The greatest gift of all!

As my family can attest to, I have absolutely NO problem with MY birthday – Happy Birthday ME! Yet of all the gifts I’ve received over the years, there has been no greater gift in my life then these three people here.

My greatest gifts of all time!

Miss Eleven was but three weeks old in this photo where her Big Brother and Besotted Daddy are comforting her (actually, I think she was peeing on Hubby at the time but let’s not ruin the moment!).

There’s no denying “things” are nice to have and of course can prove more than useful at times (as I look into my Studio) but to have the love of a family such as mine, well, this is the greatest gift of all. I say this with tears in my eyes as I do know, and give thanks EVERY day, for how lucky I am for the life I have.

And as I sit here in the quiet of the house counting my blessings whilst the children sleep (note I have three girls this morning and no boy, hmmm), I have to wonder, when it comes to popping the champagne cork… “mum, how much longer?”

  1. Happy belated birthday, Joanne! I trust you had a great one! I agree that there are no more precious gifts than those in our family. I now have two new ones, grandkids. One is 4 years and the other just 2 months 🙂


    • Thank you so Andrea. Would you believe it though, a DAY later and still no corks popped, lol, but I MORE than made up for it with cocktails and wine – talk about taking one for the team 🙂 Wishing you a wonderful week-end! x


      • It is GOOD. I can tell you that much even though I don’t have children on my own. I have plenty in family and it is EVER Good. Enjoy the moments, Mom.
