Thankful Thursday

Today I need a bit of a lift. I'll be honest, I'm feeling a bit out of sorts.

So I'm doing something that I know usually works for me, which is focusing on the positive.

Please go visit Kate says stuff to join in with Thankful Thursday.

Today I'm having trouble looking at the big picture. I'm having trouble finding something profound to say.

But I do have much to be thankful for.

So today I'm thankful for the little things...

I received a Christmas card from a dear friend that I haven't seen in years today. How lovely that she included some photos of her daughter that I have never met. And how wonderful that I will be able to see her in person next year when my family travels to London!

I guess that's not such a little thing after all! That's what I love about taking the time to be thankful. Once you start counting them, blessings multiply!

I have an appointment to have my hair cut and coloured tonight. Isn't it lovely to sit back in the hairdresser's chair and be pampered? I especially love it when they wash your hair and give your head a massage. Bliss!

I have books to read! How delightful to be able to have a little lie down with a good book!

How about you? How are you feeling today? Maybe a little thankfulness would brighten it.

I so desperately need a haircut... wonder if I can squeeze that in before going back to work. Enjoy your time of pampering Fiona!

Kate said...

Love it Fiona. You are spot on about the snowballing gratitude :)

And how awesome to be going to London!! I have a jhellus!

Thankyou for linking up today :)

Ooh, I shall be living vicariously through you when your London trip rolls around!

I love hairdresser head massages. You've reminded me, I need to make an appointment for next week.

A hair makeover with a good book! That is definitely something to be thankful for! Hope you enjoyed it! :)

I love having my hair done - I'd do it every 3-4 weeks if I could. When the big picture is too overwhelming it's always a good idea to focus on the little things...

I hope you enjoyed getting your hair done. Cards and photos from old friends are great things to be thankful for.
