Last night I was laying in bed reading, the hubby was playing with Wall-E, and the daughter unit was in the living room watching The Voice.
I sat there just smiling. This huge smile on my face just smiling. Then I realized. …
Yes, I’m struggling with my weight, but I’m working on it.
Yes, the daughter unit drives me bonkers, but she’s a teenager and what teenager doesn’t driver their parents bonkers?
Yes, I’m having a really hard time finding a job closer to home, but I have a job. That is more than I can say for others.
Yes, we rent, but we are hoping to be able to purchase the house from our landlord *soon*.
Yes, I have to drive an hour to and from work, but it isn’t an hour spent in traffic all the time.
Yes, I’m doubting myself as a writer.
Yes, my blog doesn’t hit an astronomical amount of “hits”, but those who do visit, I cherish very much. Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit my corner of the internets.
Yes, I have lots issues, but I’m working on them.
Yes, it is true I don’t have a large group of friends, but those few that I do call friends, I have been friends with for YEARS and I would trust them with my LIFE!
Yes, I haven’t found an Agent yet, but in the beginning when I first sent out queries for The Five Angels, my writing was very rough and I learned a lot from that experience. I have since refined my manuscript and am trying again.
and you know what…
I have a wonderful family who loves me, cares for me and I know that there are those out there that can not say that.
I love my life. I can go to the beach whenever I feel like it, the weather is wonderful, it has rained, I have a very well behaved Prince Wall-E Magnifico Puppinio and while there are struggles …
I WOULDN’T TRADE ANY OF IT!
I am truly happy and I haven’t been able to say that in a long time.
( If anyone starts singing that Pharrell Williams “Happy” song, I will personally smack you upside the head with a fish! /shudder I hate that song. I first heard it when I was a little irked leaving work, and all I can do now is sing it like I’m Smiling Bob! Not to mention that every single time I get in the car I hear that song. Doesn’t matter if I’m off to work, if I’m dropping the daughter unit off at dance, or if I’m just going 2 blocks to the grocery store… THAT DAMN SONG IS ALWAYS ON THE RADIO EVERY SINGLE TIME I GET INTO THE CAR! )
