Another candle on that cake today. Despite the fact that Rob is telling the kids I'm 40, though I only LOOK 38, I do indeed have two more years until the big four oh. Someone in this household WILL be 40 in 2013, but not for another six weeks.
This morning as I was lying in bed, trying to ignore the buzz of the alarm clock that had already been slapped into snooze submission three times, I realized how very lucky I am. Everything I need, much of what I want, so many people to love and be loved by, new ideas for a new year.... a good day to be grateful.
If you had told me me twenty years ago that I would be married to a fabulous, funny, smart man and have two clever, healthy, beautiful kids, still be bffs with my bestie and have friends in not one, but two hemispheres who are talented and generous and make my life so much better for knowing each one of them, I would have considered my cup overflowing.
Feeling grateful for the great variety of family and friends who want nothing but good for me in this life. Who are willing to hold my hand on the way, laugh with me, hold me, to just be. I have no clue how I got to be so lucky, but I'll take it with both hands and hug it tight. Thank you for allowing me to share my life with you and for sharing yours with me. I know these are deep thoughts for 6:45 a.m., but there you have it. Forever thankful nor for what I've got, but for who I've got.
