Things are going great. Not because any significant thing has changed in our lives, but simply the way that I look at them has changed. I have always considered myself a person filled with joie de vivre, but I had a few years where I saw the negative side of things. I saw what I wanted my life to be, but not what it is. My life is here and now, perfect in its imperfection. I feel more in tune with what it is that I want and what I need. I feel connected to the kids, and Jeff without trying to put false expectations or unrealistic goals about the way we should do some thing.
So, today I celebrate today.
A few things that are making me happy today
These little soap things that I made for the kitchen and kids bathroom. Nothing like 2 dollar bottles and some old rub-ons from my scrapbook stash.
This book, just purchased on a whim, but that I have been eyeing for a long time.
