Afternoon Tea

Take a look at this mandala tote painted by one of the ladies from my creativity group. Isn't it amazing!

After the kids finished school today we sat round our kitchen table eating afternoon tea and chatting about the events of the day. I realized how well my children are coping with growing up and what lovely people they are. I really appreciated the time we had just 'to be' with each other. So much so, I'm starting a new label for posts describing things that I am thankful for. One thing I am learning from my mentors and books I'm reading is that being grateful for something every day, even the small things, gives you a much happier outlook on life and gives you a mental lift. A bit like art really!
