Five Minute Friday (on a Sunday): Grateful

Linking up with the lovely Lisa-Jo for Five Minute Friday (albeit two days late ;)). This week’s prompt? Grateful.


I’m a blessed girl.

I have so much to be grateful for.

So much more than I could convey in a mere five minutes (but I’m going to try!).

For me, I’d rather pour you a glass of wine, or talk your ear off, or show you my many little lists of little happies, blessings, and joys. Instead, I’ll aim for five minutes…

I’m grateful for misty mornings, sweet coffee, silly texts.

Books that drag me in, and evenings spent curled up under a throw.

A job I love, and friends I adore.

Scottish mountains under a plane and safe landings on whistlestop trips.

Friendly cats and old friends.

The best badger in the world.

Challenges and unexpected letters.

Old trees and new books.

The smell of start of school, all sharpened pencils and freshly hoovered carpets.

The warm glow of a job well done.

Being able to help, to guide, to serve.

I’m grateful for prayer.

For Skype.

For Pride & Prejudice.

For MC Hammer.

For the future and the joy ahead and the past and the lessons it has taught me.

For the present, in all its glorious whirl.

For ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ and girldates.

For time to think and rest and connect.

And for a million other things, I am grateful.
