Day Seven - Five things that bring you joy
We are one week into the Blog-tember challenge already! Can you believe it? Today the prompt is to share five things that bring us joy. It's hard to narrow it down to just five things but here goes.
1// My children
As cliche as it sounds my kids are my world. As a child whenever I was asked what I wanted to do when I grew up, I always answered, "I want to be a Mum" I was maternal from the get-go and that never changed. After my miscarriages, before James came along, there were so many moments where I was afraid that I would never get to experience parenthood but it all worked out and now I have two beautiful little ones and another on the way. Sure they drive me batty most days but I wouldn't be without them.
Who doesn't love the sun? It is amazing the affect it has on my mood though. I'm a fan of autumn but winter just makes me miserable. The rain, the cold, the early nights. As soon as the sun makes an appearance in Spring I'm like a different girl. I'm motivated and raring to go :)
Putting pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard, I'm so happy when I'm able to write. It's the main reason I started this blog. I'm never going to be the best at it or make loads of money from it but it brings me joy and isn't that the important thing? If I go for too long without writing something then I get antsy. I'm the same with reading. Curling up with a good book is better than any night out.
4// Newborn Cuddles
Aren't they the best? There is something so relaxing about snuggling with a baby. They are just bundles of pure innocence. Plus they don't answer you back like a three year old does ;)
5// Fresh flowers, cups of tea, rain storms (when you don't have to leave the house!) giggling children, cheesy rom-com movies, christmas time, picnics, days out, a clean house, those few seconds when you've put all the clean washing away and you're basket is empty, sleeping with the windows open, tucking your children in at night, rainbows, dance parties in the kitchen, a meal made from scratch, movie nights, takeaway pizzas, when little ones sleep past 7am...
