37 Days of Thankfulness Challenge, Day 3: #Sisters!

day 3 of 37

 

Sisters come in all shapes and sizes, from all walks of life, some biological and some not. Today I am thankful for all the sisters I’ve had in my life. First of all, I am thankful for my own younger sister as I had desperately wanted a companion for years after being the older sister to only boys. The age difference between us took a while to adjust to but after she got to an age where we were slightly more equal in thought it was smoother sailing and, after all, she is my sister so I’ll defend and protect her always.

I am also thankful for the countless soul-sisters I’ve acquired over the years. Each sister has taught me so much and for this I am grateful. Had they not touched my life in some way I would not be who I am today. So, thank you, sisters! You are true gems!

37 Days of Thankfulness, Day 1: #Bridport

blog banner

My dear friend Andrea invited several of her friends to partake in this Thankfulness challenge with her and I thought it might be a nice way to get me blogging regularly for the next 37 days. It’s a great idea and, as I have loads to be thankful for, I think I will be able to find lots to write about in the next month and a week as I go further into exploring my new home.

So, without further ado, Day 1: I am thankful for Bridport and the family and friends I already have here. Yes, it is my husband’s hometown and yes the family and friends I have here are his but they are mine too. When we said ‘I do’ we meant it and this included a ‘what’s yours is mine’ element and we have so far lived as such. The people we have here in Bridport have done so much for us already and even those surrounding us. If it had not been for our family and friends here we would not already have a home to call our own, a place to sleep and even furniture and such. My in-laws have helped us out so much and other family and friends have blessed us with gifts and well-wishes, near and far!

I am very thankful for all the little things and also for the town itself. I have met with friendly people in shops and have not had a cross word from anyone at all in the time I have been here. I’ve had fun exploring, eating out, meeting people, looking in shops and the like. I am very grateful indeed for having a good experience so far. It is such a beautiful place and I am just thankful for all the grace I have found and been given lately. So, thank you Bridport and your lovely people!

So a new & dear friend, Darita Bonita, & I decided to do 37 Days of thankfulness (until the end of May; like in November).

Joy comes from contentment; peace from security. Contentment comes from thankfulness (active deliberate action turned into a lifestyle of focussing on what one has, not what one is unhappily longing for); security comes from knowing who you are, what you have overcome, and what (and Who) you believe in (and belong to), which brings thankfulness & hope & courage. One requires looking at what we are provided with, & have had & will have: external. The other is more introspective: what’s under the surface; what has happened & what we are told/know will happen; but to do healthily, should be done in truth, thankfulness, & forgiveness.

So, my new dlf and I are going to read our bibles more, journal more (at least I am)…

Trying to get on the ball with blogging while having life interrupt is sometimes an inescapable plot. Either way though, I’ve been busy through the weekend, working on the shop and on some new designs. It’s National Stationery Week in the UK and I did manage to get on the Facebook page to let people know we are doing Free Shipping on all orders placed this week through Sunday, 6th April for all UK and Ireland residents.
