Grateful for my Daughters

My youngest daughter has just returned from a four day music camp. My husband and I were willing to give her the experience of learning strategies to play her violin better; and of giving her the opportunity to spend some time at the lake.

While she was gone, however, I did miss her. I missed her hugs, her laughter, and her chattiness. Her sister missed her company too – especially as they are best friends who do a lot of things together. When she came home last night, we had a small celebration: a favourite meal was cooked; and a long conversation around the table took place.

This week I am grateful for my daughters. I am grateful for the pleasure they give me of their company. I am grateful that they wish to spend time with me: that they wish to chat with me and share their concerns with me. I am grateful for the chance I have to raise two children who have become precious daughters.

Thank you for last week’s contributions. I enjoy reading what others are grateful for – the posts make me think of other things I am happy to have in my life.

  1. Your daughters must be close in age, mine are too and they were best friends for a long, then something really terrible happened to my eldest daughter, something I can’t go into, and with lots of counselling, and time, they now seem to be best friends again and they do a lot together, it is nice to see it happening, though sometimes I feel on the outer with them.


    1. They are close in age – they are exactly 1 year and 3 weeks apart. I think this has helped them be close.
      Glad that your daughters rediscovered their friendship. It is important, I think, that sisters be close.


  2. So good to know your two daughters miss each other and that they miss home too. Shows they have a good upbringing from you and your husband. So much to be grateful for!


      1. Very true. I can say I am also very grateful for the way life turned out for my son too. Very hard to be a single parent and giving the right advice and example!


  3. Hi colline – great shot – I like the hands and the escalator in the back! Also, the camp sounds cool – and what sweet grateful post. 🙂
    also, i am in on the project this week – I was doing a throwback post and as I felt so much gratefulness for the time with my pops, it reminded me of your cool project! my post is here:

    okay, have a great week ands enjoy those laughs, hugs and chats! ❤ ❤ ❤
