Cherishing these moments

Do you ever get that feeling? That wonderful feeling that you're both incredibly happy and incredibly lucky at the same time? I've been getting that feeling a lot lately. Just these little moments in my life, that I want to grab hold of and remember forever. Walking Oldest home from school as he's telling me stories about his day. Tucking the boys in at night, hearing Littlest joining in with the storytimes. Sitting in bed with my book, laughing with N and feeling calm and at peace.

I am both incredibly happy and incredibly lucky

And I don't think that I realise it enough. I don't think that I say thank you enough to the wonderful people in my life. My gorgeous, clever, kind boys. N who is so thoughtful and hardworking. My mother-in-law who is generous with her time and her help. And you, my wonderful blog-readers, who constantly put a smile on my face. Thank you to you all.

I write this hoping that you too be appreciative of those wonderful little moments, the many joys in our lives. And I am sorry this turned out so sappy...


  1. I think we all spend far too much time pondering on the negative rather than looking at all the good things in our life. Thank you for making us open our eyes to let a little sunlight in.

  2. That's wonderful! I struggle with sadness from time to time, but lately I feel so blessed and thankful as well. I feel like I have everything I wished and hoped for. And that's the best feeling in the world!

  3. I believe every day can bring great joy, if you are open and greet it. What a wonderful outlook you have:)

  4. Not at all sappy! I'm glad you're happy in your life. :)

  5. That is lovely. It does make you appreciate the little things :)

  6. Lovely post and a gorgeous photo too.
