The Weekly Smile is a round-up of gratitude, held by my friend Trent. This week I have so much to be grateful for. We visited my daughter’s new school last week, and that was a very good experience. Of course that makes me smile. We both believe that it is going to be great in every way. I appreciate the small classes, friendly atmosphere, and weekly swim lessons the most.
Yesterday we looked at an apartment closer to her school and my job. Not only was the apartment very charming, the owner of the house turned out to be a wonderful person. I think we both made a new friend. We stayed at our new house for 4 hours talking to this wonderful lady. I am so relieved that we’ve found the perfect place to live, or maybe rather the perfect place to live found us. It is wonderful to not have to think more about that, especially with the holidays approaching.
There’s been a lot of paperwork for me to do these first weeks after coming home from 8 years abroad. In between paperwork, and long walks to celebrate the fresh air (the photos in this post is from today’s walk,) and visits with relatives, my daughter and I have been doing a lot of baking, and reading. Walks in beautiful nature, baking and reading are all activities that keep me grounded and in balance. I am filled with gratitude as I am writing this post.
What makes you smile this week? Share some of your smiles!
