I’ve always had an appreciation for the little things in life; more recently however it’s come to light how much we really should love those things that do genuinely make us so content.
Over the weekend I spent some well needed time with my godchildren. These two little munchkins really do mean the absolute world to me. Being a maternal person myself I love it when I walk through the door and little Matthew comes running to me shouting “Auntie Sophie” with the biggest smile on his face, arms wide open ready for a cuddle. He’s truly growing up to be a wonderful little man, albeit a nightmare on occasion (these moments I don’t get to experience to his mothers dismay ha!). Joshua…god what can I say about this little heart-breaker. He is just beautiful beyond belief, with a smile that would melt anyone’s heart in an instant. I’ve never known a baby so damn happy all the time! Time with these two is priceless, they won’t be little forever so I truly do treasure every second.
Time with my grandparents. I always feel terrible when I don’t always have the time to go and see them every few days. As we grow older I think we forget to appreciate our grandparents sometimes, these are the people who I usually go to first in a crisis or for advice. Some people aren’t lucky enough to have theirs around anymore, I truly am blessed to have all of mine still with me. It’s definitely on my list of things to improve over the next few years whilst they are still here. They truly are four incredible people who have so many amazing life stories and love a good natter, and a bit of banter! Just having them here is one of those things I will always appreciate and never take for granted.
