I was on my way home from scaling these steps for exercise.
Made me think of all that I have to be happy about, and the week isn't over yet!
As much as it pains me to do those steps, they make me feel alive. AND I get to have great conversation with my friend. We laugh and wonder why we put ourselves through this every week. We swear we are done with this senseless agony, but by the next week, we are ready to do it all over again.
I've never heard of that before, but I'll take it! I do love a clean car.
Life can certainly hand out lemons. Someone I know is dealing with a recurrence of cancer and is right now stuck in a hospital bed. I hate that life is not fair sometimes. It stinks actually. What I know is that all we get is today. And this gentle soul would love to climb those steps, wash his car, eat cake and not be in that bed. For reasons I don't understand, I am a blessed woman. I have my health, a loving husband, two great kids, and friends that I simply don't deserve. I just don't want to waste any of this gift of life.
This week I am choosing to be fully awake for all those little winks that happen all around me.
I hope you will too.
