It has gotten so common these days to complain more than appreciating what we have. I am a mother of three, my youngest is 5 months and oldest is 4, so you can imagine we get busy at times. But as I lay here, just having fed the baby. And looking at her and the messy house, I can not help but feeling endlessly happy. I hope people start to look up and smile at the things they have and be happy, instead of letting the mess in our lives bring us down!

  • What an inspirational story. I truly believe in Happiness, and I told my daughter-in-law when she had her 3rd baby that she will be receiving advice from everyone. If I could give her one bit of advice – it would be not to listen to anyone.

    Let people give their advice, say thank you, and ignore it. The most important thing is the baby will tell her what she needs, let her motherly instinct come into place, but the most important thing is – Don’t worry about the housework, she was trying to do everything and getting run down. She was exhausted. I told her to enjoy her children, enjoy the time with them, everything else can wait.

    Your children are only at that age once, if you enjoy the time, the stress will reduce and you will be much happier, she followed my advice and now, she is thankful for that wonderful time.

    I have 3 very beautiful granddaughters who are just gorgeous girls. Allowing the time with them has been a beautiful, happy journey…. that is what is important.


  • I agree; let there be some mess!


  • Taking five minutes to appreciate stuff is so valuable.


  • Wish more people thought along the same lines as we do.
    I say to my husband all the time “i dont want to live in a show house i want to live in a home thats filled with laughter”
    Who cares if i have dishes left from last night as long as the kids are fed and bathed who cares


  • What a beautiful person you are. It is so wonderful and refreshing to hear of someone looking on the bright side of life. The old saying ” the house work can wait till another day” is so true. Enjoy your time with your children as they grow way to fast.. and enjoy life likes it your last day on earth. Love to you all.


  • It is far more important to spend your day with your children in the early stages as they are only babies for a short time.


  • Contentment makes such a difference when we choose not to fret about stuff to satisfy other people’s expectations. Good for you!


  • I am glad you are very happy and having young children also brings alot into your life. they do make one so happy with just a little smile or some other thing they do.
