Time seems to be running away with me. I’ve noticed if I don’t post my Reasons To Be Cheerful first thing on Thursday, I often miss out on taking part. This is my favourite blog hop as it always me to count my blessings, no matter how rough things get.
Yesterday in my parent support group we were set the task of selecting two picture postcards that represent our blessings. Here’s what I chose (not the actual postcards though)….

The dragon is Valentina, my precious one. She makes me enjoy being a mother, holding her fills me with peace and joy.
The sunset represents my fortune of good health which I need to take care of my family.
So, on that note, here’s why I’m cheerful today:
- We had lovely sunshines all week so far, and that always lifts my spirits makes me feel like I’m on holiday, Carefree
- I’ve found an excellent Spring/Summer read! I miss not having the time to read as much as I used to, so if I have to eek out time to read I make sure to select something that’s worth it. I’m now reading The Rose Petal Beach by Dorothy Koomson.
- I’ve not polished my nails in a very long time. Now thanks to the new trend of nail wraps, I can achieve a manicured look in between feeding, burping, cleaning etc Angelo tells me my hands look like a spider, for him that’s as compliment.
- I didn’t take naturally to breastfeeding. I didn’t think it was something I’d do but sometimes once you meet your child your thinking changes and from the first time I laid eyes on my child breastfeeding felt that the best thing I could do for them and I wanted them to know me as ‘MOTHER’. I’ve noticed with Valentina, she likes to chat in between feeding. She’ll feed steadily for a few minutes, then suddenly she’ll stop , stare and me then break out into the biggest ever gummy smile like this…
… and proceed to babble. How sweet is that?!
Well, that’s me, why are you cheerful today? I’d love to hear from you.
