I wasn’t going to post tonight/today so I could sleep early.
I don’t always follow the plan. I do sometimes.
Having a full time job means I write, prepare/edit pictures and read [your] posts in the evening – before, in between or after spending time with my little princess, supper, doing dishes, tidying up the toddler’s mess, extra work, etc. This means that I get about 4 hours of sleep. Sometimes I’m unlucky and I sleep for less than 4 hours. Other times, I get a good 5 to 6 hours of sleep.
However, there is this brief post I want to share.
I had been a little down lately, a lot critical and significantly more introspective than usual (normal?). I’m giving that a break.
Today, I just want to express my gratitude.
I am thankful for the rain. Yes, it is finally raining in Johannesburg!
I am thankful for my job despite it causing a bit of a dent in my current mental state. After all, it’s only sporadically stressful and agonizing.
I am thankful for my mind. I have valuable insights through my musings and pondering.
I am thankful for my parents. I am a parent, too, but to them, I am a (their) child. I have their perpetual support, I know.
There are oodles I am thankful for – my partner, my children, my relatives and friends, my WP community, house, cars, food, clothes, shoes, holidays and more. I have no reason to complain.
I am not complaining.
Today’s best, this morning, was realizing that my little princess and I were twinning. It was not deliberate. I can’t possibly be ungrateful for having such cuteness in my life. 😄 I didn’t even brush my hair (the whole day) because the hairbrush was missing, thanks to the cuteness. Yes, I went to work with that hair.
