Thankful Tuesdays: Be thankful always

Have been feeling pretty tired the past week, especially with the dissertation to finish on top of other stuff to do.  And I think I'm coming down with a flu... but whatever the case, there are things to be thankful for:

:: God's Word that gives encouragement and teaches us about Him.  Everytime I open the Bible there seems to be some reminder or encouragement, or something new to learn. :)

:: Clouds in the sky.  That bring rain.  That come in funny shapes, like this bunch we spotted just yesterday...

:: Helping hands, both large and small: The hubby who faithfully does the dishes every time.  My mum who has been baby-sitting the past few days so that I can get my writing done.  And the little boy who insists on helping to sweep the floor, and does it quite throughly too!

I remove 2 sections of the "pole" to make it shorter and easier to manage for him.

:: While meals aren't exactly a breeze now, the boy seems to be eating better.  I've been trying different dishes using recommendations and recipe books, and I think he's been liking the variety. :)

:: The funny things kids do/say: The boy never fails to make me laugh.  Like giving me kisses and declaring "Mama happy!".  And the other day, when I was busy preparing breakfast, I gave him a book and asked him to look for the bear (there was no bear, but I was just trying to buy time).  There was alot of "Mama?  Mama, no bear no bear!"... followed by a "AHHHH!  I found it!  Mama, bear in book!"  And I returned to the room to see this:

What are you thankful for today?  Do share! :)

  9. Hi,
    Just a gentle reminder regarding manuka honey. Tried to use warm water instead of hot water as it'll destroy some of it's anti-bacteria element.

  10. Hey CE, thanks again! Yes, I've been putting the manuka in warm water... :) Thanks for the reminder! Its been helping lots!
