Be Thankful

I love  being involved in new challenges, and Steph from Scale Simple has started a new challenge, coinciding with Canadian Thanksgiving! What a lovely idea! She sent a little note to me inviting me to take part, so here goes!
The Challenge rules are simple

*Share this image in your bog post

*Write about 5 people in your life you are thankful for

*Write about 5 things in 2015 that you are thankful for

*Spread the love and challenge 5 other blogs to take part

So here goes!

Five people I am thankful to have in my life…

Wow, this is quite hard, as there are so many people I feel thankful to have here in my life…

My Mum – my reason to become a hopefully good wife and mother. A woman who I have seen go through the ups and downs of life with dignity, and a true inspiration. Love you Mum! X

My Pops –  my first hero. Isn’t a father always that? I feel thankful to have a dad like Pops, who has always put his family first, and taught me right from wrong, and how to cope with all manner of situations, in a calm manner. Love you Pops! X

My Hubby Dearest – I was indeed lucky to have met hubby when I did. He is truly the most wonderful person, and I see so much of my Pops in him. He loves me unconditionally, and  I wouldn’t be anywhere without him. Love you Hubby Dearest! 

My Lil Man –  you came to us after such a journey. Not only am I thankful for having you in my life son, but I feel lucky that of all th twinkles in my eye, you were the one that came to us! Love you son! X

My Lil Princess – I am thankfu for my Lil Princess, you came and completed our family, after seeing two possible siblings leave mummy early, and go take their placin the sky, as stars. You are a little diva, but you are our little diva, and we wouldn’t t change you for anything…(though having you sleep through the night would be a good thing…!)

Five things in 2015 that I am thankful for

The continued support of my family –  without them, I am nothing.

My friends – I don’t get to see my friends often… Life has made it hard, but no matter whether we are together physically or in spirit, they make my life easier to live.

My new job – it was earlier this year I was given the chance to finally take the step, and start teaching properly. I thank my Head for having the faith in me!

The chance to see my nephew –  last year, I was made an aunt, a real one, for the first time, and I was aching to see my nephew. And finally, this year I got to see him, only for a few hours, but still… What an emotional time! And next week, still in 2015, I get a whole weekend with him! They live abroad, in Finland, you see, so I can’t just drive over to them…

My Blogily – I may have started this blog in 2014, but the real connections I made were cemented this year, and I come to the end of this year, with some new people who have gained a huge importance in my life. I am so thankful for the opportunity I have been given to read amazing writers work, and to write alongside them.

And now my Five (hopefully) Thankful Nominees!

Happy Thanksgiving to all those celebrating on the 12th October!

    Ritu, for making good friend you used your intuition. Give and take, can your friend be there in a crisis and you can call them at 4am. Or offer refuge when things are going wrong?. They become one’s family.
