Some months back I Discovered Gratitude.
It's not that I didn't thank people before, although I was always bad at sending thank you notes as a child, something I still feel a little guilty about, & I'm wondering if that's the reason that my Godmother dropped me after I turned 21.
But I never much thought about actually Being Grateful. I just grabbed as much as I could.
Nowadays, I'm still a grabber, but a Grateful One.
It all started when a colleague at school told me that her mother writes down five things that she's grateful for every day in a special book. I immediately loved the idea & began doing it myself. And, when a few months later this woman had some kind of Brain Aneurysm & nearly died I was undaunted. Admittedly, I stopped doing it for a little while, but since I found out that Oprah does it too, I'm Back on Track.
So I'm posting these snaps taken freshly today by my Default Schoolgirl Photographer Happy, to show off my Magnificant Houndstooth 'Simona' coat which was given to me by The Duchess' Mother- in-Love, Joy. Thank You Ladies. Such a wonderful thing !
