Be thankful, be grateful, be happy

Hello everyone,  I hope you are all well.  This post has come a little bit later than I had planned but it has been a busy week, nothing new there though.  I thought I would write a few words whilst I wait for my spiced apple cake to finish baking in the oven.

I have had one of those weeks where you are reminded of how fragile life can be.  You go about your daily business not really noticing life around you and then all of a sudden you may hear or see something that jolts you back into reality, you realise how lucky you are to have a home, a job, you are thankful for your health, your friends and your family.  You realise that life is too short to be unhappy,  a reminder to be positive for which I am grateful for.

I do not know whether you have heard it but one of my favourite songs at the moment is “let her go” by Passenger, I have added the words so you can read what it is about;

Well you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her goOnly know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you’ll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast

You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you’ll understand why
Everything you touch, surely dies

But you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
‘Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast

Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
‘Cause you loved her too much and you dive too deep

Well you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go
Oh oh oh no
And you let her go
Oh oh oh no
Well you let her go

‘Cause you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

‘Cause you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go

For me it is about not realising what you have until it is gone, I particularly like the words :-

Hoping one day you’ll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast

It is good to have a dream, everyone should have a dream, but in reality dreams do come and go, we focus on them so hard that we miss all the good and positive things that surround us each and every day and so today I am absolutely thankful, grateful and happy with my lot.

Must go now, my cake is ready to come out of the oven but…..

Thank you for reading xx
