A Gratitude List

19:00 Sarah McDonald 14 Comments



It's New Years Eve so I thought I'd make a list of things I'm grateful for.


1. My beautiful baby girl.
2. My partner - he does so much for Lily and I. I am so thankful for him. Mostly I'm grateful that he is an incredible father to Lily.
3. My mum
4. My friends & Family.
5. My health and well being. Ironically, I am actually sick at the moment, but I am generally a healthy person.
6. Yoga
7. For a healthier lifestyle these days.
8. For everything I have, even the simple things like a place to live and a bed to sleep in.
9. Air Conditioning - it's Summer here and I have to say the air con has been a life saver. I don't cope well in the heat.
10. For you reading this! Seriously, it's absolutely crazy that my blog is actually of interest to anyone. So thank you!.
11. Food.
12. Photos.
13. For my blog.
14.  Churro's
15. I live in a safe country.
16. Cuddles with Lily. Especially when she initiates the hugs.
17. Hugs
18. Hot showers.
19. Kisses.
20. Lily's smiles and giggles.
21.  For my happiness.
22. That we can provide Lily everything she needs.
23. Ice coffees
24. The Internet.
25. Access to health care. It breaks my heart to think there are millions of people who do not have access to health care.
26. A support network.
27. Toilet paper. I know it's a weird one. But seriously, who isn't grateful for toilet paper.
28. Puns. I love a good pun.
29. Netflix
30. Hot chocolates.
31. The Mornings when Brad and I play with Lily on the bed.
32. Lovely weather.
33. The night sky - It's so beautiful.
34. Sleep
35. When Lily sleeps (which lately is a rarity as she is teething)
36. Music.
37. Tooth paste and a tooth brush.
38. Vaccinations - Seriously it makes me so happy that Lily can get vaccinations to prevent her from dying from illness' such as whooping couch.
39. People that understand me.
40. Going ages without talking to someone, but when you speak it's like you talked yesterday.
41. Animals.
42. Quality time.
43. Cute workout clothes.
44. Not feeling like I have to wear makeup everyday.
45. That I got to spend Christmas with my loved ones.
46. Scented Candles.
47. Giant Coffee Mugs
48. Date Nights
49. Kind strangers.
50. When I wake up and the baby is still asleep!

  4. Some wonderful things to be grateful for! After travelling more in 2015 I was certainly more grateful for living in a country where we really don't have to worry much about our safety. Churros are also a fantastic thing to be grateful for :D

    1. It's so sad knowing the simple things we can take for granted are things some people don't have access to. Churro's are so good!

  7. "When I wake up and the baby is still asleep." I used to nanny for a living and this is to true! Even now I wake up an extra hour before my boyfriend and that extra time to enjoy coffee in peace is all I need. I'm so happy you have so many wonderful things in your life!

    1. It's so nice to just have an hour to yourself in the morning to just do whatever you want, or nothing. Coffee is also a requirement. Speaking of babies waking, mine just woke haha. Thanks for commenting.
