A small realization

Things are going a little crazy on my side. I entered both my blogs into the A to Z Challenge, so I'm busy preparing for it, but on Wednesday, when I started writing the posts, a cold/flu or something hit me with the strength of a freight train. 

So here I am. Writing this post from bed. Ugh. 

Anyway, things are a bit more quiet, since most of my activities went on break for the holidays, including my singing. 

In that way, the cold couldn't have been better timed. I only missed one lesson and I'll get a chance for my voice to recover. 

Still, it's not really making getting back on track all that easy. But I will not complain about this any more. 

See, speaking to one of my closest bloggy friends, she asked me something that reminded me of something I take for granted.  

I'm happy. Sure, there are some serious down moments. But it all pales to insignificance when I realize how blessed I am. I have my family and friends. I have a home. I have a future. I have my dreams, and the ability to follow them. I have you all. I have God. 

What more could I want? 

When was the last time you counted your blessings? If it's been a while, feel welcome to count here. X

What more could you want? A box of tissues maybe. He, he, he. Me too, very blessed.
52 posts, hmm. Make two lists from a to z. One word per letter, one theme per word, one short post per theme. Done. Sounds so easy doesn't it :)
I'm going to try with just one list of 26 letters, your task is going to take a little more effort but, knowing you, it'll all come together just fine.
Get well soon my Southern friend, Geoff.

It's what I tell my children when they're down. 'Breathe slowly and realize what a miracle you are.' Mind you, if you have a cold, that's a tad difficult : ) But colds go and its good to have something to look forward to

Oh I am so sorry you're not feeling too well! Hope you continue to rest, rest, rest!! Hope too that spring will revive your spirits - cos it's absolutely beautiful now (Sunday in London)! Sun shining, blue skies and my seedlings are peeking out of my pots and new growth are sprouting on my older plants - and there was a gorgeous dawn chorus of birds earlier - so all is just lovely!! So I would say today I feel very blessed to be able to enjoy this weather and all the new growth! Take care
