I thought I'd change my regular Sunday post (there are only so many times that walking the dog, meeting a friend can make me happy). I was thinking this over in my head last night and was eager to get writing, then we had a bad night and I've had a little cry and I wasn't going to bother.
BUT we all have bumps in the road and if I wasn't so tired with so much to get on with then I probably wouldn't even have had a cry, so I am trying to get back on track.
I am THANKFUL for my parents, supporting us as much as they do. They drive me places when I need to go somewhere, they go with me if I don't want to do it by myself and they come and walk Anni with me so I get some company each week - though I suspect they'd do the latter anyway as they love Anni and love giving her back when she's all wet and muddy!!!!
I am THANKFUL that my Mum is still with us and we like spending time together. A few years ago you would never have read that here, but times change and events change us and thankfully we came out as friends.
I am THANKFUL that I have Anni B. She keeps me sane on a bad day and makes me laugh on a good day. I swear she has a human brain in her head, at least she seems to when there is food about.
I am THANKFUL for my friends, they let me deal with H's MS (which can make me so unsociable), they drag me out when I'd otherwise stay home. It doesn't matter if I see them every week, month or year. They are still there.
I am THANKFUL that I have my crafts. I think crochet has kept me sane. When H is asleep at 8pm and I am sat alone with Anni curled up, I can crochet away and not feel too lonely. Well, until she decides I've done enough and wants to put her head on my knee.............
I am THANKFUL that I love books. I'd hate not to be able to read for any reason. I can go to a charity shop and buy a book and I am happy.
and lastly, I am THANKFUL for my Hubby. We may have an uncertain future with his MS (and I have to learn not to worry so much) but we have each other, a great sense of humour (and yes we need it), and love for each other. I wouldn't swop you for the world- well I may hesitate if George Clooney arrives with a huge bag of chocolate oranges - but you'd understand that, wouldn't you?
