......Appreciate the annoying things in life.

I have had the painters in this week.  On day one, I was chatting away to the head painter about "paint colours" when in the background, my two eldest boys were squabbling.  I said to the painter, "I wish they would stop, it's very annoying.  He said to me, "Sharon, enjoy every annoying moment of their arguing, wrestling, squabbling" that you can.  My 20 year old boy went prawn trawling last year, the boat sank, my boy drowned, we don't have closure because no body was found, and every day I wish  I could hear the annoying sounds of my two boys arguing."  Well, boy did I take stock.  He's right, we should appreciate more in life, even the annoying things. 

Have a good weekend girls.

Yes, I often think that when I look at my girls. They are to be treasured every moment. I noticed your most recent post about A.J - are you ok? Have you just lost someone? Rachaelxx
