What are you thankful for right now?

After it’s debut on Mamamia last month, this has quickly become one of the most popular posts I do and one I find myself thinking about all week.

It’s inspired by the delightful ThxThxThx blog, “a daily exercise in gratitude” where US creative director Leah Dietrich writes a daily thank-you note to something in her life.

Sitting with my kids and going through their hair painstakingly every night was annoying at first but I quickly came to appreciate the quiet time to just be with them and have a chat.
