Today I am Grateful For... Coping

This week has been hard.  Two of our dear and loved immediate family are facing serious health issues.  Illness is such a debilitating thing for all involved and we all feel a bit battered at the end of this week.  In fact I have had to kind of think about gratefulness.  Which is good, it is making me be positive!  So this week I am grateful for:
  • Hugs from my almost 13 year old son as he "cheers" me up
  • Feeling the satisfied purr of the Puss when we sit together on the couch
  • The support of my lovely husband
  • The kind thoughts of all my lovely friends
  • Good food and my veggie plants that allow me to potter, snip, mulch and squash bugs!!
  • Beautiful photographs, like the one above, from Photographs for the Soul
Thanks Maxabella for allowing me to play along :)

I love the picture.
I also send good vibes your way as family members having health issues is very stressful.
But as you recognise here you are surrounded by love.

Sorry to hear about the challenge of your family with illness. I hope they are able to recover quickly for all involved. I love that you are still able to find things to be grateful for. Lovely to find your blog. N x

It's a hard thing. I know. It's great to hear you remembering the good things, too. It'll keep you going. And that photo is gorgeous!

Michelle, sometimes coping is all we've got in us. I'm sorry the chips are down, but I am hoping that some of the beautiful gratefuls you've shared with us have lifted you up just a little bit. Best wishes to you and your family. x
