I am participating in Gratitude Week 2017 which is hosted by the very lovely Michelle at  It is for one week and open to anyone.

Next Goldilocks went upstairs, where she found three beds. There was a great big bed, a middle-sized bed and a tiny little bed. By now she was feeling rather tired. so she climbed into the big bed and lay down. The big bed was very hard and far too big. Then she tried the middle-sized bed, but that was far too soft. so she climbed into the tiny little bed. It was neither too hard nor too soft. In fact, it felt just right, all cosy and warm. and in no tine at all Goldilocks fell fast asleep.

Today’s gratitude post may seem a little silly.  But when I woke up this first very cold day of the season, I couldn’t help but feel grateful for the luxury of my bed.  I had a few moments of wonderful meditation as I noted the comfy down pillow covered in whisper soft fabric that cooled my cheek, the cuddly quilt that was keeping my body toasty warm as I listened to the cold wind whip around outside, and the splendor of having a mattress that is “just right”.

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. LoL, Bernadette! Although staying in a lovely place while traveling this week, there’s just nothing quite like my own bed with special comfy back mattress, fluffy (allergen free) pillows, & multiple warm blankies. I, too, am grateful! ✨💨✨😴✨💨✨

  2. Bernadette, I got quite excited here. I do this every winter morning, feel blessed for the softness and comfort of my bed and duvet. Furthermore, a quick dash to put the heating higher and then under the duvet a little bit longer…….just to make sure I know how blessed I am. 🦋💕


  3. Hi Bernadette – This isn’t silly at all. Occasionally, when I enjoy languishing in the bed feeling nothing but comfort and peace, I occurs to me that there are too many mornings in which I’m jumping out of bed and into the day so fast that I miss the transition from sleep to wakefulness. It IS something to be grateful about – thanks for the reminder!


  4. Delightful, Bernadette! 🙂 Filled with gratitude as I sit here by the wood stove all comfy and warm while cold and daunting winds whip through the trees outside. Grateful that our power is still on, and thinking warming thoughts for many in our state have lost theirs today.
