We need both rainfall and sunlight to grow.

Feeling like it was just too much and too muddy to take the kids to the park this
afternoon, then feeling like I failed when bickering fills the space instead.
An infected graze and a fever from falling off her bike into a puddle
Pulled thin when baby doesn't fall asleep till 10 pm....
Wishing he hadn't asked to go and jam with his friends that same night...
and then feeling selfish about it.
Wishing we had family close by, the kind where you can just stop by, call, have a chat, a cry and feel better again for doing so.
little miss baby's first tantrum (flailing arms and legs and everything)
Deciding to blow two years of a saved deposit on the holiday we haven't had for 9 years.
Friends returning from months away.
Playdates with, the kind of friends that don't judge the bigness, the loudness, the spiritedness nor equally the quietness of our family
A quiet sense of peace in my soul
A creative project coming slowly to fruition (More on this another time)
Being happy for him to be able to have a chance to play his music again
Curled up beside him with some wine, cheese and bread once the house lulls
Having some proper giggles and connectedness with my free spirited 5 year old
Deciding to blow two years of a saved deposit on the holiday we haven't had for 9 years :)
