This was one of those mornings when I was trying to fit way too much into the time I had, and I had about a million things on my mind. Rushing around, I dropped cereal all over the floor, I forgot and left laundry in the washer so it will now sit wet all day, the garage door wouldn’t close properly, I was running late to work…. you know the drill. Then I stepped outside and headed to work. And it is one of those spectacularly beautiful late-spring days. Crystal clear, sunny, dry, perfect temperature. Everything is green and blooming and beautiful. If the weather wasn’t enough of a sign, I got one more — as I was stopped at an intersection right before I turned in to work, one of the cars driving through the other way was a hearse. And I realized that I am so happy to be alive and healthy and here today. I am glad I can complain about spilled cereal and soggy clothes, and I am glad I have so much going on with my life and my family that I can feel this full of “stuff.”
So ladies, be happy today with your craziness. Because it sure beats the alternative.
