Maybe it's because I'm getting older (old, so very old), but I wasn't shaky with it. I didn't panic or moan or become paralysed by the sheer weight of everything I needed to do. Instead, I just quietly got on with it and kept getting on with it, around the clock, until the list was done. We'll not done, never done, but in a more manageable place.
So, this week I'm grateful for...
296. Effort - it's hard to keep putting everything you've got into just getting through the daily expectations, but when I make the effort, I usually reap the rewards. Jobs are all done and I feel good now.
297. Meals - we had two birthdays this week (LOML and Cappers... but I'll tell you about Cappers closer to her slumber party) and so we shared two special family meals out. LOML's was at a little sushi place and Cappers chose an after-school BBQ in a favourite waterside park. Both were the best.
298. Imps - there is no doubt about it, my youngest is an imp. Yep, she's got the divil in her, alright. But she is so entertaining, so frustratingly good fun that it's impossible not to be grateful for her impish ways.
Is there a little imp in your life too?
Over on Village Voices I'm also grateful for little moments this week. Come on over and link up your gratefuls. You might also like to read this post I wrote about having 'good mornings'.
