I think it’s important to be grateful.

I think it’s important for me to embrace my life as it is. But still aim for bigger and better things.

I think you should do the same.

I think that friends are important but family is essential.

I think that friends can be your family sometimes.

I think I am lucky to be alive, in this place in time with the gifts I have.

I think that sometimes you are better off staying up late to get what you need to do done.

I think you and I are luckier than we know.

I think letting your dog poop on my yard is lazy.

I think I get distracted by stuff outside my window too easily.

I think I love my husband more today than the day I married him.

I think yesterday, it was less.

I think my family are a blessing that I’ll never stop saying thank you for.

I think life is a big, fat gift with the biggest of ribbons on top.

I think if you’re wasting it resting on your laurels, you need to be kicked in the shins.


I think this post is done.

    If my husband’s name is Laurel, then can I rest on it? 😛

    • Yes. But you get a shin kick anyway for such a Dad joke. 😛

    • And hang on, isn’t Laurel a girls name!?

      • Technically, yes. But my name is traditionally a boy’s name so I’m sure there’s a male Laurel out there somewhere 😛

  • I think friends like you are a GIFT x

    I think you are AMAZING!
    I think messages like these come at just the right time.
    I think sometimes we like to pretend we don’t know it but I think in the end it can’t be ignored forever.
    I think I’d like to thank you and I think I love this blog more every day – Yep, I think even more than yesterday xox

    • Thank you! OMG this is so lovely. Have a great day, you’ve just made mine. 😀

  • I think that this is exactly the type of post I needed to read right now.
    I think you are pretty amazing.
    Thank you.

    • I’m glad it was what you needed to hear. Thank you Natalie. You are so welcome.

  • “life is a big, fat gift”.
