Counting Your Blessings

My brain is completely shot to pieces. I just don’t seem to be able to focus on much right now. The only thing I seem capable of is listening to Podcasts, reading non fiction and drinking tea…lots of tea…oh, and eating rubbish lol…I can feel my anxiety levels rising on a daily basis!

I know i’m not alone in this…I know i’m incredibly lucky and that there are people out there with loved ones in hospital and who are grieving the loss of a family member. I’m trying to stay positive…thinking of all our wonderful NHS staff, risking their lives on a daily basis.

One of my favourite films from my childhood is White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye (ok, yes, Danny Kaye was my first crush lol). In the film there is this great little song.

Yesterday in my corner of the UK it snowed…only briefly, and as I sat staring out the window, writing my gratitude list, I couldn’t help cursing. I normally hate the snow…because I worry about getting out and my husband getting to work…its so dangerous driving in it. But then my husband reminded me that we didn’t need to be anywhere…had no reason to go out in it if it settled. So I found myself enjoying watching the snow (and then hail) fall, rather than worrying about how it would effect me. Too often I forget just how wonderful this world is, and how blessed I am to be a part of it.
