Things I love about today!

Today:

I am living out the best days of my life right now!

I have 5 young kids, and my eldest still kisses and hugs me good night.

I have 2 in diapers, which gives me time to kiss little bellies and tickle little arm pits!

I have kids that do not require designer clothing, shoes or the latest Cd's or DVDs.

At night, I can go to bed easy knowing I just kissed all of them good night and they are safe in our home and not out partying with their friends.

I can have interesting conversations with my kids about just about anything

We can laugh a lot and still throw most of the kids up in the air and catch them!

They don't talk back (well some of them do already) but they know we mean business when we say no!

They are fun little people that we created!

We get to see the love between the siblings, and the close bonds that they are all forming with each other!

When they are scared we know they will come running our way to help them!

The don't know about the bad stuff in the world and the issues like global warming, but they love to recycle!

The kids know we love them no matter what, and they can count on us to help them at any time!

Cathy,

When someone breaks it down like that, it makes you appreciate what you have. I sometimes get wrapped up in life and forget about these important things that WILL change as the years pass. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face, and a tear to my eye.

Hugs!
Dawn

You convince me more and more each day that I WANT to be a mom, and that I WILL indeed have more children. Thank you Cathy for always putting a smile on my face:)

I think it's great that you take the time to appreciate the small (well..BIG things really). There are some people I know who are stuck on the materialistic things that these more important things just pass them by.

Refreshing!

Cathy,

Your positivity always makes me smile. You come up with all the little things that we take for granted.

I'm going to try that too - maybe I'll make you smile :o)
