I have been putting off writing this tonight because I don’t really have much to say, though I had a really awesome day.
I started with a massage which is always wonderful! Came home and did a little accounting work before leaving again to accept a friend’s invitation to step outside my comfort zone and do something for others at the same time. I have to say, I really had a good time, met some lovely new people and got to chat with my very busy friend for awhile! She is another wonderful example for me of being warm, kind and big hearted but NOT a doormat!
More and more often, I’m reminded what amazing women have come out of my high school, and they are all setting me such incredible examples. While my bar isn’t set as high as theirs, at least it’s set! My path may not allow me to reach the heights of generosity and goodness they have reached, but that doesn’t mean I can’t reach whatever level I can, even this late in the game. I am incredibly blessed to have such wonderful women serving as examples for what I can do!
Unfortunately for me, I allowed the late hour and growling stomach to let me make a very poor choice, dinner-wise. I stopped at The Hat for a pastrami burger and onion rings (I wish they made a small order as I end up throwing about 90% of them away!). The heartburn which followed the meal was definitely not worth it! Back to veggies and healthy stuff for me tomorrow.
But the best news of the day is that the kids will be here by tomorrow night, and will stay until Thursday night. My daughter also informed me that she’d be taking the train up and staying for a couple of days on my birthday weekend! (doing the happy dance here!)
So life continues on and I’m doing my best to mix things up. Meanwhile, my big, handsome boy, Dylan, is giving me kisses and telling me it’s time for bed.
My gratitudes tonight are:
1. I am grateful for amazing girl friends.
2. I am grateful for stepping outside of my box and doing something for someone else.
3. I am grateful for kitty love.
4. I am grateful for writing almost every day now.
5. I am grateful for finally getting used to daylight savings, and getting up earlier again!
Love and light.
