I wanted to take a moment to let you know that I think you absolutely rock. I’m sure I sometimes forget to mention this and it’s probably been some time since I said it out loud. You see, lately I’ve been hit with a number of dilemmas, obstacles, disappointments, etc. From a death in the family to a disappointed client, and from a broken heater to a broken promise, it seems like my luck just hasn’t been so good lately. So, I’m sorry that I’ve let those little distractions keep me from acknowledging all the awesomeness you’ve been providing, as well.
I want to reassure you that I understand that, while your actions are sometimes mysterious, you ultimately leave me smiling and grateful for the many wonders you provide. And while I’ve certainly allowed myself to wallow in self pity during these moments of darkness and frustration, it’s only been for brief periods of time. Why? Because every time that pit in my stomach returns, something fabulous happens to make me smile and feel calm again.
It’s the little things, like that random text from my husband today that said, “Just a reminder that you are awesome.” Or the gorgeous full moon that appeared in front of me yesterday and made my son “oooh” and “awwww” with excitement and admiration. It’s the phone call from an old friend when you least expect it and the funny memes that make me giggle at the oddities of life. There are so many moments that fill me with gratitude for all you’ve given me and I’m thankful that they outweigh the ugliness that sometimes coexists in this life of my mine.
Essentially, I just want you to know that even when I’m blinded by tears or fear, my eyes are always open and taking in the beauty of this world, this universe. So thank you for providing me with the capacity for gratitude. You so totally rock.
Always a pleasure reading about life from your perspective! Keep up the great writing!
