Today I am grateful for...

 WORK... and my husband

This is such a beautiful and inspiring blog link that this week I just had to join in. Maxabella Loves and several, a heap, ALOT of gorgeous writers blog about what they are grateful for each Saturday. I think this is such a beautiful way to end the week and start the weekend. To reflect on the weeks activities, feelings, lessons and emotions and really dig deep and take notice of those special moments, people, things that we are grateful for.

 ~ So today I am grateful for work ~

Along with his full time job my husband is the maintenance guy/gardener for my bosses beach house down the coast. So every Saturday he goes down and works on their house and garden. Today I went with him as we haven't seen each other all week so every moment I can get with him I grab! This meant I got to spend a beautiful morning on the beach while Rob got to work. Each Saturday I would get a little frustrated when he didn't get home until 2.00 or 3.00 in the afternoon and I could never understand why it took so long to 'mow a lawn'. But he works his magic down there. He mows and hedges and prunes and weeds and perfects this garden like an art piece. I was in awe watching him as he turned this messy over grown garden and yard into a green beach side heaven. He has such an amazing talent for landscaping and gardening and it just blew me away. I even got inspired and motivated to help out however after blowing all the leaves from the back and front garden I was GONE! Ready for a swim and lunch and a sleep I sat down to read and Rob kept going for another 3 hours! He's a machine!

So today I am grateful for work. It really proved to me that I have such a hard working and talented husband and today's work allowed us to spend some beautiful quality time laughing, playing and working hard together in the most gorgeous workplace of all...the beach!

Have a beautiful weekend Everyone

That's so lovely! I have often found myself glancing longingly at landscape gardeners going about their day... I think I would like to be one when I grow up!!

Thanks for joining in this week. You're right - it's lovely to reflect on the week and it's lovely to visit other blogs that are grateful too. My favourite bloggy time of the week for sure!! x

2 gorgeous things...your wedding dress!!! OMG, love it! The other is the view from the beach house?! I thought it was really lovely that you appreciated how hard he works, it's a public holiday here in Doha today and my husband is in at the office, you've provided a timely reminder to be grateful rather than resentful. Great blog, I'm your newest follower, come over and see me at 4 kids, 20 suitcases and a beagle any time! Kirsty (Shamozal)
