I am lucky

Posted by swewi on July 2, 2011

I am reasonably healthy. I am married to a great guy who says he loves me almost every day. I have two gorgeous, independent and smart daughters that loves me unconditionally. I have a family who cares about me and my family, who keeps in touch on a regular basis. I have many great friends, and a few really, really dear friends who I love, and they love me for who I am. I have a job, and they pay me OK. It’s not my dream job, but it’s a good place to be for me at the moment. I have a car that takes me from A to B without too many problems. I have a house to come home to every night, and in that house I am warm, I have a comfy bed, a shower with hot water, and technical stuff that makes my everyday life easy and comfortable. I have food, and I have never NOT fed my children five times a day. I have clothes to keep me warm, and my kids have more than enough of clothes too. I have a hobby that I am passionate about, I have materials and tools to use for it, and I have enough products to be able to send some to others from time to time. I am lucky and I am grateful.


Thanks for reading this. I just needed to say this for reasons I can’t really share here. But in the end the reasons doesn’t matter. I just needed to say it.


Challenge #2 is up on Challenge Me Happy, and the designers have done a fantabulous job again! This time we have a colour challenge. I would be so happy if YOU would participate! This time the winner gets a Tim Holtz die kindly sponsored by Scottie Crafts! This is my take on the challenge:


Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to everyone who takes time to leave a comment. I’m really bad at that myself! Have a lovely weekend!

    Stunning page and its great that you are happy with your ‘lot’ in life Annelie…we all should stop and think just how good our life is now and then, instead of growing about what we havn’t got. Thanks for reminding me just how great my life is as well….I needed a reminder tonight! šŸ™‚

    What a nice read. It’s good to list all that stuff sometimes and realize just how lucky we all are, and not to focus on small negatives:)
