"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant."
Robert Louis Stevenson
Family holidays are such a special way to reconnect with the people we love.
Being away from home and trying new experiences, I think, brings us together in a more relaxed way than when we are dealing with the every day pressures of life.
Holidays allow us the opportunity to step off the wheel, if only for a short time.
We have just returned from a lovely few days at Port Douglas and I am loving the residual effect of our little break.
I think we are all feeling rested, more inspired and most importantly, more patient with one another.
I see that patience in our kids who are being particularly understanding and having fun together.
Even our 12 hour car trip home was fun and that is saying something!
