Do you ever have moments when you are driving maybe and you kind of start reflecting on your day, or your week or last month and you realize just how happy you are?! Well that's been me. Just a happy girl over here. The last year has been a lot of reminders of just how short life is. The older I get, the more I enter into the reality that life doesn't stop. You can't press pause, and you are not exempt from the hurt the world brings. My childhood felt very excused from hurt and pain. I don't remember ever experiencing real sadness other than maybe that first time in 6th grade when I looked in the mirror after my braces were put on. That was a sad moment... but still. I got over it. But I continue to learn what it means to enjoy when the sun shines and when the song comes on that's your absolute favorite. To dance when you feel like it, and to smile as often as possible.
Today is the first day of my 3 day weekend and Tonight I am going to the Blake Shelton concert with a guy I plan on holding hands with all evening :)
And if you need me, I will just be over here smiling...
Love and my face hurts,
