Grateful Saturday - Joel

This Saturday I am grateful for my children.
They are the light of my life and they are my happy place.
I wrote the other day how I was in awe of four .


  1. They play together , more cooperatively and interact well with less intervention from me.
  2. It means I can sit down 'clean' for longer periods.
  3. I love the random conversations with them and how funny they are.

And this can be anywhere.. in restaurants, down the supermarket aisle, driving around town... makes me smile every time :)
