Thankful 4

My dear friend Lisa has started Thankful 4 on Thursdays and I think it is a great idea for us to stop and remember all that we have in life to be grateful for.

If you would like to join in too, you can!

Just pop over and visit Ledamae

I have so much in my life to be thankful for but this week I have been feeling a little tired so I am particularly thankful for my Wonderful Husband who makes me a coffee every morning and makes lunch for both Nicholas and myself and he makes sure that we get out the door on time.

I am also very thankful that I work with a great group of people who are really flexible and don't mind if I am late to work every now and again.

I am also grateful that thanks to my family and work I was able to cut back my hours this year and I have a bit more time to myself to rest or catch up on other things that would normally keep me up later at night.

I am thankful that I have a beautiful boy who helps his Dad clean up after dinner so that Mum can put her feet up for a while and relax.

I am also thankful that I have a comfortable bed to climb into every night.

Oh and I am very thankful to both my gorgeous boys for the new quilt cover set that they gave me for Christmas!

I love it, What do you think?

(P.S I am thankful that I have a selection of cushsions to choose from because after seeing these photos I decided that I needed to switch my '&' cushion for something abit lighter in colour)

What are you thankful for today!

Make sure you stop in to visit Lisa and check out her Thankful 4 post too
