-my beautiful boy who doesn't see the world the way everyone else does and that is super fine with me-my gorgeous girl whose stuborn streak will do her great guns when she is 30-my fab hubby who supports me in whatever I choose to do, even if he thinks I am a bit wacky-my freinds that I have made on line and in real life who make me feel less wacky-my mum who has always been number 1 in the cheer squad and taught me the value of being a good person.-having enough money to have a home and the things that I need if not always the things that I want, but there is nothing better than a warm place to lay your head.

Lovely post Lexi.Today I am grateful for:* no nausea today* my baby holding my hand and trotting along happily beside me as we walk.*meeting all my writing deadlines for the week.*re-connecting with a dear, dear old friendCould go on and on! Thanks for asking.x
I was only thinking about being grateful today while sitting bumper to bumper. I like the idea being American Thanksgiving, but I think it should be celebrated more than once a year.Today I am thankful that- the anaphylaxis Cohen suffered last night was not as bad as it could have been - there are wonderful pedeatric doctors at the hospital- I had an amazing day out with my baby and twin sister- my love cooking me dinner- that I don't have to sit in peak hour traffic everyday, only once in a blue moon on the way home from the City.I hope all is well in your world. Thanks for reminding everyone to be grateful. :)

I get a lot of my clients to keep a daily diary like this. sometimes they start with one a day and sometimes it is 1. i woke up today. Mine is:1. i have the best husband in the world who cooks me beautiful dinners EVERY night2. I have a healthy bright little ray of sunshine that is Busy.3. i live in paradise4. i love my job 5. we are happy, tolerant and forgiving of each others quirks
