Count your blessings - June 2020

  1. Waking up after more than 8 hours sleep
  2. Observing a little naked boy in play in a tiny bit of water
  3. Walking Beertje back to school, babbling hand in hand, after 11.5 weeks at home
  4. An employer who isn't pushing anyone to return to the office if that doesn't feel comfortable...even if this means the vast majority of the personnel continues to work from home in the next 3 months.
  5. Rain...multiple days with rain!
  6. Walking in the sunshine along quiet streets on Sunday morning to get fresh bread and buns from the bakery
  7. Spending time with family again for the first time in 3 months and having a cosy drink outside in the garden
  8. The children that "build a camp" in grandma's garden and clearly enjoy rediscovering the big space available
  9. Both boys return full time to school
  10. The first evening out for dinner
  11. Eating outside in the garden
  12. Weekends with no plans whatsoever
  13. Backing up old pictures and seeing so many old memories again
  14. Gratitude for that minority of people that wears face masks inside stores. Thank you for caring for my health.
  15. Friends coming over for dinner
  16. Being out at work for a project
  17. A freshly cleaned-out car  and the ironing pile at home completely gone
  18. Walking along the fields and observing preying birds
  19. Sausage with cheese inside

This is a monthly list of simple things in my life that make me happy or that make me smile.  
As the world often seems full of negativity and disaster, I want to pay attention to these small things that make me happy in my daily life and be grateful for them. You can find all of them via this link
