I'm Grateful - That my Children Care about Others

Pin It
Today I am linking up for the first time with the gorgeous I'm Grateful for Link Ups from the beautiful blog Maxabella Loves. This week's link up is being hosted by Lioness Lady



Every day I am reminded just how grateful I am that my children truly care about others. This includes people they know and people who they have never met but have seen from a distance on tv or in the street. 

As we rush about our day, it is easy to let the small gestures they make, go unoticed. You know the things they do like helping a friend who has fallen over, helping someone in the shops who has dropped something, asking questions and worrying about people they see on the news.

Today I watched as my 4 year old son Flynn put his 'lucky' dollar coin in the bucket of a violinest outside our shopping centre. When I asked him why he did that, he said it was because the man looked sad. 

My middle son Sam (6) has a beautiful heart. He quietly asks me many times a day "are you ok Mum?", and he doesn't just go through the motions of asking - he genuinely cares whether I am ok or not.

Kai (10) my oldest, is one of the kindest kids I know. He is always sticking up for the underdog and looking out for people at school who may be in need of a little extra support or friendship.

As I was sorting through some photos today from a holiday we went on earlier this year, I found this photo of one of my little guys at a small shell village that sold jewellery and hand made gifts. Sam decided he would give them a hand by selling some coconuts and beach junk he found. 

Sadly he didn't get any sales that day, but I got something that money cannot buy - a child with a beautiful soul.

Oh that is just adorable. No doubt their generous nature is a reflection of you and your parenting. Well done. Just lovely.

Thank you Guys - I am so GRATEFUL that you took the time to read my Grateful Post. :) I do feel very blessed to have such caring kids. I so heart it when they give me the warm and tingly Mummy Moments that I love to revisit on those horrendous days when the good behaviour seems to have been accidently chucked out with the trash.
Thanks again for dropping by. :) xxx Sonia

Your comments mean so much to me and I love reading every single one. If I dont reply straight away, it is only because I am being distracted by a herd of rampaging hippos...namely my kids. xx
