So, all in all, it turned out to be a pretty good day. I got to see my dad ❤ for the second time in a week (he lives about an hour away so we don’t see each other often enough)*Thanks again Dad. I love you!!*
Our bed arrived on time and is SCREAMING my name, my mom took my son to karate (because I was out in my dad’s neck of the woods) and got to see how awesome he’s become at perfecting his moves, Bill doesn’t have to go back to work until Monday which means we leave for Boston tomorrow morning… and those are just a few of the things I’m thankful for. Let’s not forget the food in our stomachs, the roof over our head, our health, and happiness, and LOVE. It’s all around us… I’m suffocating in it! As I type this, all the kids are outside playing. They aren’t glued to video games. Normally I’d find all the screeching and yelling annoying, but today it sounds like music. Beautiful music. I know that at least one of the kids playing has a new bed to sleep in tonight, because we gave ours to them. And my little buddy Kyler (3 years old) has a Wii to play because my son gave it to him (instead of selling it so that he could get money). I’d say he’s got this “Doing Good” stuff down pat.
I’ve started reading a new book, which has inspired me to write yet another book; a different book. The ideas are never-ending. I’ve been writing in my little notebook all day! A sentence that I want to add, a thought that might be the title of one of the chapters. I don’t want to put the computer down!! If I were to stay awake all night, I bet I’d have it finished. But my eyes are getting heavy, and I’m drained. Perhaps I’ll spend the ride to Boston writing in between admiring the scenery. I wish we were there already. I can’t wait for this mini vacation. We’ve got a full itinerary, but I’m actually looking forward to it. Bill has a way of calming me down, making the panic disappear. Social phobia? Panic Disorder? Major Depressive Disorder? Yea… none of them stand a chance when Bill’s around. They try, but he’s so much stronger. They have FINALLY met their match!!
Life is good… so I’m going to go enjoy the rest of my night, and I hope you all do the same.
☮ ❤ and 😀 always,
~Kate… an extremely thankful Kate.
