what I love about my job...

not that I call it a job but what I love is spending time with our girls. Not doing anything just being. I don't like it when we are busy and I know I don't cope well with the busy-ness but I have to cope so I do. So today I took some photos of Lucy and Elizabeth, being that they are the only ones home for me to take photos of lol, to remind me of the things that matter and the things that make me happy.

Lucy loves to play in the playground before Elizabeth's kinder has finished. In fact Lucy just loves to be active lol

Elizabeth on the other hand likes to be still

They both had sleeps for me today (OH MY!) and while they slept I finished off the housework and then scrapped this for the Scrapping the Music challenge, the song 'Love like this'.

Sometimes we just need to see the good things in life to realise that things aren't always as bad as we think they are. Sometimes I need to see that, even with a busy day, that the small things, that I might miss in my busy day, are worth holding on to and those small things will get me through to tomorrow. Those small things are gifts.

Pin It Now!
