Hardly a day goes past without me thinking how lucky I am to have four little girls. I never dreamed that I would have even one of them. Everyone I knew seemed to be having boys and I only had brothers. It just seemed to me that I would have boys too. That would have been just fine too.
But now that I actually have four girls I think I am sooo lucky. I had no idea how lucky girls with sisters were. Our girls mostly love each other dearly, even though they sometimes fight and say grotty things to each other. They are very good at giving each other encouraging words,a hug, or a special treat, saved especially for their sisters, from an outing.
They all have sweet things that they do for us. Just the other day No. 3 picked five daisies on the way home and later that day she placed one on each of our beds as a little present. How sweet is that? I think Daddy and I might just have shed a little tear at that gift.
And now on to a different note. I decided a while ago, when my 'countries visited' list arrived at 50, I would have my first blog giveaway. It will be relevant to the name of the list and I will be busy preparing a parcel of goodies for the winner this week. Stay tuned for more details later on in the week!
