It is not a given that we will see the next and the next and the next day. And so I celebrate this day and the beautiful month of April. I can’t wait to see what’s in store. Before I resume regular transmission ūüôā it’s important for me to stop and give thanks for the quarter that has been.

THREE THINGS

I am grateful for life. It’s so beautiful to wake up to the sun and enjoy its shine. And more beautiful to wade through the rains and making it through. Life is beautiful!

I am grateful for work. The opportunity to creatively execute my role. The¬†opportunity to be me. Such sweet sweat! Such sweet sweat…

I am grateful for dreams. Not just mine but of others as well. Dreams colour the world. Absolutely nothing wrong with viewing stuff through rose-coloured lenses.

‚̧ Happy April ‚̧

2016…

When they say money can’t buy happiness, it’s the absolute truth!

flowers2017 is here!!!

O what joy to see another year! It wasn’t guaranteed – nothing in this¬†life is guaranteed – including¬†the dreams, the resolutions and the plans that come with¬†every new year. STILL, We hope. We lean in with anticipation. Because there is just something about a new year…

There’s also something about every year we exit… The ups, the downs, the plateaus. My 2016 was tough. STILL, I give thanks. God kept me. I have so much to be grateful for. I pick three for this post.

I am grateful for friends.¬†Those I enjoyed a season with and those I continue to enjoy the seasons¬†with. Nothing more generous than a hello, a hug, a hot cuppa. May God’s immeasurable blessing be poured into the lives of those who make it their duty to refresh others.

I am grateful for family. They¬†made me feel safe¬†in a year where all my insecurities¬†came to shore. I some days felt like giving up but the¬†thought of their¬†unreserved love made me get up, dress up and add lots of fat. HAPPY fat if I may add ūüôā And when for the umpteenth time the question ‘do you have a family’ came up. My single self gave a big happy nod because I do!

I am grateful for faith. Like mentioned in my previous post, I questioned¬†lots of things in the gone year. Some answers came immediately.¬†Other answers had¬†me wait. There is one answer I am still hoping for. I need more faith than I can conjure ūüôā I am still sore. A whole less sore thankfully. BUT I¬†am alive and that’s a good place for faith…
