#TheGallery - I'm Grateful For...

There is a lot of talk in the bloggiverse at the moment about the Save the Children campaign to raise awareness of the issue of childhood vaccinations ahead of the Global Vaccination Summit. Millions of children are dying from preventable illnesses every year. Save the Children are asking us - that's me and you - to make a lot of noise, sign the petition and  pass it on  to encourage World Leaders to plug the funding gap. They have even picked three respected bloggers - Christine Mosler, Lindsay Atkin and Tracey Cheetham - to talk about the campaign from the front line. As you read this they are in Mozambique, following the journey of the vaccine from cold-store to rural clinic. You can follow their journey on Facebook .

So this week curator of The Gallery,  Tara Cain over at Sticky Fingers has asked us to think about what we are grateful for.

Well I am grateful for a lot of things. I had a decent start in life, it wasn't easy but I think it prepared me well. I have had many opportunities to try new things, go places, experience life. I have had the chance to study what I wanted to. I have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, food in my belly. When I am sick there are people to help me get better and when I am struggling to cope with what life is throwing at me there are friends and family to pick me back up and keep my spirits lifted. I have a partner who loves me and a cat who has stayed by my side for 16 years!

But I am most grateful for having been given the chance to be a mummy to the most amazing little person in the world :)
