Appreciation Day 14/28

Half way through my 28 days of appreciation!

Discovered a nice little cafe.

Super friendly service and great coffee!

Hope to be back again next time I am in town.

Appreciation Day 13/28

My almost 11 year old niece is an aspiring opera singer.

There are certain times of the day when she will most definitely be flexing her vocals.

I appreciate children’s unabashed passion for what they enjoy and their ability to just be in the moment anytime, any day and anywhere.

Appreciation Day 12/28

On a warm, sunny winter’s day, we went to fetch my niece from school.

There were pretty spring flowers along the way, and it was lovely to see all the happy faces coming out of school after a busy day.

Most of all, to see that one special little face emerge, happy and excited that I get to come and fetch her from school.

Appreciation Day 11/28

I showed my niece Chloe my recent drawings, and she said, I want to watch you draw.

So I drew a doodle of myself, then she said, now add a sunflower next to you!

She told me that she is my sunflower, always smiling.

I am thankful to have this little girl in my life.

Appreciation Day 9/28

I have joined the backpack brigade.

After complaining about a sore back, my daughter suggested I try using a small backpack on my days off and travel days to alleviate the stress on my shoulders.

And now I love my backpack!
