There are lots of things I can be grateful for in my life – I only need to look around and recognize them.
Tuesday is my weekly shopping day and I went to our local supermarket this morning and was amazed to see how many empty shelves there were. Even the freezers were almost completely empty. I have no idea why, as they were full last week, but I was thankful they had everything that I wanted.
One of my purchases was a large packet of mincemeat, which I have now cooked up with lentils and vegetables and turned into two meals to be frozen. I also bought a smoked fish (smoked trevally) that was made into fish cakes for dinner tonight – and then promptly forgot to take a photo!

We have had a few light showers during the day but tomorrow is forecast to be fine and sunny – after a frost. It might be hard to get out of bed in the morning, but I am happy that our house stays reasonably warm.
I am also thankful for our three cats as they bring a lot of companionship into my life. I almost walked on Millie when I went down to my room as she was asleep on my sheepskin rug and I never saw her. She is so black that she blends into the shadows and it is only her bright green eyes that show where she is.
I am grateful to live in a world full of the beauty of nature, to be able to enjoy sunsets and bird song and majestic landscapes.
Being thankful for the little things in life helps me to be more contented and at peace with the world.
I like to take time to stop and step back from all the strife happening in the world around me, and appreciate the little things that can bring happiness into my life.
