30 Day Writing Challenge - Day Twelve

"Write about five blessings in your life."

They always say "count your blessings" but I never really have before. Guess now is a good time to do that. Here are five blessings in my life.

1- My Family.

Probably the most obvious answer I am going to give. Jordan, Vala and Flynn are the biggest blessings in my life. I couldn't imagine a life without them in it and I don't even want to try. I am so incredibly blessed to have such an amazing, beautiful family. I'm so thankful to have them.

2- My extended family.

By extended family, I mean my parents, siblings, sibling in-laws, grandparents, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncle, cousins, second cousins etc. Most of them are back home in Australia but they still show they care about me and my family and it means the world to me that they're still there for me despite the huge distance between us.

3- My in-laws.

I guess I'm lucky enough to have two sets of in-laws. I have Jordan's family as well as my ex-husbands family. I'm blessed to have them all in my life. My ex-in-laws, are always still there for me and Vala and support us any way they can. Jordan's parents care about us greatly and do everything they can to ensure our lives continue to improve. I'm very blessed to have such wonderful in-laws.

4- My friends.

I don't have nearly as many friends as I used to back in Australia but now it's more of a case of quality over quantity. And I have some of the greatest friends ever. I have friends I've never met because they live overseas but whom were there for me throughout my divorce and continue to show their love and support to this day. And I have friends whom I see regularly and hang out with that I know always have my back and are there for me whenever I need them. I'm very blessed to have so many people who care about me and my family.

5- My health.

Whilst my mental health may not be great at the moment, I'm still grateful to physically be healthy and well. My gestational diabetes did disappear after Flynn was born and besides my weight issues, the rest of me is fit as a fiddle. Given all the health scares and issues affecting people I care about around me, I am reminded that I am blessed to have such good health at this current time. Something I won't take for granted. 

I'm sure if I thought harder, I couldn't think of a lot more blessings in my life but there are just five of the biggest ones.

Until next time,
