Today I’m grateful for…day 11

Today I’m grateful for simple family moments. Something as simple as a small fire, some sparklers, and a game of tag.

These moments are what life is all about. Watching the kids run around and have fun. I remember the days as a kid where we would stay up so late running around playing hide and seek or tiggy or just having fun at night without a care in the world.

I’m so glad that our kids too have the opportunity to do these simple things. I notice too that they enjoy themselves so much more when they do these things. They beg for more time playing and squeal and laugh and just be kids.

I’m grateful for these moments because it takes them away from the technology and just let’s them live raw wholesome real life.

Never underestimate how meaningful all these things are for kids.

Much love!


I am a 31 year old mother of 4 in a second marriage. I love my family but I struggle to display that emotionally sometimes due to my habit of bottling up my true feelings. I am a naturally messy, unmotivated person which makes looking after a household and 4 children extremely difficult sometimes. I am hoping to appeal to other mum's/dad's who are living in a blended family, struggling through the everyday lives after dealing with divorce, watching children cope with separation, changeovers and ex-spousal confrontation. I hope that my life can help others to see that they are not alone in this journey and that I can find helpful information on making life just that little bit more helpful.
