We're home! And it's cold. I am in Ugg boots.
As we were traveling south the last few days I started to feel a heavy weight. It was getting heavier and heavier with every kilometre. So yeah, of course I got a headache. The weight wasn't stress nor unhappiness nor dread. It was just the weight of responsibility nestling itself firmly back on my shoulders. Knowing that it was time to back to all that Deep Fried Fruit I insist on juggling in the air.
When we walked in our front door the weight magically lifted.
My eyes took in the welcoming beauty of our home, the resources at our disposal, the light in the room and (despite my freezing toes) the warmth we have in our lives. It may have been freaking cold in the house (note to self - will get someone to turn on the heater a day before we arrive in future) but there was a warmth and comfort and feeling of energy about the place. Which energised me to take each piece of fruit from my deep fried bowl and line it up ready for some good old fashioned targeted action. That gave me focus and made me happy. And for that, I am grateful.
Today I am grateful for:
- Ugg boots
- Ducted heating
- Wood fires
- Pizza deliveries
- Spa baths
- Hot showers (without water restrictions)
- Washing machines
- A husband who helps unpack and wash
- Non frizzy hair
- Super fast internet
- Quiet kids enjoying the space in their own bedrooms
- High definition digital photos to remember the fabulous holiday we just had bringing hot sun and sparkling waters into our lounge room
