nurturing relationships

I use to wonder what it would have been like if I had only one child. This thought usually enters my mind when I’ve reached a level of exhaustion and I’m about to lose my cool with my kids, but then I’m quickly reminded that the reason I wanted to have three children was because of the unbelievable bond and nurturing that seems to naturally occur between siblings. They play together, laugh together and cry together. They are each others beginning and end. I feel really blessed every time I see them cuddling, building and creating together. I’m reminded of the amazing relationship I have with my brother… of the love we share, the uncontrollable laughter, the inside jokes that only we understand, the pillar of strength that we bring to one another.

We went on a holiday for an entire month! No work. No computers. No blogging. Just family and kids, laughter and sun. I wish it would have never ended. Sometimes it takes something as simple as spending quality time with my brother and our kids to realize that I need to take a leap of faith and change my life, because my children deserve to feel this happy each and every day of their lives.
