Thankful Thursday

This morning I didn't think I would join up with Kate as I was't feeling incredibly thankful for anything.  Tired,  aspy boy being aspy and well, basically having a bit of a pity party for myself.

Then I read Kate's post and Carmen's post and realised I wasn't alone and for that I was grateful.  But then my friend Jayne put a link up on twitter for an article on The Drum regarding Tony Abbott's view of asylum seekers.

It was then I remembered just how much I do have to be thankful for.  I live in a country that is safe.  It's politics may be somewhat fucked up *read said article*.  It may have loads of small minded, racist, xenophobes but at the end of the day my life and the lives of my loved ones is not at risk.   

And for that I am truly thankful

Joining Kate who says stuff

Hear hear :) Any time I throw a pity party (which, it must be said, is quite often) I think about this...and it somehow brings it all back into perspective. That man is abhorrent :(

What a great photo btw! They look like they are having so much fun :)

It can be hard to find the silver lining sometimes - but we are lucky to live here and not face the hardships that so many others face on a daily basis. Hope things get better for you soon!
