blogs, watching cooking shows and slowly turning our house into our home.
this picture is like a mini-version of our house (without the tree in the middle). :) 11 months ago
I think a good way to do this will be to list something i am grateful for each day, a kind of gratitude journal.
Often times I tend to focus on what is difficult in life, rather than what is good. I tend to fear that there won’t be enough or that good things (not material things) will be taken away from me if I pay too much attention to them
So, I will aim to change that. I will aim to stop and notice all the great things in my life and learn to appreciate them.

Really, truly appreciate what, and who, I have in my life. Gratitude seems to be less evident these days, and I’m no exception. I have a feeling that to truly appreciate what I have, I’m going to have to see more of the world and people to understand that I am very fortunate. 11 months ago

everything I have… but something brought me down… I’m always sad, angry and I may be thinking I never have what I want or need… I mean, I’m always thinking that…. sad 12 months ago
A beautiful, healthy family. Two wonderful, beautiful children. A caring husband who is a good man and a good father, who loves his children, who is a provider, who brings me flowers for no good reason and makes me feel beautiful. Health care and no debt, no school loans, no credit card bills. My health and my family’s health. A roof over our heads, in the form of a small but comfortable apartment, in a village that is walking distance to Paris. A view of the Eiffel Tower from the park where my children play. The gift of being able to be a stay at home mom to my children for the first three years of their lives. A wonderful preschool for my three year old that is a two minute walk from home.
I am indeed very blessed. I must remember this, every day. 13 months ago
