It’s BLOGMAS: 10 things I am thankful for this December

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog, where blogmas is in full swing!

There have been so many posts of blogmas ideas and inspiration, I read through so many and they were so helpful. I must credit this blogmas post idea to Saz. Her blog is beautiful and if you are struggling for blogmas inspiration, check her ideas post. I thought that this post was such a lovely topic to write about, reflect on how lucky we all are, there is always so much to be grateful for.

I am thankful for:

  1. I have my family around me and we have several family days planned over the holidays. I am very fortunate to have a loving and supportive family around me.
  2. I am in a lucky position to be able to buy gifts for my family, although Christmas isn’t about presents but I love to treat my family and enjoy shopping for others.
  3. I am thankful for the NHS and the fact that they have looked after my mum when she needed it this year and helping with my knee injury and continued recovery.
  4. Cosy blankets and pjs. Its cold outside and love to be all snuggled up especially on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day watching movies and exchanging presents.
  5. Love, to be loved by my family and to be able to show my family how much I love them. I am lucky enough to have a Christmas filled love.
  6. The lovely treats that come out over Christmas, its never too early to have treats. Plus Christmas dinner is always my favourite.
  7. Laughter, I will have a Christmas filled with laughter, playing games and being in a position where I feel that I can laugh.
  8. Having my family around me and they are and will be safe, healthy and happy.
  9. Music, I love listening to music all year round, however at Christmas there are all the traditional songs and certain songs bring back memories. Its so nice to hear them every year.
  10. Christmas decorations and being able to make my home look Christmassy.

I am so thankful for these things and many more. Its all about the little things that make a Christmas. I am in no way bragging, I understand that Christmas isn’t always a positive time for people or families, but no matter what the time of year, there is always something to be thankful. I would like to know what you are thankful for this December, so leave the top 5 things you are thankful for in the comments.

I hope you are enjoying blogmas! See you soon

  1. I really enjoyed this too. I think it’s important to take some time and be thankful for what we have, even if it’s not much. Thank you for the lovely post! Also, I know when I ask questions of my readers, I get kind of disappointed when no one responds. I’m a people pleaser with low self-esteem. I can’t help it, lol! So 5 things/ people I’m grateful for this Christmas:

    1- My husband.
    2- I will get to see my 2 year old niece actually understanding what is happening this year
    3- being able to go home to see my family
    4- reconnecting with old friends
    5- having a job with sick benefits and a drug plan.

  2. Love this post! I love hearing about gratefulness and bringing out the positive things! It’s amazing to let it all out there! I do a monthly blessings post on my own blog similar to this! Great post! I was also blessed this year to be able to buy presents and it has been the best experience!
