Hi Folks, it’s Friday again and here are my favourite five comments of the week
This is the first comment we’ve received from Smoothagator and what a great one it is too. I hope she will join in and share her special brand of wisdom with us on a regular basis. Thanks Smoothagator and welcome to 365 Less Things.
This comment came from Grace in Brazil in response the Cindy’s Weekly Wisdom ~ First Fruits. It is short but sweet so I have cut and pasted it here rather than add a link. ~ Something my 17 year old daughter said recently also puts this in perspective. She stated quite wisely, â€œThere is greater virtue in giving away something that you really want to keep.â€ Let us be virtuous women!

Today’s Declutter Item
I last used this item in 1999 when I had lawn to water. Now I live in a townhouse and my lawn is about 4mÂ² and rarely needs watering. As I have no intention of ever having a bigger garden I feel confident to decluttering this item.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
Somedays I have a habit of making mountains out of molehills, finding discontentment where it needn’t be and generally making my life miserable for nothing. Today wasn’t one of those days. In fact today I spent some time with a beautiful friend of mine who has more than her share of real difficulties and it felt good to be there for her and remind myself just how lucky I am. Today I am grateful for the wonderful life I am blessed with.
