Don't get me wrong there are times when I wish I could have a bigger house that didn't need things doing to it, like our house does. But I also think how extremely lucky we are to have a roof over our head that belongs to us. We don't rent and we don't have a massive mortgage which means that, in a few years time, we can potentially be mortgage free!
But happiness doesn't come from these materialistic things. Happiness is about waking up in the morning, looking out of the window and seeing the sun. It comes when you hear your children playing together whilst they wait for you to get out of bed. Or when one of them comes into your room for a cuddle.
My children make me truly happy. They are really good kids. They have their moments like any child but in the grand scheme of children, they are really, really good kids. Seeing them together just fills my heart with so much pride and joy and all I want to do is make them feel as happy as they make me feel.
