    It’s been a while since I did a grateful list………so three things I’m grateful for today are:

    - Renovations finally starting on my house after two years of waiting

    - A week with my daughter for the school holidays

    - Daylight Savings!!!! I love this time of year. I’m a ginger but I love the sun and having more hours in the day to get active and outdoors. It makes a big difference to my overall wellbeing………..physical, mental, and spiritual.

    It's been a while since I last posted anything, or came up with a list to be grateful about.

    - my husband
    - my bunnies who are unbelievably cuddly
    - being able to step back and breathe

    Good morning all,
    I want to share the 3 things I am grateful for with you.

    1) Have a supportive family
    2) Have a stable income
    3) Have two healthy furry friends who I know will always love me

    :)

    Love reading these gratitude lists :D

    May I ask what animal your furry friends are @Sunflowerseed?

    I love hearing what you said @Iwillbeok, it truly is a gift to be able to pause and breathe after not being able to for a long time.

    Today I'm grateful for...

    - Having a real breakthrough moment with my son last night where he opened up to me in a way he never has

    - The weather getting warmer and the fact that it's a balmy night tonight

    - Having a wonderful, comfortable bed to settle in to when I'm feeling as tired as I am today
