Appreciation


It's the little things in life that really count. It's also the little things that we take for granted until they aren't there. The uncomfortable bed that feels so good after sleeping on tree roots and uneven ground. The barely edible food from the cookhouse that tastes like cordon-bleu cuisine after a week on boil in the bag rations. A tepid shower after washing from a mess tin. Comfortable trainers and clean socks after army boots.

All too quickly though the bed feels uncomfortable, the food loses it appeal, the shower feels oh so cold.

We forget all too quickly how lucky we are and the conditions that we have "suffered" are everyday life for many.

This is very true. We do not appreciate things after we get used to it quickly, while overlooking or ignoring those things that we do not often 'suffer'. Good post there, keep it up!

I have really enjoyed reading through this blog. One thing that has intrigued me, did you create the pictures? They are quality!

The pictures are images from the net that I manipulate to make my own. If only I could draw them myself.
