This is Why I Do What I Do

My youngest child took his nap happily on my oldest child today.

My second oldest child carefully transcribed his handwriting work: A happy family is an early heaven. "It is," he told me.

My fifth child shared some hard earned treats with my fourth child today.

My fourth child played me every song I requested from his new Christmas songs for Piano book and my third child played them all over again.

I could share some frustrations from yesterday or some concerns I have for tomorrow, but this was today and it is the reason I do what I do. There is no paycheck that could bring this kind of satisfaction.
