Grains of thanks – small, important things.

Fri 19 Mar 1999 – Queensland (for Aunty Tia’s 50th)

Today I give thanks;

  • That I truly understood and felt my mothers’ need for and lack of self esteem
  • For my little girl with her sweet heart and good manners
  • For identifying my need to learn patience
  • That I miss Barry

 

Sat 20 Mar 1999 – Queensland

Today I give thanks;

  • For being able to thank my Mum for all the help she has ever given me with Brady
  • That I appreciate silence and the happy quiet that sometimes blankets our home
  • That I am learning grace in knowing when to be quiet and bite my tongue

 

Sun 21 Mar 1999 – Queensland

Today I give thanks;

  • For Aunty Tia’s happiness and health
  • That I told my mother I love her and that I know she heard me
  • That I am learning to maybe not dwell in the past but live in the here and now more fully so that I don’t have to revisit it when it does become the past

 

Thurs 25 Mar 1999 – UK

Today I give thanks;

  • For seeing Brady running towards Barry
  • For Barry’s kiss, feeling and warmth
  • For the feeling of coming home to our Pink House
  • That my daffodils and tulips are out

 

Fri 26 Mar 1999 – UK

Today I give thanks;

  • For feeling so happy seeing Brady and Jack together
  • For the public understanding of each other that Barry and I have
  • For the smile I put on the truck drivers face when I blew him a thank you kiss for letting me into the traffic

 

Sun 28 Mar 1999 – UK

Today I give thanks;

  • For the love I feel for Barry watching him in the garden
  • For my baby’s skin on mine in the bath – her trust in me in helping her float
  • For the sun on my face
  • That Barry liked and appreciated the dinner I cooked
