I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something you can be thankful for..no matter how simple it is.
Star Wars cookie cutters
Loving these awesome cookie cutters that arrived in the mail from Grandma & Granddad last week. Loving even more that they arrived on a day I was going to make gingerbread anyway - boom! Loving how easy they were to use and that they actually turned out looking like the real deal.
How awesome are these 2 first-time parents? When I found this the other day, I couldn't believe it. I used to work with these two at Learning Media a few years back, and only found this by accident. After moving to Sydney, they found themselves with a lot of time and extra boxes on their hands, so they turned their lounge into the set of many famous movies with their wee baby boy, renamed for better effect. Some are incredibly clever.

Parents of the Caribbean
Advance warning: this is a little hard to watch. But powerful all the same. Do we really know how fortunate we are to grow up in a loving home, free from fear, full of love? And as my dear friend Sammy put it on Facebook: every single child deserves a loving childhood. End of story.
Down syndrome video
On a lovelier note,this film is just so beautiful. Made to tell a worried expectant mum what to expect from her new life with a Down Syndrome baby. So so beautiful. Even more so that it's spoken in what I believe to be the most bee-yoo-tee-ful language known to man - Italian.
