I am grateful for my sense of sight because…

I’m able to see flowers, like the arctic starflower pictured, in nature in their full potential. (Even if the iPhone camera fails to convey it properly.)

And it makes me grateful for my glasses, without which I would watch the world through a fog.

I am grateful for…

  • My sisters. They’re much nicer now than they were when we were growing up – and I am so grateful that I have all three of them. They’re truly my best friends – well, except when we’re tired and grumpy and know which buttons to push to annoy each other…
  • Our parents. They believe we can do whatever we put our mind to, and support us. Though there might be discussion around certain things – if they aren’t 100% sure of the path we want to take, if we do decide to go for it – they’re there for us.
  • The lucid moments of my 91 year old grandmother with dementia.
  • My friends. Every one of them, both those I’ve met physically, and those I’ve only known online – for years.
  • My colleagues. I work with the best team of people ever – and the only bad thing about it is that it is mostly virtual meetings.
  • My health.
  • Sunshine.
  • Music
  • Books
  • Pretty flowers everywhere – even though I managed to dry out both my potted sunflowers…
  • Sunny Sundays when the sun is shining and you have a new book by your favourite author to read…
