Nice words, though being a parent of 3 totally rocks
We also have 3 angels)) Their favorite time is family game night (no i`m not speking about smth with whiskey and pokies) sounds great in theory. But after the fifth year of weekly Candy Land tournaments to accommodate your youngest children, you find yourself fighting the urge to shove King Kandy’s face right into Licorice Lagoon and hold him there until he stops kicking. Good luck)

Today I am grateful for:
1. A loving patient husband and life partner
2. A small vege garden I can potter in for a few minutes to relax my mind
3. Sunshine and birdcalls in the trees
Still working on getting our kids through life, but I am grateful for the other things that make my days bearable!

I really love all of these!
@Faob_1 I also find so much joy in my garden! What do you grow? I never thought I'd turn into someone who loves to potter in the garden, but I find it so soothing. Still heaps to do, but we want to put in some raised veggie beds and I'm excited about growing more food! We have a lot of possums who break my heart a bit, they ate every single mandarin last year I do find it very therapeutic getting my hands dirty.
I am grateful for my kids, even if they may well send me grey soon (!) - after a challenging year health wise, I am also incredibly grateful for our public health system and amazing doctors and nurses.
I'm also grateful for my family - we had our first ever family thanksgiving last week (my husband is American but we've never done a celebration for my parents etc) and it was really lovely going around the table, talking about what we are thankful for.

@Janine-RO Hi again - I grow lots of herbs, tomatoes, beetroot, spinach and lettuces, Paris carrots - the little round ball type, eggplants. Keeps me sane!
I should also have added last week that I was grateful for my three Year 12 students who graduated last week and all had lovely things to say about me in front of the new Principal and school and parents. It was life affirming and I really needed to hear their words that day!
I am grateful for our son keeping in touch with us, even if it is to bemoan his life, or blame us, or speak with a sharp tone at times...
I am grateful for our 20 year old daughter who is navigating the world of uni, work and life well, and always willing to talk when there's a hiccup. I am grateful for the free counselling services she accesses.
Have a great day everyone.
