a week of gratefuls

This week I took a photo each day of something that I was grateful for. 
 Linking up with 'Maxabella loves..' 

monday: card tricks with my eldest son. The rest of the family were away for 2 nights in various locations.
Grateful to have time with Nick.

  tuesday: Tea with a friend who is having treatment for breast cancer. 
She is doing really well. 
I'm grateful for that.

Wednesday: I'm always so amazed at how beautiful (and practical) spider webs are.
This one was stretched across the porch & attached to the front door.
I'm grateful that I saw it before i walked into it!

thursday:  On Thursdays I take my niece & nephews to school & preschool.
 I'm so glad I can help out. I'm very grateful that my boys have lovely cousins.

friday: Grateful for the beautiful spring weather. So good to get out in it!
Have a lovely weekend.
