Oh, it is a joy to feel Grateful. I'm even grateful that I recognise when I am feeling grateful...does that make sense....anyhoo - grateful that Maxabella Loves decided to create this linky on a Saturday makes me grateful too - so join in and feel the love...
What am I grateful for -
1. Books - I love books! I love buying them, i love reading them, i love going to bookshops and i love buying books online (and having them delivered straight to my door without a car parking problem in the world!). I have a little confession! I love to read trashy Chick Lit - yep, girl meets boy, love story, twist but happy ending, bargin bin type! No sad stuff, gory, death, murder, or sci-fi for me. I love that sometimes I just churn through a book in a few days....such satisfaction!
2. Music - oh what the world would be without music. If you stopped past this time last week, I was excited about going to the Bon Jovi concert! Well, he did not disappoint and I can officially say it was the best concert I have ever been to and that Jon Bon Jovi himself is the second* sexiest man on the planet!! We love music in this house, and it is on far more that the box (which I am also grateful for!)
3. Trust - On an expedition last weekend to get the kids a real Christmas tree, this mumma bear was without cash at a "cash only" tree buying place. We had been to several others of this variety and I felt deflated. The owner told me of an ATM at a near by restaurant, but it was out of order. I was frustrated, hungry and feed up. I told the owner to take the tree out of the car - I couldn't pay him.
"No problem - you take the tree home, and come back later with the money!"
"huh" was all i could manage. I didn't think shop owners did Apro anymore (well not in the city!)
Needless to say, I took the tree home feeling elated that there is still complete and utter trust of strangers! Oh and of course I went back and paid him a few ours later!
*I married the sexiest man!
