Grateful

Afternoon at the beach.
It’s cold but the kids are straight in.
First time for this little one.
Enjoying the sunset.
Very grateful for the time I get to spend with my family.

The most important thing you can give a child, isn’t something that can be brought with money. It’s the time you spend with them each and every day. Spend time with your kids not money. Money can’t buy lost time.

  1. I could not agree more! I don;t have children, but I often think about what an amazing childhood I had. Seven children growing up on a council estate. Money was very tight for my parents. During the school holidays my parents could not afford to take time off work. So we went to work with Dad, three little girls and their Dad made the most popular window cleaning brigade in our town. We were so loved. We were able to work and spend time with Dad and his customers totally spoilt us with treats.

    At weekends, we played sports together or went to visit places (free places), or on rainy days did huge jigsaws or played games or put on plays as an entire family. It’s only as an adult that I realize that despite the absence of money and expensive toys etc, I had a rich childhood that I would not trade for anything.
