Gratitude Challenge – Days 15 & 16

What season are you grateful for?

It’s the first day of autumn here but living in Brisbane, Australia that won’t make much of a change to the weather.  Australia has 2 season;  Summer and a very short winter.  Here in Brisbane it is lucky to go under 5c/41f at night in winter.  But I will take that over our humid summers.

I love warm showers on cold winter mornings and snuggling under a doona at night.  Even in summer I find it hard to live without my doona.  I will crank the fan on high just so I can sleep under my doona.

Winter gives us enough of a reprieve from the heat for us to make it through another summer and I am grateful for it.



What about your body are you grateful for?

My hands.

Because of them I can….

Wave hello to a friend.

Cook dinner and bake muffins.

Hold up a good book.

Write my blog.

Drive me anywhere I want to go.

Give my kitty and puppy a good belly rub.

They have the ability to hold my loved ones close.
