Gathering #Gratitude in February #MondayBlog #Inspiration

What are you grateful for?

J.C. McKenzie

This February I’m filled with gratitude knowing my youngest daughter is returning to live on the coast at the end of the month. She’s been living in a small, border town in the middle of the country miles and miles away. (i.e., Saskatchewan and we live in B.C.)

I hate it when my kids are far away. Yeah, I know they’re both all grown up, independent, strong women with good partners and families of their own, but they are still my babies and I always will be. I rest better knowing they’re close.

I cherish the opportunity of becoming a greater part of my grandbabies’ lives. I also cherish that my girls will be closer to each other again and their families will grow up with cousins near by. I have great memories of playing with my cousins in Sault Ste Marie. Never a dull moment!

So my big gratitude statement for this month is one about family.

Whenever I think about JC’s upcoming move my heart swells and a sense of overwhelming peace flows through me.

I am so blessed and grateful beyond words.

The eclectic crew of ghosts that haunt her head spill onto the page in two series: The Gambling Ghosts and The Ghost & Abby Mysteries. A Viking with existential issues, a broken hearted Highlander, a Casanova man-witch and a Pirate with a secret are just a few of the males her strong heroines encounter in tales of fantasy, adventure and romance. A firm believer in the magic of our everyday lives, Jo-Ann loves watching sunrises, walking beaches near her home in the Pacific Northwest and reading by the fire.

    1. Thanks Susan,
      I’d love them right next door of course, but having them in the same province is pretty cool. My oldest is five hours (a drive and a ferry boat trip) away and while JC will temporarily be thirty minutes away, she will probably end up in a different city a few hours away. But like I said, I’m thrilled to have them both on the coast. Nothing matters more to me.
      I love it when you post pictures of your grandson. He’s so cute.
      Thanks for sharing in my joy.
