I’ve been having a grumpy week… punctuated by some really lovely gorgeous kid and friend moments, but still heavily weighed down with Grumpy.
Today while I was having a grump about the Small Boy being sick (again.. or is that still?) and wiping his snot all over me as he resisted the afternoon sleep that he so desperately needed and cried for prunes which there was no way in hell he was ever going to get… while I was working my Grump up to a frenzy I came across this blog post… Manifest Big Things in 6 Easy Steps.
Do you think it was a sign?
Maybe the interwebs were trying to tell me something?
Whatever it was… I decided to add my intention to the comments, to put it out there, to be positive and then let go and let it grow (ooh sooo deep, and rhyming too.). In return I am here now to do my Gratefuls…
I am grateful for…
1. The Picklebums… Bum 1, 2 and 3.
Yes they drive me INSANE, but they are also the ones who pull me out of the insanity when I need it most.
2. The Baldy Boy…
Who also drives me INSANE…. but I love him in spite of that which really speaks volumes doesn’t it?
Especially those who tweet back and make me smile, and those who text or email to check I am ok when I am off on a Grump.
Meeting people, going places, experiencing things and being part of magic.
5. Knowing we made the right choice…
Again and again things tell me we made the right choice for the girls this year and it is just the best feeling.
They’ve been battered by super heat, and super winds but are still amazing.
7. Food from the Garden.
It makes me feel immensely good to be eating food from our garden and even better to share it with friends and family.
Oh how I love evernote… thought it had gone bung on me today and I nearly cried. Oh happy day when I re-loaded and it was all good!
A bit of Jason, a bit of the ‘Nude Women’ and everything seems much better.
Can someone remind me next time I tell the whole of twitter how STUPID the STUPID world is… that I should go draw something or paint something till I feel better. Please.
