I'm sure I've probably been grateful for this before. Maybe just in different words.
You know, like, grateful for sunshine, or grateful for a day in the sun, blah blah.
But there is no hiding it, I love the sunshine.
I wouldn't even say the sun was shining today, it was overcast but the weather was balmy and I was happy.
I have cold bloody, I need the sunshine, I don't like to go in the water for a dip unless it's 30 degrees. But my Lulu she does not take after me. When it hits 25 degrees she wants to get around in her undies because she's 'boiling'.
So on request today we officially celebrated the warm weather by pulling out the pool. Yeap our trusty pool cost $12 down at the discount store, but it's a ripper.
So we put a little water in it, (which no shit would have been freezing) and off they went.
Don't you just love the leadership of 'big brother', looks like he is choking the poor kid to death, but seriously they were both really happy! (do you believe me?)
Honestly, with smiles like this, how can one not be happy, be grateful, for my life that I have been given. Thank you very much.
Some days are tough, motherhood is hard, entertaining the kids is not always easy. But when I have days where it is warm, and a simple bit of water in the back yard can put smiles on their faces, it makes it all worth it.
Bring on summer I say.
So on this day, I am grateful for warm weather, and the simplicity that is entertainment in your own back yard.
I'm linking up with Maxabella loves grateful link up. What are you grateful for today?
