Late last year, when things were quite mad and worrying, I realised that I don't focus on the quiet times enough. I don't stop and be still and appreciate it when all is calm. Rather, I wait for things to hot up and be crazy and then I say, "I wish it was calmer around here."
This year I'm going to try and drink in the calm moments that exist in the every day. Fill up on them when they happen so that I'm replenished for when they are gone. Build up my reserves of quiet so that when the avalanche rattles around me, I can draw on the peace I've nestled inside myself.
So, this week I'm grateful for...
311. Quiet times - I'm looking for you, I promise.
312. Bloggers who do cool stuff - like Jodi's linky that I'm loving already.
313. Tongues - I live most of my life with my tongue firmly in my cheek. I hope you all get that. I am always happy that it's there. My tongue helps me appreciate that the life we are privileged to lead over here isn't really all that serious most of the time.
What's got you grateful this week?
