Getting started / November 1st

06 Nov

Sometime ago, my lovely friend Sue from choir, shared a link to a blog called Three Beautiful Things. I loved it, and the idea, and resolved to record three things every day that have given me pleasure. I decided to start on November 1st but it’s taken me until now to get up and running – but I have been keeping notes so here goes:

Tuesday 1st Nov

1  Delighted that our phone and broadband have been mended today. It has been surprisingly hard to do without.

2 We had a walk up to Wheal Coates, in cold bright sunshine. The sea was turquoise, waves were crashing beneath us and the raw energy in the air put springs in our steps.

3 We Skyped with our Grandchildren in London. For the first time, Tabitha, 7 months old, recognised us and beamed and clapped her hands with delight. She kept looking from one to the other and grinning. That gave us both enormous pleasure as it does to have delightful conversations with Jake. KJ gets the odd word in!

    I came to your first post as I was curious at your inspiration for naming three good things per day. I see now. It’s a highly positive passtime 🙂

    Re Skype, I haven’t even learned how to do that yet, myself. Great one, Grandma! And I can imagine how difficult it was without the internet, yes. It would stunt my growth! No, stunt a child’s growth actually, not having the internet “these days”. But yes, I love to lock into it and visit blogs, see other lives, so I’d be sorry without it.

      It is highly positive and forces the focus on to the good things even on days that have seemed less than brilliant. That can only be a good thing. Thank you for your comments, WordsFallFromMyEyes.

      Skype really is brilliant! With family all over the world, it’s quite easy (and free) to talk to them.
