We are in full-blown wedding gear here. Hubby is in a wedding tomorrow for one of his bffs. We have spent the week with the bride and groom having fun, getting ready and enjoying life. I also have been working on THE project. The one I have been avoiding because I’m scared of it 🙂 I managed to write a whole chapter and erase it all. Nice. Not even sure how I did that but it is gone, baby gone. So today’s Friday Five are intangible .
1. Good attitude. Lets face it bad things are going to happen. It is how we deal with them that shapes the quality of our lives. frankly I don’t have time to sit around and cry over it. Not that I didn’t throw myself a little pity party, but one thing I learned is when you have a pity party have and end time. Like you can be upset about this for 3 min or 45 or a day what ever you feel but then its done move on. This was a great lesson from some great women.
2. Little giggling from the back of the car. Or telling (and retelling) elaborate stories. Listening to her sing for anyone, and watching her want to clink glasses with everyone and say “cheers” each time. That kid just cracks me up.
3. Having lovely friends. Some old some new and all dear to me. I am so very lucky
4. a good cup of tea.
5.knowing myself. Knowing myself well enough to know that I want my mother’s day to be a certain way so I shopped for the foods I wanted and gave my hubby the tour of the food in the fridge and told him exactly what I wanted. Maybe in a few years I wont have to break it down like that but right now I do. Know what Its OK! Just because he doesn’t know all my hearts desires doesn’t mean he doesn’t love me or doesn’t want to give them to me. Heck this is just our second mothers day and we are all still learning.
here is my little thought for the morning
because at the end of the day “women’s rights”, “gay rights” and rights of the non religious majority are just human rights. How we treat those with less power is a true depiction on how we are as humans.
