The Little Things...

I am finding myself enjoying the little things at the moment.

Big Sis cuddles while Lil Bro is completely content in her arms.  Be still my beating heart!
It's easy to focus on the lack of sleep, or the ability to snap your husbands head off at 4am or even the possibility that your two children have joined forces at such an early age!   But it is so simple to enjoy and focus on the small and beautiful things too....

 It's pretty easy to enjoy the small things when I watch my babies and the reality of our simple yet beautiful life smacks me in the face on more than one occasion every day.....and I find my eyes welling up with tears and then I smother them in kisses. Watching Macie as a Big Sis totally blows me away. Even when she successfully asks me 43 times for a cuddle while feeding or when she loves her little Bro so much that she feels the need to tickle his feet constantly! That combined with William's relentless tolerance for his Big Sis and my heart just wants to explode.  Dont get me wrong....Big Sis has been up to some serious shenanigans in the past few days - but it's moments like these that make forget...and focus.

So, today of all days on International Women's Day - try to stop and appreciate the beauty of being a woman, a mother, a sister, a daughter and a friend.  It's the small and simple things in life that are so beautiful....and that can make us so blissfully content and happy.
