Don't ask me where I'll be in five years or what I'll be doing
because I have literally no idea.
If I could have seen where I am now five years ago,
I would have thought I was dreaming.
I just really like enjoying the small things where I am now.
It makes all the difference I find, when you notice good things
and don't focus on the negative.
Like the other morning when I parked my car and saw a rabbit
by this building. How come it lives in town?
What does it do here? What is it eating??
It made me happy to think about a family of rabbits living
under an abandoned building!
Watching Annie learn to swim.
Honestly she is getting more fun out of this
than any other thing my kids have done over the last 23 years.
It is unbelievable how happy it makes her
and what a highlight to our week it is.
Now that I have sorted out my work situation
I am LOVING being creative again. Even one row of knitting a day.
It feels so good to be making stuff again.
I'm not saying that I don't have bad days,
or that I don't feel negative sometimes,
but on the whole there are enough little good things sprinkled about
that you know your life is good.
For me, my life is about the little things,
the things other people don't catalogue,
but they are the things that make me truly happy.
I'm grateful. As Winnie the Pooh said...
Weeds are flowers, too,
once you get to know them.
