Focus on Family by Mister+Lady | Any Given Sunday
The story of Josh, Ebony, Harvey, Charlotte, Buddy & Rowdy
Clouds rolled in on a typical Sunday in May at the Bell household where there is a focus on family. Enough to make it cosy and warm inside while Ebony, Harvey & Charlotte played a few games of Uno as Josh watches a bit of the game in the shed. He enjoys having a few moments peace before the afternoon match starts on his own turf. Squeals of laughter ring through the house and each round of cards are played out while Buddy & Rowdy the dogs warm themselves by the heater.
Heights are marked in the doorways and walls proudly exhibit the recent artworks and achievements. If walls could talk they would agree the phrase written on them comes true each day. Laughter, warmth, hope and memories are being made here on a daily basis.
Preparing dinner is a ritual enjoyed by the kids on a weekend as they confidently peel chop and glaze the ingredients of the evening meal. Independence is encouraged to allow them to grow with the necessary skills to look after themselves in later life. Ebony also enjoys treating them to the odd indulgence like warming their clothes for when the get out of the shower and elaborate stunts like filling their rooms with balloons on the morning of their birthday. We remember these little things as adults that help us feel the nice fuzzy memories of our childhood.
Pre planning does not always happen in this home, some days are chaos and seem straight out of a comedy of errors. Only last week the pet goldfish was found swimming in the toilet bowl and new puppy Rowdy ate the pet mouse when left alone for two seconds. Thankfully, though most days flow with ease.
Becoming a family had been a wonderful surprise after Ebony & Josh discovered they would bring life into this world after only knowing each other 3 weeks. They would have their share of ups and downs on the rollercoaster called life but all were taken in their stride as they choose to tackle them together as a team with unwavering support for each other as individuals.
Being natural parents does not come easy to everyone but it is certainly the case here. Heart-warmingly Harvey & Charlotte are so secure due the love their parents have for them and the genuine delight that spreads across their faces when they spend quality time together. They enjoy the simple things like kicking around a footy on the emerald green grass of the manicured lawn in their beloved backyard haven, admiring the fish and the freedom you feel when the wind sweeps through your hair as you bounce on the tramp.
Gentle spitting rain will never dampen the spirits of this family with their down to earth attitudes and zest for life.
