A small little part of me is not feeling the blog love this month. It is the part that issued a challenge with prizes that has been totally ignored that has made me feel just a little bit sad this month. I seem to not be succeeding with some ventures I am trying, and I am feeling slightly underwhelmed by everything. I know this sounds like a pity party but I am not that type of person. I really do try to find something positive in all the things that happen on a day to basis, even when they are VERY bad. I even have a daily gratitude to remind me I have so many things to be grateful for. And today, I am going to have to concentrate on that a lot. Last night while we were at the Harvest Dinner at Vergenoegd the charm bracelet Dave gave me, with a charm for each year we have been married came off my arm! I am very tearful this morning about losing something so precious to me. So, here is a whole post dedicated to some of the things I am grateful for.
I am grateful for:
- a loving husband who cares about me all the time
- a roof over my head, a bed to sleep in and food to eat and share
- a car so that I can get to work and back
- a job that allows me to employ other people
- friends who love me and phone just at the right time
- blog friends who leave me amazing comments
- family who count every moment
Actually, I could go on and on – but I won’t. I will share one more thing I am grateful for. I have a friend who has been a part of my life for 30 years! She lives on the other side of the world and we stay in touch via email and phone. She has been a constant in my life, and we have been through a lot together. When she heard I was going to make a raw dessert she sent me an email straight away with a recipe. I am grateful to her for that, as I can share it with all of you. These date bars are fantastic and make a really healthy alternative snack. Now, I only wish I had bought them to work as I am starving!
