I never really think about how good I have it. Most of us never do. But don’t worry, that doesn’t make us bad people. Sometimes we just need to remind ourselves that things aren’t that bad and that is stuff in our lives we can be grateful for. We need to be reminded that there are things that make us say, “merci”.
Merci – my health
My health is one of the most important things to me but I never really think about how good I have it. I suffer from IBS and get the odd cold but overall it’s pretty good. At the moment I am working on how to control my IBS better with diet and natural aids, but overall it is going good.
Merci – my strength
I have been through a lot over the years. I won’t go through the massive list of drama because it would defy the point that I’m trying to make. Let’s just say I’ve been through a lot and have come through out the other side in one piece. I might have been a bit bruised but I always learn from the drama. Now I am at a point in my life when my strength is useful to others. I have friends and family who are going through a lot and I am proud to stand with them in their time of need.
Merci – my family
I am so blessed to have the family that I do. I’m not talking about aunts, uncles, and people I never see. I’m talking about my children. I have three children that are incredible and do me proud every day with their actions and compassion towards other people and creatures. At the moment, they are excited to be getting off for the summer at the end of the month, and I’m excited to have them home too! Although we have no holidays planned, I’m hoping we can get a few days out and explore our own wee country.
Merci – my job
You might not think that running this site (and a few others) could be classed as a job, but it is. Recently I had the opportunity to go back to full-time employment but I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t stand the thought of being an office dweller again! I would have better financial security and could switch off at the end of the day, but I think I would get bored! I love the buzz of creating content and seeing people enjoy it by liking and sharing on social media.
Merci – my pets
If you follow me over on Instagram, you will know that I have several pets. There are Thor and Loki, the cats. There are the dogs, Krypto the husky and Buffy the black lab. The newest edition to the pack is Summer, the husky mix. She was rescued from the pound (she was about to be put to sleep) and my friends over at Husky Hikes saved her. She is still settling in with us but so far so good. At one point I thought she would end up with my mum but Summer can be a handful!
