reminder to me

It has been a week.  Technically there is still one day to go.  I was reminded by two of my fellow bloggers to focus on what is good in my life.

  • I live in a great house.  
  • my children are healthy and have the energy and fortitude to push back.
  • I have been married almost 18 years (Sunday is our anniversary) 
  • I do not go to bed hungry nor do any of my family
  • I have good friends - here and there
  • I have a job 
  • my eyes can see beauty and my ears can hear music
  • I live in a beautiful province despite my complaints about the rain
Life is a crazy thing.  The struggle for the even keel can be terrifying.  I know that just when I get comfortable there will be a shake down.  I KNOW this and yet every SINGLE time it happens I am caught off guard.  I am a slow learner.  I am grateful for the journey.  I AM.

Happy Anniversary...

It's hard, sometimes, to remember how wonderful things are. We worry about children and money and the world but here we sit with so many gifts.
I lose sight of it frequently.

It's Sunday here so it's your anniversary already :) Happy anniversary.

I've had a shitty couple of weeks. I need to do the grateful list to put it all into perspective.

PS. Your photos are more gorgeous by the day!

You have made a good testimony, very encouraging. Sounds like you also have the energy to push back, against despondency.
Happy Anniversary!
