I'm not sure when it is, but the media will soon be telling us all it's Blue Monday. So, how about an A-Z of Reasons to be Cheerful

All is well. (A wee mantra.)

Neal! That is (or is very similar to) a favourite mantra of mine too! :D

,“All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.” - St Julian of Norwich.

I suddenly feel slightly ashamed that this is all I know of Julian, other than she was female despite her name, lived a long time ago, and resided in Norwich (presumably).

Birdsong at dawn. They probably do this all year round (my ornithological knowledge is as scanty as my hagiography...), but I've been aware of it for the last few mornings and it makes me think that winter's on the turn and spring is on its way.
