I love to hear my children's voices throughout the house.
I love to hear them run up the stairs and down the stairs all day long.
I love when the hamper upstairs opens and I can hear
loads of clothes drop from above into the laundry room.
I love hearing the children sit at the dining room table talking
to each other while finishing homework.
I love when the boys run out to play as soon as their homework is done,
and the girls stay inside to linger with me while I make dinner.
I love when the sun goes down and minutes later the boys come home hungry.
I love when we all sit down together to eat and talk
about the highlights of our day.
I love when after dinner everyone runs into the living room to play
leaving me with all the dishes and clean up.
Just kidding, that's the worst, we are working on that.
Seriously though- I love to feel content,
tired and fulfilled all at the same time.
