Things to make me smile today

Friends who know the small little gift that will put a smile on your face and mean something forever.

Other people's blog posts that remind you:

that we all feel guilty about our own little things
Or to look for the simple things right in for the simple things right in front of you to make you smile

Friends who turn up for afternoon tea just to be here to help out during the crazy time of the day. Who hold the baby while you get the washing in, who ask the neighbours kids to go home when you've had enough and who will sit and listen while you rant about your stink day.

Finding new recipes that are quick, easy and very yummy - Chocolate chip slice (added to my recipes)

Friends who come as soon as you text and remind you that you're not the only one who has ever been here. They too have felt like this and made it through. A friend that gives you the strength to renew the promise to yourself that, I will live. Friends who can tell you their own story as they now look back and laugh. Friends sitting with you, proving that this is achievable and that there is someone out there who you are the most precious thing in the world to. Someone who sent his son, to die, so that I might have life. Friends who remind me God has a plan and a purpose for my life. A purpose that will include the things I am going through now, that will one day be used for his glory. Who remind me that even though I might not see his beauty in my life right now to look and I will find it somewhere.

Books that keep me hooked to read the next chapter and make me want to forget my list of jobs. Even though I promised myself to never read the twilight series they are easy reads and keep you going - great mind distraction.

Songs that make me want to dance on my bed and sing with my hairbrush and enjoy the moment.

And lastly, my blog. Somewhere where I can come to rant, share, record, remember and let it all out. Somewhere that my journey can be remembered and I can see my process and growth. Somewhere that I can write when I feel happy, sad, angry, joyful, blue, grey, black or rainbow. Somewhere that I can be me no matter how I look or feel today.
