My granddad once told me that if you were living right you'd think that every year was the best year of your life. Well, at the time I thought he was crazy. I was 20 something, and he was 60 something. HOW in the world could he be having a better life than me.. I must say that after several years worth of wisdom I now see his point. I wouldn't trade places with anyone in the world . I wake up every day excited to be me. I love my life, my husband, my house, my art, my friends, and my precious amazing kids..... I laugh, and cry more than anyone I know and wouldn't change a thing. I used to think I was just born somewhere out of my intended time slot. But, now I realize I just needed to be me. My new favorite quote (from a movie I watched with me teenage daughter) says
"Be yourself.... Life's too short to be anyone else. WOW !! Who ever wrote that understood how to find the greatest joy of living.
