When you're feeling better

In times of ill health, when you're just feeling rotten, or things are just nasty,
I always tell myself
When I'm better I'm going to be thankful, and enjoy it, and not take it for granted.
I thought about this yesterday afternoon. When we were all feeling not so tired, and a little more healthy.
I noticed
and I enjoyed
some of the little things.


Opp shopping goodies. Waiting for sorting and cleaning.


New scrubbing brush and new (favourite) soap. And a feather from Liam probably.


New art for the wall.


Dishes with a helper.


Aunty Bryony's pumpkin for dinner.


Little hands helping with dinner prep.


Keeping busy for a bit, with mum's beads.


Post nap bed hair.


Two small helpers in the garden.


Bright and fresh.


Little hands. Little tomatoes.

And you know I'm so glad I did, and I'm so glad I captured them with my camera, and I'm so glad I'm writing this post now.
As I need another little reminder this afternoon.
Isla has thrown up again, and both her and Liam have had lots of tears this morning.
Perhaps I spoke too soon yesterday.
Oh dear, I do hope Liam doesn't get it too.
Fortunately they are both having big sleeps just now. Hopefully they are healing kind of sleeps,

So much to be thankful for though it's hard to see the blessings when weariness and sickness are present. Your photos and comments have reminded me of my 'thankful-fors'-so...thanks!

Hi Aaron and Hanna - glad you're all feeling better. Mum mentioned the spell Isla had. That sounds kind of scary.
