Nephew ~ Thankful Tuesday

It’s time for Thankful Tuesday again and today I want to share my love and how thankful I am to have my little nephew (my brothers son) in my life.

He is a constant ray of sunshine and even on my hardest days he always makes me smile. He is turning 2 years old in February and I still remember the first time I saw him. He was so tiny. He was born 6 weeks to early and gave us all a scare, but he is a healthy and happy baby. With so much love to give.

I spent some time with him on Sunday when my husband and I were to my parents for dinner. He had a cold, but still smiled and talked on. He has started talking more and more, and I think he will soon say whole sentences. Now it’s more: Bil (Car in Swedish), Mamma (mother in Swedish), Pappa (father in Swedish), där (there in Swedish) and some other words.

My nephew and sister-in-law for a walk in the woods.

He loves my dogs. Often pointing at them saying: Där! And he loves petting them and sometimes he tries giving them his toys in the hopes that they will play with them. But Oracle and Zelda don’t find cars that interesting to play with. 

And you should here his laugh. I am seriously thinking about recording it to use as my ringtone or notification sound on my phone.

As you probably can tell. I love my nephew very much.

My Mother ~ Thankful Tuesday

Its time for my Thankful Tuesday post and today it will be about my mother.

My mother and I have had our ups and downs in our relationship, but she’s my mother and I love her. I know that I can call her if I have any troubles or just need someone to talk to. She is wonderful with my dogs and treats them as her grandchildren.

Sometimes I think she wants me to take it a little more easy with all the challenges I take. Like starting university. I think she might think it was too early in my development after my mental health problems. But she is still there pushing me.

We go shopping together. The last time was last Friday. And we have a nice time. I get to borrow her and dads car to get to campus. And if I feel like its a bad day, we talk on the phone while I drive to campus in the morning. They have Bluetooth in their car so my phone is connected to that. So no I am not breaking the law when I talk to her.

My mother is always going to be my mother. And I am thankful for that. And I love her.

So mom, if you read this: I love you!

 

My Father – Thankful Tuesday

This week thankful Tuesday post is about my father. A person that loves me for me and that’s always there for me. He has never stopped me from going after what I want in life and he has taught me so many things.

My father is one of my best cheerleaders and he has read almost everything I have written. And he is the one that has taught me about photographing. That’s an interest that we both have and can talk for hours about. Like what kind of camera we would like to own. Places we would like to visit and photograph.

When I have bad days, he sometimes follows me to campus and sits in the car so I have some support on hard days. And that feels really safe so I actually can go to my lectures. And to clarify, he sits in the car for a maximum of two hours. And he leaves the car and walks around campus. It’s just that he is close and I have someone there if something happens.

My father is a great person to call if I am having a panic or anxiety attack. I usually try calling my husband first, then it’s my father or mother depending on the time in the day. My father has a calm voice that helps me relax and we can talk about anything so I don’t think about the things that started my attacks.

And he is a great “grandfather” to my dogs. They love him. And he spoils them, which they love. He is a great dogsitter and he and my mom often help with the dogs when my husband and I can’t take them with us. Like when we went to England this summer.

So to summarize. I am thankful to have my father as my father. And I love him very much.

My brother – Thankful Tuesday

I have a brother that’s 3 years older than me. We have had our ups and down, especially when we were both teenagers. But now I feel like we have a good relationship. And I am really thankful to have him as my brother. I know that I can call him whenever and he will be there for me.

He has helped me with so many things over the years and I know that he will help me in the future too. When it comes to technics that I don’t understand I can always ask my brother. He is, in fact, the one who helped me with starting this page.

And he loves my dogs and has helped me a lot with walking them when I am home alone for a couple of days.

My brother lives in the same town as I do, with his fiance and their son. And it takes about 20 minutes to walk home to them.

So that’s this week Thankful Tuesdays post.

 

 

 

Zelda ~ Thankful Tuesday

For this weeks Thankful Tuesday post, I wanted to write about my dog Zelda. She is the little one in our small family.

She’s a Welsh Corgi Cardigan that is about 2,5 years old. And she is kind of goofy. She has a strong will and she loves to play. There is so much puppy left in her that she on a daily basic chase her tail.

We bought her so Oracle could get a little sister and someone to play with. And I am really thankful that we did. She always makes me laugh. And now we have two dogs to cuddle with.

When I have a cold, I have two dogs to warm me up. And they keep a close eye on me. Zelda loves to explore new places, but she is a homebody. She loves her yellow ring.

I could write so much more about her and I will but not today. Instead, I am going to share this picture of Zelda with you:
