a thousand days of happiness
When I was in my twenties (long before I had babies), and Eric and I were working to survive, as so many young couples are wont to do, I was asked quite often what I wanted to do or be -- presumably when I grew up.
My answer was always the same - and so, so heart-felt.
"I want to chase frogs in the creek with my son.
"I want to take art classes on Wednesday nights.
"I want to sit on the porch sipping lemonade while watching my lace curtains blowing in the breeze."
I am sure to a very many people, there is much lacking in such dreams!
But the funny thing is that those very things so define my life.
I play with my babies.
I explore and create and express my Self in a thousand different ways.
I sit in bliss while gazing and dreaming.
It sounds so simple - and maybe it is. I cannot imagine any life being more fulfilling or happy or rich than this beautiful one of mine.
This post begins a month of gratitude.
Because I am so very grateful.
