Words for this day in Australia. Resilience. Support.

My gratitude for today was being able to go out with all of my grandchildren ages 16 to 3, just me and them. Grandpa has another week of work till his temp work is finished. Off to the park we went with all the requirements to keep little ones fed and watered and older ones […] Continue reading →
