When one door SLAMS shut, two more open with balloons, bells, confetti and whistles…





I am so very thankful today. 



I am SO happy that I have a job. And while it might not be the one I THOUGHT I had, I have no right to complain.  I am sure that this path I'm walking is one I am meant to be on, and that there is someone at my new school who NEEDS ME, or someone there who I might need.  (And wouldn't THAT be ironic.)  I have to remember that I am the only one who can decide if I am happy, or not.  And I choose happy.  




Either way, I am feeling pretty damn good. (Frankly, I am so happy that I think I might have lost my mind.) 



And while ANOTHER door (that will remain anonymous) might have slammed shut, another one has mysteriously appeared.  I am on my way to another surprising  (no cost- Anonymous) weekend (not far from home) that will involve a wedding, some precious time with an old, old friend, and another night with some family members who are very special to me.


Tonight I wonder:  While The Powers That Be often spend an inordinate amount of time shaking up my world, they spend an equal amount of time blessing it.




And the fact that my crazy brain only seems to remember the GOOD, is another blessing altogether.



I hope your weekend rocks, and I have a feeling that mine will, as well.  (I am blessed; incredibly, incredibly blessed.)  And I can't WAIT to fill you all in.  I am spilling this time; spilling like nobody's business. 





(You have all lifted me more than you know.)

You make me smile on a daily basis. You are my inspiration. Lord knows I need to improve my attitude sometimes. Can't wait to hear about the weekend. I'll be thinking about you while I ride my bike (the pedal one, not the motorized one) across Georgia next week. That's a lie; I probably won't. But I'll think about you when I get into camp and check my blog reader, I promise!

Glad you are embracing the change.

Oh, lordy. I didn't just say "The Change" to a woman, did I?
