Joining with Nerd in the Brain (and others) for Three Things Thursday’. As “Nerd” says…
*three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy*
First, I’m always grateful for a surprise package through the post, and this brooch from one of my nieces was a real treat. It’s especially lovely because it was hand made by someone she works with, thus supporting a local crafter.
Second, I’m grateful for my accountant. I hate doing the accounts and every penny I spend on not having to do them seems well worth it. Particularly so this year, as his number crunching resulted in a small tax rebate… which arrived this week. Anyway, who wants to be wrestling with a tax return when you could be crocheting cute things?
Third, and perhaps most important, I’m grateful that I live somewhere where guns are uncommon and where my community includes people of different sexualities, races and beliefs all getting along fine. We may disagree, we may not all be friends, but, generally, no one seems to feel the need to impose their ideas on anyone else. I hope that no one I know feels under threat of violence or censure. I’m very lucky to have a diverse set of friends and I value the richness and depth of their differences whilst knowing that, deep down, we all have a huge amount in common. Let’s share the love and be grateful for this every day!
