I am grateful for my simple lifestyle.
I stopped working outside the house twenty years ago to stay home with my children. I toyed with returning to work a few times when I was still able to but the desire wasn’t there.
By keeping my wants and needs miniscule I am free to give of my time when others need my help. I am reminded to be grateful this week for the freedom this lifestyle provides to me.
My son will be having foundational work done on his house which involves removing the flooring and walls and then a jack hammer will be used to break up the cement floor before the work can begin.
This will not only result in a huge mess but the need for constant supervision of Little Guy who would be impatient to watch, and assist, with the jack hammer. Luckily, I am free to enjoy the company of the little ones and keep them out of harms way.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
