“Blessed is the man who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed”

Alexander Pope

At four thirty am I found my heart filled with  joy and contentment.  To do achieve this I had to count my blessings.  This is an exercise that we should all do constantly; to count the gifts that have been given to us from On High.  Gifts for us to cherish.  So, in the early hours before dawn, I paused for a moment and I thought about the blessings I have been given and gave thanks for them:

  • A loving wife (the lovely wife),
  • A beautiful baby son,
  • A washing machine,
  • A tumble dryer.
