As a cosmic counter-balance to yesterday's outpouring, this is what I find myself grateful for today:
That there is a writer such as Judy Blume, whose books I devoured as an eleven year old, whose books I now give to my eleven year old to read. A girl's rite of passage.
That tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it.
That at the end of every day, my little family all come home.
That I have health. Whilst I may not always have comfort, I have health.
That boys will be boys; as consistent as the tide.
That there is coffee.

That there are memories. I had lots of old photos scanned for my Mum's forthcoming 70th birthday; this is her! How cool is she?!
That when I wake and look to my side in the mornings, he is there, he still rocks my world after twenty years.

That I can now cook a repertoire of winter meals; pies, crumbles and bakes.
That there is such a thing as letterpress. Paper loveliness that can make my heart flutter and the fact that I can utilise it for L'Apothecary designs :-)
That some people still dress to look sharp.
It's my husband's birthday tomorrow, we are having dinner with our best friends so I am looking forward to a night of laughter and good food. Thank you so much for your comments to my last post - as ever, wisdom pours out of blog readers.
Have a delicious weekend!
