Today is a great day, why because everyday is a great day. We have to grab life with both hands and live everyday to the full. It is easy to get into a routine and miss out on opportunities that come our way, putting the boring and mundane aspects of life to the front, but house cleaning, laundry will all be there tomorrow and if you have the opportunity to do something really fun and exciting take it.
Today is our sons 10th birthday, and it seems like only yesterday that we were at the hospital looking at a brand new baby, our daughter was only 2 years and 3 months and now she is 12. Life moves at a very fast pace and your children grow incredibly fast so take every moment to enjoy your family, to experience the process of them growing mentally, physically and emotionally and be a part of all of it.
You want to look back on life with fond memories, not snatched moments, and so it is vital that you put everything into order of priority.
If your child wants to learn to knit and you need to sweep the yard, there should be no competition. If your child wants to learn how to make bread and you know that the whole kitchen is going to be filled with flour, so what, you can clear up mess but you cannot return to this time again.
Life life, enjoy life and embrace it with both arms.
