I woke up this morning and my children were there to remind me why I am happy to wake up each and every morning and I am setting up to open my own shop, that I will fill with all the funky crazy little things things that I make and I hope people will feel happy when they see the uniqueness of my creations That makes me happy too
I've just started to learn to drive (right word?) a motor ship. I have a day off tomorrow for the first time in 3 weeks. I recently and finally plucked up the courage to place videos of myself singing in YouTube. Then there are the other general things in life; great health, an interesting job, enough money etc., etc.
The sun is shining brightly and the laundry is almost done. Dinner is thawing and the children are happy. We are all healthy. Oh, and I found one of my articles today, that I had written on paper, and lost!
Kids! I am about to have dozens of em! Actually it's three, but it seems like dozens! My twin granddaughters will grab each of my smallest fingers and tow me where they want me to go, my grandson will probably leap off the fridge on to me as I pass, I will be exhausted and probably bruised at the end of the day.
I'm with you, Earnest. I have only one of the age to grab a finger and tow, but 4 more that might jump off a fridge. Seems like a dozen sometimes, but sure wouldn't trade them for anything in the world. They make my world worth living many days.
Water aerobics! It's the greatest thing I've discovered since urban mushing. What a great way to exercise and get cool at the same time.
Griffin the malamute - I almost passed on getting a puppy because 'we're too old', 'too hard to start over', 'too, too, too' - all the reasons I thought I couldn't do it a year ago and lo and behold, I've had one of the best years of my life. Got back into urban mushing and have had a year fulled with laughter - all because of a cute little (big) puppy named the Griff...and my very indulgent and loving husband who agreed to start life over again.
I have a husband who adores me and takes me dancing. I'm unemployed, but that means I can spend more time on HubPages, my websites and maybe even get my flamenco book finished. It also means I'm getting along to the gym and I think I may have actually lost a little bit of weight!
I just won a legal battle over an inheritance, which had dragged on for a year. I now have the full amount in an account and will hopefully be buying my flat/apartment with it very soon. At least I am crossing my fingers that the sums add up!
My fiance will soon be moving to my town to live with me, once she has finished her Masters Degree, which I am very excited about... right now I am lonely, I miss her.
I'm planning a motorcycle trip by myself to see my step-daughter...she lives too far away...but...it'll be my first trip by myself....not too far - it'll take me about 3 days one way to get there...it'll be fun and a good experience for me! can't wait to see her.
I am moving house tomorrow to one of the most beautiful scenic areas of the world, with one of the most beautiful girls in the world and i am on holiday since yesterday - the only downside in my life is that I only have two months holiday to go !
Spending a week at the beach on my own with my children. We are having a great time. Because I had been going with hubby on his business travels lately I had not spend too much time with my little ones, so this is a very good time for the children and I to have fun together!
My warm, snuggly husband got out of bed this morning to be promptly replaced by a cold-nosed dog licking my back, prompting me to get up and get to work in a job that I love.
I'm now five months pregnant, and for all the somersaults baby has been turning s/he must be really healthy. My son comes back here in two days, and my stepson will be coming to visit for a month next week...I finally get to meet him!
It only gets better from here on in, you'll soon find yourself wanting to clean - everything. As you get nearer to your due date, you may want to start stocking the freezer with ready to eat meals, like Spaghetti, meatloaf, Mac-n-cheese...etc. Helps when its dinner time for baby and you!
Congratulations, your journey isn't over, you're beginning a new chapter.
After a grueling move from one state to another, downsizing from a 3200 sq ft home into three rooms, realizing the potential of my home going into foreclosure before I can sell it, I woke up this morning okay with all of it.
I felt happy to be alive, happy to have so much less to worry about, and happy that my children arrived back from their vacations well and in good spirits.
I think I'm learning to be okay with what is. Other things outside me may not be completely okay, but I'm okay. There is still abundance in life.
Coming to terms with issues that are not controllable in your life is one heck of a step forward. Remember, you must always conquer the valleys, before you can reach the mountains, to start all over again.
Remember, God is there to help you find your steps, to carry you through troubled times and to offer a hand when you are unsure of where you are going.
My favorite quote is "Do not worry about tomorrow, for I am already there". Matthew 6:34
Keeping you in my prayers for a safe journey into the future.
yea right!...you joke...18? he'll be around forever.......better start saving now for that house you're going to buy him so he can move out by the time he's 35....you're in TO right?...always thought you TO guys liked to stay home as long as possible.......
This hub positively created a wave of goodness. When will I be able to spread the same wave of cheer among the troubled youth of India? Problem children attending normal schools? Troubling themselves and troubling their parents too! All the ODDs and ADDs.
What with all the deaths in the family (hubpages family) positive proof that atheists burn for eternity and joy at Mr Obama's shocking inability (sarcasm - he is a politician so I was not expecting much) to change so...
Maybe I'm tired, maybe I don't want to argue any longer, but there is enough people that come through these pages to do something good. I've seen it before with the letters to the terminally ill boy. Lets do it again...
Much of what I read on the internet, newspaper and especially social network sites like Facebook is NEGATIVE. People often see to be complaining about something. I admit there is a lot about which we can and maybe even...
