Today was a good day. It was busy but relaxed. We spent time with friends at the playground, showered ourselves with the water, created paper chains, read, enjoyed writing our names in a new way. Just lived.
I babysit several kids. Today the house was filled with three extra little bodies. They are really sweet children and the boys enjoy their company.
As I sit down to take a few minutes to myself and relax I am grateful for the day. For the fact that I am able to be home with the boys full time. Has it been easy financially? Not always, hence the extra kids. But would I ever go back to "work". Many have asked me this question over and over. NEVER. My career goal in life was to be a mother. I am happy just being that.
I just can't wrap my mind around them spending their days anywhere else. There are the occasional programs that Will has participated in. Those days are long for me. I miss him.
Now, I 'm not saying that every day is easy as pie. But we work through those times and the next day is a fresh start.
The fact that we get to spend days just living and learning in all that we do makes my life totally fulfilled.
I have this amazing husband and two children that are special in every way.
I am a very blessed woman.
So, like I said,
It was a good day!
