Each day is a blessing-not a burden a choice-not a chore
And each day is beautiful.
I have come to the realization, again (funny how life keeps reminding you), that...right now, life is perfect. It may not be what I expected, what I had planned...but it's part of the bigger plan. And I'm okay with that.
I may not have a clean house, or fancy things. Hell most days I'm lucky if the things I do have don't have food spilled or body fluids smeared on them. I may not have a lot of money, but money can't buy everything...and we have enough to keep us safe, happy, and full.
I do have a wonderful husband who loves, and even more precious, cherishes me. Not to mention the amazing father he is. I have two beautiful, happy, healthy, and sometimes almost too smart for their parent's own sanity children, and I have a healthy child growing inside me. I have gratitude in my heart and a song in my soul. And that you can take to the bank! (and the grave...)
I was singing the other night to Abby before bedtime, "The Dream Song" as we call it from Cinderella. I got to the part about "Have faith in your dreams, and someday...Your rainbow will come shining through.." and I realized as my daughter was 'singing' (its adorable, really) with me I have my rainbows. I still have my dreams, aspirations, and goals for the future. But I am a damn lucky woman to know my rainbows have shone through.
Through all the storms and clouds of worry and doubt my rainbows shine through to shower me in light and color, encouraging-almost daring me- to dance in the rain...
