Today I woke up to a beautiful breakfast in bed - prepared by my two little boys (with some help from their daddy). It felt quite odd sitting there all by myself eating while I heard them have their own breakfast downstairs - as lively as ever. Isn't it funny how we often wish we could escape the craziness for a little while but when we get the opportunity we feel left out? I had such a wonderful day with my family today and feel so utterly grateful for having my two precious boys. They make my life complete and have given it a true sense of purpose.
I also feel blessed to have two wonderful women in my life - my mother and mother-in-law. Both are a great inspiration to me. They have devoted much of their lives to staying at home and raising their children but have also then found meaningful careers that they are passionate about. Thanks to them I don't feel torn between being at home with my children and my career goals because they have shown me that you can still pursue your "professional" dreams at a later stage.
Thanks you so very much for your lovely comments on my last entry.
I hope you have a great start to the new week.
