I was thinking today about how blessed I am to have some really special people in my life. Friends and family who are there in the thick and thin. Who are genuine and transparent. Who encourage me in my endeavors with out selfish motive or jealousy. Who help me to become who I am supposed to be.
I appreciate them. And it reminds me of all of the things that I appreciate in life and in others that make me want to be a better person. Such as...
-A clean house
-a pup who is always happy to see me
-a husband who is always happy to see me
-a hug on a bad day
-RAIN (some would be appreciated anytime soon!)
-a warm place to live
-food to share
-morning pedicures with friends
-the pursuit of knowledge
-the realization that I don't know everything
-an inquisitive mind
-friends like those I've listed above
I think think things have just been a little crazy busy lately, and I didn't even realize how much pressure I have been feeling. So when I got home, even thought I had a long list of things I wanted to accomplish before my head hit the pillow, I just sat down and caught up on a couple of episodes of Parenthood. It was the perfect medicine to relax, and watch a show that I could cry at. And I was alone, so I just let it all out. And I'm feeling like I can appreciate what is around me even a little bit more now.
And because you know I hate to blog with out a photo...
