I Am Blessed beyond Measure

Other

I have a caring neighbour on both sides of me

I have two beautiful, loving daughters in law

I have two caring, generous, loving sons

I have 3 grandchildren as lovely as their parents

What do I need with material possessions?

No, I don't have a partner and I often miss the closeness of a relationship, but how can I possibly complain at my lot in life. I just hope I can return even a fraction of the care I receive.

One neighbour is a young woman with 3 children, the other a single 20+ and they text regularly and offer to get me shopping. Whenever I feel low I try to concentrate on what I have, not what I haven't. For my part I make them cakes lol!

Lynibis I'm glad you have a balanced life and probably luckier than a lot more individuals. (I'm also glad that you can't return a 'facture' though - blooming auto correct!!! 😄) I can't lie.....I still want to know how you fobbed off the neighbour who wanted to make you food?

Ha ha, yes I will edit that to fraction!

Actually, after reading the comments on my topic about the meal I decided I was going to swallow my pride and graciously accept the meal. In the event it was absolutely delicious, cooked by her husband while she was at work. He delivered it plated up with a separate mini jug of gravy.

Yes, I am extremely lucky with family and friends although I have had my share of tragedy and misery in the past. I just wanted to prompt people into concentrating on the good things they have and not dwell too much on the not so good.

Lynibis I'm pleased that you had second thoughts and that the food was good. Fingers crossed that our daily routines/lives will soon improve too and that the negative things will seem less important.

I think that is such a positive attitude, I think the last year has brought home to us how precious friends and family are, and it's so easy to dwell on the negative.

Fantastic that you have such good neighbours.
