It has been a while since I had this feeling. This feeling of pure happiness. Things finally seemed to have just got into a groove. The kids are growing and learning new things every day, my marriage is going forward in leaps and bounds. It has almost been a year since I said "I do."
Over the last couple of months I took a step back and tried to look at my life from a different point of view. I knew I wanted to make some changes. So I did. I started spending more quality time with the kids. We did puzzles, painted, made castles out of blocks, did crafts, played with bouncy balls, ran around the back yard, tickled, cooked, laughed and enjoyed each and every moment we had together. I introduced the naughty corner to the kids as a new form of discipline. I do not want my kids growing up with attitude and thinking they are the boss of the house. I started to plan meals. I organised chores. Didn't leave the washing piling up in baskets for a week before I got stuck into it. Instead I do a bit each day. And, i have put my little boy back into his cloth nappies now that we have some warmer weather.
Life is good! I am loving it. Loving my family. Loving the possibilities that lie ahead. Finally I wake up each morning and look forward to the day ahead. I think about the good things instead of the things I don't want to do.
I am happy again. Truly happy. And I love it!
