“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” — Marcel Proust
Things I Love Thursday is an idea created by the inimitable Gala Darling. In 2007 she began creating a list every Thursday, sharing links, people and experiences that she had fallen in love with that week. All over the internet people the idea was passed around: everyone loved the concept of celebrating appreciation and thankfulness together and began creating their own lists… This is mine!
This week has been a little trying. I have RSI and it has been playing up since late last week. I’ve been wearing a wrist support on my right hand and taking it easy. Driving is sort of painful, and I’ve been doing my best to limit my computer usage (though this is pretty hard at work!). Due to this, I’m feeling extra thankful for all of the wonderful people in my life who have been, and continue to be really supportive of me: helping me carry things; open things; doing duties I have difficulty with; kind words… You get the picture!
♥ My amazing friend Paul is a fantastic cheerer; somehow he manages to text me whenever I really need a friendly word. He even replies when I’m whining and moaning about nothing: he’s a superstar right?
♥ The lovely Malin, who has been baking up several storms of deliciousness, as well as single-handedly tackling the ever-increasing piles of washing-up this week..!
♥ Two of my co-workers crack me up on a daily basis, but it feels like they’ve been putting on an extra special show of hilarity this week. They’re both totally awesome and I love their crazy banter ever so much.
Do you write a Things I Love Thursday or gratitude list? If not, what would you write on it this week? If so, please share it with me!
