Day 204 – Today Is Enough

19 HUGS, 4 children,  9 adults (1 husband, 2 employees at the waste disposal site, 2 friends at Smith’s Nursery, 4 neighborhood friends)

I have often found myself striving for something in life. To have more money, conquer certain goals, to be a better person. The thing is, I see others and I want them to accept that they are perfect just the way they are. I believe it is time to start seeing that in myself.

Today was perfect. No, perfect isn’t strong enough. I don’t know that there are words that can describe today. What happened? Nothing. Everything. Hugs. Love. Fighting. Screaming. Peace. What made it so great is that I spent each moment living it. I was not looking toward a better day, a better life, a better me. I relished the aggravating moments in trying to get my kids out the door. I embraced the awkward moment when I realized I should have been the one asking for a hug not the other way around. I joyfully extended invitations to 2 neighbors for a girls dinner knowing none of our husbands would be around. I giddily sipped each glass of wine through engaging conversation.  I lovingly tucked my children in to bed tonight without a moment’s thought to what tomorrow might bring. Today was enough.

Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
