Don’t worry… this won’t be a “list” post or it would number in the thousands, at least. I’m just sitting here feeling very lucky (read: blessed) and I want to jot down a few reasons.
I’m lucky because two of my best friends decided to leave food on my porch this week. I dunno if I’m looking a little lean and mangy these days, or if I just have amazing friends… but the donuts and fresh fruit sure were delicious. 🙂
I’m lucky because I married the best man for me. Period. He proposed three years ago this week, and when I look back on what we’ve been through together, I’m in awe of his love for me. I never would have guessed three years ago how deep and unconditional his love was. I’m sure the experiences we’ve had since have deepened it, but he loved me from the beginning. And he loves me still.
I’m lucky because when I looked outside today, a beautiful soft snow was falling. Everything looks so fresh and clean. It feels like a new beginning. That’s a feeling I didn’t expect to get until the spring.
As it turns out, there are new beginnings, even in the middle of winter.
