Gratitude

Every day I express gratitude for everything I have in my life and have been doing that for a long time now.  Today I was really pleased because I even found a reason to feel gratitude towards my ex-husband. If you read the post I wrote a couple of months ago you will know that I was in an abusive marriage for more than 15 years so that has taken a long time to do!

I was draught-proofing my back door earlier and felt a few pangs of loneliness as is only natural occasionally. Then I thought that being in that relationship for nearly 20 years in total has made me a lot stronger and if I came through that alive anything else is a piece of cake. So I found a way to be grateful for the abuse that I suffered – maybe that sounds weird but it feels a whole lot better than being resentful.
