(Shout out to my camp friends!)
Today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine.
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine.
A million tomorrows shall all pass away,
Ere I forget, all the joy that is mine
I've been having one of those days. Oh, but not one of those days, rather one of those days where all of the zen-ness of the planets being aligned, and the stars and the heavens surround me. I'm taking a break from being a smart-ass and just sayin' ... thank you big ol' world. Thank you for taking such good care of me.
I was pulling our little red wagon, with my two kiddos behind me, warm wind in my face after a day of just simply, being a Mom, and I realized, this is it. This is what I had always been waiting for. Those days in high school, or college where I wasn't sure if I'd get the career I had dreamed of (teaching, and I did), the family I was wishing for, the husband and friends to support me, my family to rely on. I'm here.
If I could show that jamie of ten or fifteen years ago, what would become of her it may have taken some of the worrying away. Of course, it would have taken the adventure and suspense away too, but lookie here, this is it. And although there is much, much ahead yet to be discovered, I am so proud and thankful for today.
