You know, I stay so busy that I can sometimes lose touch of how I feel on a given day, simply because I’m on auto-pilot so often, rushing from one job to another, working on opening my business, still writing and writing and making art, providing childcare for Ingrid, taking care of our home, making music, making life happen…..so when I stop, as I did today while the beautiful scent of lavender (my favorite) wafted up from the floors that I’d just mopped, and I thought about how I really feel, all I could think was how great I have it right now….how happy I am….how all the pieces have simply fallen into place.
There is illness in my family….my cousin….my parents….but even still, my heart is peaceful, albeit very concerned.
There is no dysfunction in my immediate life. There is stress, but it is the normal kind that comes with an overwhelming, crushing amount of work….yet, each time I complete one task and go on to the next, I feel a little happier, like I am one step closer to opening this business and realizing my goals. Things are so good! I am one lucky woman.
I would like to thank those family members who have been so incredibly supportive of me….my husband, my daughter and on and on. What would I have done without them? My dear friends who make sure I know I am valuable to them. I have some incredible friends, and I have not lost a single one of them in years. They stand by me in the face of controversy and make sure that I know I am loved, every day of the week. I am one lucky woman.
I still love living in this beautiful city in this beautiful state and I count my blessings every day for everything that I have. Money can’t buy this folks. Money can’t buy this kind of happiness.
Life just doesn’t get much better than this.
I have love. I have life. I have someone who is very, very special and sweet who makes me feel good to be alive, and for this, I am most thankful of all.
Life is great.
