Hello Starrlight :-)

I know what I will be grateful for when my hubby has cooked this Sunday dinner and put it in front of me , I'm starving :-D

Seriously though

I am grateful I have such a good husband that has stuck by me through thick and thin

I am grateful that I am loved

I am grateful that I may have my problems but notice there are others that have more yet don't even realise it but because I do I can work on mine

I am grateful I have a roof over my head , loyal people around me food in my belly ( well will do when hubby gets this dinner cooked :-/ )

Will leave it at that for now , but good post getting me thinking instead of what I want been grateful for what I have :-)

Take Care x

You are so so lucky Lulu that your husband is cooking for you; now THAT is truely a gift!!!

You remind me when you talk about your husband that I am grateful for mine too... he has said I keep him on his toes 😆!

So true that there are others who have more problems that us. It’s nice to be able to stop and help someone in need and to be grateful that we are able to do that.

Thanks for your response beautiful you!

Well Starrlight we have to taste this dinner he makes first it might not be a gift :-D

He actually is a good cook , was taught by the best ( me ) :-D

Yes I know when we are having a bad time we feel and rightly so nothing could be worse as we are the one's going through it but then when we have come through it we can look around and think ,well I am not as bad as I thought I was :-)

Hope you are enjoying your day , Im still waiting for my dinner :-D x

Hahaaaa it might not be a gift!; I love it!

So true when we are in it and when we have gone through it we see ourselves very differently.

I am getting ready to go to the art center again and get my son a bday gift called the tree of life.

Enjoy your dinner Lulu!

I am grateful that I have a nice home and a good job.

But mostly, I am endlessly grateful for and forever looking for ways to repay some very, very lovely friends.

Beautiful Eleanor Rose!!! I’m sure you repay them by being a friend back. But I know it is so nice to be able to give back. Happy day to you!

Like you I am grateful for nature ~ the tree outside my house ~ the little birds who visit and eat the treats I put out for them.

I am grateful I'm not living on the streets like some poor people ~ having to face sleeping outside in terrible conditions.

And on a lighter note ~ I'm grateful that is not as hot now ~ weather cooled down so much over past week 🙂x

Oh yesKittyKat my worries now seem so insignificant in comparison to those sleeping on the streets and such.

Oh yeah I loooove watching the birds in the bird bath enjoying themselves.

Oh it breaks my heart to see them ~we don't have many homeless people where I live ~ but if I do ever see anyone ~ will have a chat and buy them a hot drink and something to eat.

I buy the birds fat balls seeds etc and honestly at times it's a tonic just to watch them. After the dry spell of weather we had rain ~ and oh to watch the birds enjoying a bath in a puddle was priceless.

Hope you are having a good wknd.

Any more artwork on the horizon? 🙂

Reply

Yes it’s so so good of you to offer the homeless something. I used to drive around with care packages, I still should. I don’t see many but I do live near DC in which there are very many.

Ha I agree it’s a tonic watching the birds enjoy themselves!

No new artwork but I may post some in the near future 😊

Oh that must have been so rewarding!! I just couldn't pass anyone by tbh. Last year I was talking to this lad ( who had his dog with him), I got something for him and his dog. And he said a kind word meant everything ~ so many people just walk by or turn their noses up. That's in itself makes me so sad 😪

Look forward to seeing more artwork soon ⚘

Reply

I know that IS sad. Even a friend of mine told me I Should not worry about other people and that they should get a job. My father said something about another homeless person it being his own fault. WTF you have no idea why or what they are going through. Makes me 😡

Reply

Oh help that is harsh !! Sure most homeless people would love a job.

In the UK you have to have a permanent address in order to claim benefits. Just imagine every day being the same and wondering where you are going to sleep ~ and be safe. Oh I'm the same makes me 😠too !!

I think about that from time to time how it is for those who are homeless. I I was actually homeless for a bit in the winter of 2015. It was a strange time.

Reply

Oh ~ bet that was awful for you!! Must be truly awful not knowing where you will sleep 😟

Reply

Yeah one night it was a car until I nearly was frost bitten and most nights I had an actual house to sleep in as I knew many people who were willing to let me in. When my boyfriend now husband and I were teens we would sleep in the parks or woods since he was homeless I chose to be out there with him for comfort. It’s really hard to sleep out there.

Reply

Oh bless ~ so your husband knows what it's like to be homeless. You've both come out the other end ~ be proud 💕

Wth I was punishing myself! Not anymore ,he still calls,voicemail n whatever ! But I'm not afraid anymore !! No panic attacks over him anymore !! Yahoooo

That’s great you are sleeping now. I can say I am also thankful as I haven’t had any bad panic attacks in a while either. Hope all is well and the ex fiancé is really not bothering you.

Today is a good day, Starr. You know we take it one day at a time.

Please tell me how are you doing today? Have you tried the mood app yet?

Reply

I am doing the mood app yes and I love it! It’s good to sit down and review the day before sleeping. I think it’s too early to be having new significant findings patterns/ reasons for the moods just yet. I notice I like to be moving around when the thoughts are intrusive. And I am defidently a morning person and night person so just take away the middle part of the day and I’d live just fine 😜

What is the mood app

Reply

It’s a mood tracking app called EMoods. So you can answer questions each notes about mood and hopefully see some patterns, you can even send it out to your doctor. And it’s free!
