This is my captured moment from last Boxing Day.
To be honest in the run up to Christmas last year, for different reasons, none of us were in great shape. It had been a difficult time and we planned to have a quieter Christmas than usual. We managed to survive Christmas Day and resolved to make it better next year.
We spent the day after quietly, all doing our own thing and bemoaning that that there was nothing worth watching on television. Then something magical happened, it began to snow.
A lovely neighbour text to say how excited she was and eventually we, with most of the other neighbours, made it outside and three snowmen were built! It was a wonderful impromptu gathering where we chatted and laughed together! It was a precursor to New Year’s Eve and new traditions beginning!
I took this picture just after receiving the text and I suddenly realised how lucky we really are. Both of our lovely girls were, not only here at home, they are healthy, polite, respectful and hardworking. They both are thriving as new girls in university and school. We were spending Christmas together in our new home, with our new neighbours and with plenty of delicious food!
This photograph captured the moment that I became thankful!
Please ignore the wonky Christmas Tree, this year’s will be better!
Such a gorgeous badge!
Have a lovely day!
