I spent most of the day in the car, listening to an amazing book on tape. I drove four hours to Pittsburgh, Oregon to watch my Sassy play an amazing field hockey game. (They lost, but that is a lesson in itself.)
I screamed, jumped and cheered for two hours, and then enjoyed the company of smelly, sweaty, amazing girls and their families. I also ate some GREAT tailgate food, but we'll ignore that for now. (Can't one of you run a thousand miles for me tomorrow???)
I drove the same distance HOME afterwards, all the while thinking of my darling Bitchy - who was taking care of the animals who feel incredibly neglected as of late. Sure, she's incredibly Bitchy at times- but she is incredibly amazing, as well. (God, I love that girl.)
I also spent an inordinate amount of time missing my Golden Boy. I thought about Parent Alienation- and what it really means. (More about that soon.) My heart is broken in a million pieces, and missing my boy, but it is mended daily by the love and support I feel from my girls.
I won't elaborate yet, but I WILL say that this particular snippet is a reminder of my life's motto. I love each day. I thank God each morning when I wake up, and I am so thankful for all that i DO have.
And what I have? It's incredible.
Enjoy. (please, please watch.)
