Precious Moments

4yob-Mumma when are we going to die?
Me-Only God Knows when we'll die sweetie.
4yob-I want to die when mumma dies.

Isn't it amazing the mind of a four year old! To look at him you would never think he'd be thinking about life & death,but then it's amazing what a quiet moment on Mumma's bed can draw out.To think if I had not stopped to chat...I would have missed the opportunity to see into my little adventure boys heart & mind.

Slow down..create chat look at these little faces which are changing before my eyes...

A Gift

What would we do without friends?
A listening ear,a comforting hug,an understanding nod,an encouraging word.
These are the gifts of friendship.
Today I am so thankful for the companionship I find in the friends that surround me...
the path is not so lonesome.

Good days.

What makes a good day?The children weren't any better behaved,I certainly didn't get everything I wanted to done but looking back on the day I feel it was a great day. Perhaps 5mog having good sleeps & being settled made the difference.Giving me the room to play place value games with 7yob & respond to 4yob's need for cuddles on the lounge.Or perhaps it was taking the time to enjoy & laugh when 6yog danced with ribbons for her baby sister whilst she sat on 4yob's lap or walking through the park on a beautiful spring afternoon & watching the children run ahead & frolic with each-other not caring how loud they're being or how bouncy.Enjoying cups of tea with friends & listening to the details of their lives knowing that we are all on a journey that has darkness & light.Looking forward to more...
