Hello again, Stefanie here reminding you to get yourselves included inside your scrapbooks.
Do you know what makes you happy? The children playing happily, giggling and having fun? Peace and quiet with a nice glass of wine or some steaming hot chocolate? So often we, as women/mothers can tell you exactly what each of our family members wants and loves. This one likes cheese, that one hates tomatoes. Or which flavour of chocolate or chips is their favourite. What about you? Does your hubby (or significant other) know what flavour is your favourite? Which bunch of flowers makes your heart sing? Do you perhaps suck it up and pretend to love everything that they give you, selflessly taking the back seat in the family’s life? How about the things you love right now? I bet that they’re different from what they were ten or twenty years ago. When the babies were small I couldn’t wait for them to grow up and say my name, Mommy! Then they got bigger and the constant calls of “Mommy! Mommy!” were not as much fun as I thought they’d be. When they were home for the holidays all I wanted was a little me time, peace and quiet. Now with two of them already finished school the empty nest looms ahead and I will have all the peace and quiet I ever wanted. I could dwell on the things that are less than perfect in my life, instead I choose to look at the great things, to focus my attention on the happy fulfilling times. The details that fill my life, that make me smile and keep me sane. What about you? What makes you happy and have you ever captured it?
