Today whilst feeding our baby there was a knock at the door.

So that I didn’t have to worry about trying to break the vacuum seal the baby had created over my breast, as well as remember to ‘make myself decent’ before opening the door and accidentally greeting whoever stood outside with my bare boob, my husband answered the door.

Luckily it was hubby’s day off and as an added bonus my husband knows me well enough to remember that my chances of accidentally flashing unsuspecting visitors are quite high!

Delivering More Than Just Packages

It was our Postie! Well, one out of the three wonderful posties that we are fortunate enough to call ours.

For the sake of the specifics, and just in case he ever comes across this article, I will mention it’s the one with little ones that have beautifully unique names, who loves his wife so very much that he empathises greatly with her pregnancies and is an all-round-good-guy!

The Truth!

“You are the luckiest guy I know” our Postie said to my hubby as he opened the door, “not only do you have a good number of kids, but you get to have an awesome bike and stuff!”

I think my husband was more than a little taken aback. I’m sure he has never seen it this way. And in roughly twenty words our Postie had delivered far more than a package of new activewear (which I will lounge around the house in pretending to still be a fitness freak), but the absolute truth, and I adore him for it!

Sometimes it takes someone externally looking in to make you truly see how incredibly blessed you are.

I’ve always felt tremendously fortunate in life, but I believe now my husband can feel the depth of our blessings also.

Feel Your Blessings

What more could anyone possibly need than being surrounded by their loved ones, food in their bellies and a place to call home… if you’ve got these things, you’re complete and if you’ve got even more like a job and materialistic things, then really, you’ve got it all!

Gosh we’ve got a Postie who really should have been a Wellness Coach, and we are grateful for his wise words and kind heart!

Stop Worrying About What You’re Missing Out On!

Sometimes you’re so busy thinking about what you’re missing out on by being a parent that you don’t realise how amazingly lucky you are each and every single day just to have everyone and everything that you do.

Thoughts about experiences that your childless mates are able to enjoy and you feel you’re missing out on can cloud your mind as well as your happiness and make it challenging to just be content with what you’ve got…

A common human flaw that is easy to adjust simply by taking a step back, a deep breath and counting your blessings each and every single day, because we are fortunate, we just need to encourage ourselves to truly feel it!

Thank you Mr. Postman, you are a legend!!!

Do you find it difficult to stop and appreciate your blessings? Do you have a friendship with your postie? Tell us in the comments below.

  • Our parcel delivery guys seem to work very hard to not be detected as they leave packages.


  • I have only ever greeted our postie if he’s needed to come to the door. Most delivery personnel are frightened to get close to the door with our giant breed dog alerting us to their approach to the door. Gentle giants but still, there’s a lot more people scared of dogs, esii oh ecuslly bog ones, than I ever realized.

    How sweet that some posters actually have and take the time to get to know those on their regular route!


  • Ours always rotate.


  • Sadly our posties just ride on by with their motorised bikes, so we don’t know any of them.


  • We have a lovely postie. Always happy to stop and chat and ask after our well being!


  • I have different posties. Some times hard to see there faces they just leave my parcels and run back to the vehicle.


  • Don’t get a chance to chat to our posties. But yes, so important to take time and be greatful for what you have. Life is so precious I don’t take anything for granted


  • We have different posties. We don’t get a chance to say hello or chat to them


  • We have a few different ones, some are nice others not so much


  • I don’t like our postie he’s rude and insists on knocking as loud as he can to make our dog go off.. I have asked him not to but he still does. So frustrating!


  • We don’t get postal deliveries, we have a post box at the post office. The owner and her worker are wonderful people and always willing to have a chat.


  • Yesterday a handy man came for the repair of our bed and he ended up praying for me ! Isn’t that a lovely blessing ?


  • It’s easy to forget all the positives in life in the moment when something is weighing you down. You need to step back and realise all you have to be thankful for. An attitude of gratitude.


  • I appreciate the little things and feel incredibly blessed to have wonderful family and friends. My postie is a nice guy and although he seems to be on his phone a lot (lol!) we exchange pleasantries.


  • I feel more than ever now I can acknowledge and accept what we have and how lucky we are.
