Thankful Thursday: With the combination of being unwell over the weekend and the beautiful rain, I have not gone on one walk all week. So I don't have any Lenten photos from my walks to share with you.
I actually had a pretty disappointing weekend. As I was unwell I missed out on a number of really special opportunities: meeting my newest grandson for the first time, having a sleepover with Caleb, going to a workshop I was excited about and going to the installation service of our new Pastor. All events I was really looking forward to but unfortunately couldn't do. But the fact was it didn't matter how much I wanted to I couldn't. So instead of dwelling on that, causing myself pain, stress and anguish, I just had to let go of my expectations, my timeline and my wants, accept the situation and be grateful for the opportunities that I do have. God is definitely teaching me a big lesson in patience!
Today I am thankful to God for: green grass and lawn to mow, rain several days in a row, time to knit, billy boiled on the rocket stove, chatting with Mum on the phone, videos of a little boy yawning, photos of a bigger boy having fun, students excited about a reading race and takeaway fish and chips!
