Grateful Saturday - Sam

This Saturday I am grateful again for my children.
The the light of my life & my happy place. I was feeling a lot of intense grief last week with the loss of so many children and mothers & fathers. I hugged them tighter and I read them more stories at night just because. I felt blessed.
I'm grateful for flowers.My Sam is so sweet.He spontaneously gave my Mum a flower today (but weedlike)...She said 'Thank you' and he said 'It's just a small one'. It breaks my heart to know that he faces many challenges in life because NF1 but he is so happy & cheerful at the smallest things. He gives me flowers too.

I am grateful for Sam's awe & wonder at the stars and moon ...most nights he wants to go check if the stars are out. One night he said 'Look, Mummy, look - the stars are multicoloured' as he awwed over them (was on the way home in the car at night). I wished I stopped driving to look.

Last year I wrote about how I was in awe of four and posted my interview with Joel twin#2.
I've finally got around to posting my Super Sam twin#1 because I kept losing his answers Id written down.
