is coming home from grocery shopping and having your children yell, “MOMMMMYYY!” and they nearly knock you over with their hugs. Happiness is coming home with chocolate cream pie and everyone joyfully eating it after a dinner of pasta and homemade tomato sauce.
I do complain sometimes about the lack of time to myself, but honestly, it’s a joy and a blessing to have this family, to be so busy with taking care of them. Some day, Josie and Ava will be big, driving themselves around, trying to fulfill their goals. I will always have my own goals to fulfill, but for now, a few of them take a backseat. As a wise sage once said, “You CAN have it all, but just not all at the same time.”
Happiness is balance and simplicity.
