Celebrate The Little Things: Gratitude List #19

Gratitude list image - seagull soaring in blue skiesI have been feeling so much gratitude for so many little things over the last week. Things that would probably seem insignificant to others but have brought smiles to my face and made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. These little things are actually big things because they create happiness, joy and love in my heart, and that is what makes my world go round. So what are these little things that I have been grateful for this week? Well, they’re things like:

1. Finding a lovely new bed for Ella and then having it turn up just a few days later. It was so nice not to have to wait weeks for it to arrive like you typically would for a new bed.

2. Finally having the children together in their own room. It is such a lovely thing to see them enjoy the space together. I really hope it brings them even closer and that they enjoy sharing over the next few years.

3. Finding so many lovely online children’s stores that have beautiful things for decorating the little ones room. It’s amazing how children’s design has come on in just the last three years.

4. Getting a gorgeous new MAC lipstick for nothing on the weekend. Every time I get a new lipstick I feel like I find a new favourite!

5. Picking up a bunch of white speciality tulips on the weekend. I bought some last year and have been looking forward to getting them again this year. Their pretty frilly petals are everything.

5. Unexpectedly finding a beautiful top to start my Spring wardrobe.

6. Getting my hair done after what feels like forever. I practically feel like a new woman!

7. Finally getting a dentist appointment sorted for myself and the little lady, and after worrying about it for so long it was actually all fine.

8. Seeing the little guy crawl for the first time this week which was definitely the highlight of my week. He’s been trying to crawl for at least the last two weeks, so to see him finally figure it out was just melted my heart with love.

9. Seeing Ella get her first birthday party invitation from school was the best feeling ever. I can’t tell you how grateful this made me feel. That one small invitation says so much more for me. It says that my daughter is socialising at school. It says that she has friends. It says that she is involved and it says that she is part of her class. It’s funny how we sometimes don’t realise that the little things mean so much more..

    This is so lovely. Its so important to be grateful for the little things, I used to make everyone say one thing they were grateful for at work when everyone was in a bad mood. I think it annoyed some people but it perked others up! #marvmondays

    Oh I am the same when I get new lippy it instantly becomes my fav. Oh a spring wardrobe – if ever there is a thing to be positive over it’s definitely a new and hopefully warmer and season and clothes to boot. #marvmondays

    I love the birthday invite one. So sweet. It does make you feel good that they are socialising.

    What a lovely list! I got my hair done this week and I feel all brand new! #MarvMondays

    The birthday invite one is a great point, my boy came home a few weeks ago with his first one. I started to worry this year as there has been lots of parties and he never seems to get an invite. He has a small group of close friends rather than lots of friends, I went along with him and seeing him having fun and hugging his friends was amazing!

    Hi, what a lovely post it’s always important to focus on the positives what ever they may be. Having my hair done and a new lipstick would also be on my list. Today I would add a nice walk in the winter sun #MarvMondays

    Ah so many lovely things. Glad the littlies have settled together and the room sounds amazing. Having a little pamper can make you feel a million dollars. We off on hols in May and I’m dying to sort some clothes out! So lovely for Ella to get her first invite. She will have a fab little social life!! Thanks for hosting xx

    Our kiddos got bunk beds a couple of weeks ago, I can’t wait for both of them to share a bed. The littlest is still co sleeping with us at the moment, but when he joins his big sister they’re going to have the best time.

    A splendid collection of loveliness! A new haircut is always a real treat…or is it just the child free latte filled hours in the salon? 😉

    Aww I love this. The small things really are the big things aren’t they. We are always grateful for the small things in our house because these small moments, like you said, are usually the ones that pull on our heart strings and make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
