Gratitude: in the Christmas spirit

Today I’m grateful for…

Finally feeling the real joy and excitement of Christmas while baking Lebküchen from my Gran’s recipe, the boys helping out in their Christmas aprons, the smell of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and cloves filling the air, with Christmas music drifting through the house.


Watching “The Little Prince” at the cinema, with my youngest son cuddling on my lap, feeling my chest tight with love.

Memories of Christmases past – and fondly remembering many loved ones now deceased.
