beautiful children, beautiful day

I am a married (almost 12 years) mother of three beautiful children Hannah 6 years, Zachary 4 years, and Jackson 8 months. We have a beautiful life. I have stayed at home with the children since Hannah was 4 months old. I made it at work one month with her and it just broke my heart to leave her. Everybody has there talents and things they were meant to do mine is my family. If there is one thing I was supposed to do on this earth it is to be a mother and wife. Nothing brings me more joy.

I woke up today to the sound of my 4 year old Zachary and my 6 year old Hannah. I heard them through the baby monitor. No, I just cannot give up the monitor. We have a split bedroom floorplan and there window is ground level so the monitor gives mommy security. As for now the kids do not mind, but one day soon I will have to give up the monitor. Anyway, I heard my favorite sound which is the pitter patter of their feet coming down the hall. They were ready for breakfast and hugs. JAckson, usually gets up at 6:00am or so but he slept today and woke up all smiles at 7:30.

We had a great day doing homeschool and a great afternoon. The kids decided to have a party for mommy. They set up a tea part and cheese and crackers... Funny, how kids have such a way of making you feel so loved.

Life is good. I hope you all get to take time to hug your kids today.

Have a beautiful evening. Below is a great poem I wanted to share.

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.

If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.

If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.

If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.

If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.

If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.

If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.

If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.

If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.

If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.

If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.

If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.

If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.

If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.

If children live with fairness, they learn justice.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.

If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.

If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.
