This week I am joining in with for-the-birds-blog.com in listing seven things I am grateful for! See their beautiful post here.

My seven gratitudes this week:

1. Haircuts!

Everyone in my household was in desperate need of a haircut, and this week we went to our local hairdressers who were so accommodating with my little ones, especially my youngest, who was having his second haircut ever and freaked out a little. Now they look gorgeous! So pleased with mine as well. Love a fresh haircut!

2. Activism

I’m thankful I live in a democracy where protests, marches and peaceful assemblies are legal. Today I’m joining the Mums 4Refugees contingent at our IWD march to raise the profile of a whole host of issues, but the treatment of women and men in offshore detention in particular. 

3. Coffee

I couldn’t get by without my cup (or two, or three!) of daily joe. Ah, caffeine. 

4. Work

This last fortnight I’ve had quite a bit of work, which has been very helpful for the household budget and reduced a bit of financial stress for us.

5. The park!

The park is a lifesaver. We have a huge one nearby where we can feed ducks, go for a stroll, play on the playground and let off a bit of steam. 

6. Podcasts

Podcasts have opened up a whole new world for me, and I’m finding new ones all the time. Currently my favourite is Exvangelical.

7. Husband

I feel very fortunate that I married someone who is such a team player. The nature of our lifestyle is that one of us is often at work and the other is at home looking after kids and running the household. He steps into either role with confidence and picks up the slack, no questions asked. I’m grateful for him in this season of life.

And I’d love to hear your 7 gratitudes! What are you thankful for this week?
