I was thinking back to MANY years ago when my children were all little.They were my happiest and my hardest times.We raised our family away from family. Most of the time that was ok , you find yourself a support system along with other people who are in the same situation. There were the times though that I just wanted to scream "HELP". I would wonder why those women who's children were grown or in school didn't offer to come help me (like they could read my mind).Of course now I know why they didn't.....they were too tired!
I loved our little family, I loved being a mommy. Where did I read a few months ago in one of my journel's " We just love hanging out together as a family". (Sometimes you only remember the hard times), thats what journels are good for (and now blogs) to help you remember the good times. My blog has helped me look at the good things in my everyday life and all I have to be thank-ful for. I know exactly what my children are going through raising their children (such a brave thing to do) and applaud them for their courage and the wonderful job their doing.I get such enjoyment out of their children not to mention the wonderful hugs and cuddles. Those are the best! I read a quote once that gives one something to think about................." Treat your children like you'd like them to treat your grandchildren."
