My new Gratitude Project is on week two. As mentioned on the first one, I’ve been keeping a gratitude journal for many years of the big and little things I am grateful for. This project is to kick it up a notch!
This Sunday is special as it is Mother’s Day (well, here in the North America, anyway). I originally planned on focusing my list on all things Mother but cannot as we had quite a fright two nights ago and, after having the bejeezus scared out of us, the gratitude came in – big time!
At 3:00 a.m. on Friday, we awoke to a strange smell. We looked all over the house to finally step outside; hubby through the front, me, the back. I saw an orange glow and continued ’round to the side to find our garbage bin on fire! The flames were quite impressive. A quick call out to hubs and between the two of us: barefoot and in our skivvies, we put out the fire; a bucket each in hand, back and forth to the pool, to the fire! Half-hour later, we were pretty sure the fire was fully out. We went back for a restless sleep.
Just before 7:00 a.m. our doorbell was frantically pushed. Once again, up I jumped up and ran downstairs. A good Samaritan was walking his dog and noticed we had a fire on the side of our house! I guess we did not do as good a job as we had thought. After thanking the gentleman profusely, we quickly put out the fire “for realz”!
I am so grateful for my nose. If it weren’t so sensitive, I wouldn’t have smelt the fire burning on the side of our house!
For the positioning of our pool and that it was full of water.
Mom. Without you, I wouldn’t be here!
Sunshine! It makes everyone so much happier.
On my walks with Zeke, I have met quite a few friendly folks who stop and chat. So nice.
Getting a few contracts, in both of my loves: food and words
