I second that - I've had a few smiles today when reading posts - especially as I'm not very happy at the moment.

Another smile - my boys and I loading a trailer with manure and then tipping it out on the allotment and my youngest (11) playing in the snow.

This happened yesterday afternoon. I just got home from picking up my son at school and as I walked towards the house he ran ahead of me with bookbag in tow. As I got to the door he was waiting for me with his first report card of the new school year and a great big smile on his face. Attached to the front of the report card is a bright red ribbon that says "Honor Roll". He has worked so hard and I'm so proud of him.
Do I hear a great big AWWWWW!

AWWWWWW
You must be such a proud mommy!! Being a teacher you can tell right away what parents give their time to their child and work with them at home, because the child actually ENJOYS learning and always will!

My oldest son to me is so special..All my kids are but, there is a special bond between this one and myself.We exchange e-mails and this morning I get a PM about a woman, her husband and their dog..This e-mail brought me to tears,, good tears, it was so full of love..I think we can overcome just about anything, if we are loved...I know I am..So I pass some of it on to you this beautiful morning....Bask in love and enjoy your day.

I just now smiled when my oldest burst in the door off the school bus and said
"CANDY FOR EVERYONE!!!""
His bus driver gave him a little baggie full and he dumped it all on the couch to share with the little 2....
I wonder if the bus driver told him to....
