31 Days of Gratitude – Day 24

It’s 70 mins to Christmas as I write this. It’s my last Christmas in my 40’s.😜 It doesn’t bother me though. I am really looking forward to my 50’s because I know that it will be my best decade yet! Knowing how many people who were my age or younger that passed from covid over the last 2 years and knowing that my son’s dad was only 43 when he passed from a heart attack, I see it is as an absolute blessing and privilage to reach this new milestone. I am so grateful to be here right now.

Messing around today when I realised it was my last Christmas in my 40’s

I missed yesterday’s post because I accidently fell asleep very early. I was exhausted because the christmas puddings were only done at 3am.🙈 That will teach me to not pay attention to the time before I start mixing. I was going to write about how excited I was because it was my last day of work for the year. It has been a long year with many ups and downs. I am grateful that I have made it through and especially for the lessons, the love, the people who have entered my life and for those who have left. It has been a good year overall.

I picked up my Christmas cake from my niece today. I buy one from her every year because she is a talented baker. This year she decorated it differently. It is so beautiful. I haven’t been able to capture how beautiful the shimmer effect is but I hope you get the idea in this little video. It was definitely one of the highlights of my day! Thank you Courtney! The other highlight was seeing her adorable son! He is such a happy little soul. She and her husband have done such a wonderful job raising him thus far.

That’s it for today. Thank you for joining me on this little journey through December. I appreciate your support. I hope you all have yourselves a very merry Christmas🎵🎶🎵

  1. It is nice to have a talented baker, the cake looks awesome and delicious. 50’s are not bad. I have enjoyed my 50’s. Your post made me realize I will be 60 next Christmas.. gosh I do not feel like I have lived that long. Have a Merry Christmas.
