This weekend I'm grateful for peace and calm

Hello, strangers- yes, I've been MIA in the Real World. Funny how three weeks of "not working" was harder work than "working". I was actually quite looking forward to starting The New Job. And, I'm pleased to say, I really enjoyed the week!

The Maxabella-inspired Grateful Post brings me back to the Blogosphere. It's certainly been a week- and month- in which I've been counting my blessings. So this weekend, as they say in the classic blogs, I'm grateful for:

Peace: my friend T writes about living as an expat in Bahrain on her blog From Melbourne to Manama. Check out her posts this week about living through the protests there.

Calm: of the seismologic variety, in this part of the world. Christchurch, I am thinking of you. Again, but much more.

What a lovely post.

I think the whole world needs peace and calm. Seems at every turn there's another natural disaster. I'm personally hoping and praying this is it for a loooong time.

Glad you're enjoying your new job. It's overwhelming, but exciting at the same time! Yes, the world is a bit of a tragedy at the moment. Or is it just me.. but are things getting worse?

So pleased that 'week one' went so well. I'm looking froward to hearing about it on your blog.

I know what you mean about a 'home holiday' not being a holiday at all!!!! x

Thinking of all of these events just makes me think of how much we need our communities...we need each other so much during disasters...we are so fortunate to have the opportunity to help our communities grow strong so they are prepared emotionally for anything that may happen!

Hi Thanks for stopping by Planet Baby with Allison's rewind. I'm now following you. Yes, Mother Nature really needs to take a rest. Those poor Christchurchers have had too much too bear. J x
