Counting My Blessings

After a somewhat emotional post yesterday I thought today would be the perfect opportunity to focus on the positive things in my life.
As luck would have it, I received an award this week that celebrates being positive!
Thank you to my lovely friend Michela for awarding me this 'Attitude for Gratitude' award.



The award encourages us to 'see blessings where they're not obvious, and to make lemonade instead of complaining about sour lemons'
I now have to share with you all of the things I am grateful for and pass the award on.

Wow! I have so many things in my life to be grateful for I really don't know where to begin, the list is truly extensive!

To list just a few, I am thankful for:
My family, My family is small just Mum, Dad, my Brother, Aunt, Uncle, Cousin and Me Small and compact! but they mean the world to me and me to them.

Friends, again I have few true friends and am grateful for the ability that comes with age and experience to recognise them!

I am grateful for all the wonderful people I have met through blogging, Blogland is truly a wonderful place! People are so kind, generous and supportive of each other. Its really no wonder we all spend so much time in this lovely little bubble!

My health - I have the constitution of an ox!

My home - I have a lovely home of my own (which reminds me I really do need to share it with you guys!)

I have a great job that I love (most of the time!)

I could go on and on about the wonderful things in my life but that would make for a boring post (if I haven't bored you already!)

Now comes to the business of nominating!
I would love for all of you to take this award as I think expressing gratitude is a wonderful exercise, so please everyone and anyone feel free to take this award!

That said there are a few special mentions I would like to make

Sherry @ If I Could Set My Soul Free - I love Sherry's blog and think she would write a lovely post on this subject!

Angel @ Kissed By An Angel - A new blogger who I am enjoying immensely (pop over to meet her if you haven't already, she is lovely!)

Have a lovely day ladies xx

Lots of Love
