More than enough

Written by hootenannie on May 21st, 2010

It’s Friday, and there’s no humidity in Colorado, and last night I walked 10 miles instead of my normal 7.  I’ve hung out with friends (I have friends!) the last two nights in a row, and tomorrow I’m taking my family on a date.  It’s a fantastic hair day and I’m caught up on “Lost” and I’m thinking about buying myself some flowers.  I spend each morning before work on my amazing couch with a cup of coffee and some delectable reading, before heading to an office where I stare out at the Denver skyline.  The Honda still starts every time.  Mom’s eyelashes are starting to grow back.  I have plane tickets to go see friends, and have some good ones coming to see me.  I’m happy where I am, and excited for where I’m headed – because what I have outweighs what I lack, and always has.

Lately, I’ve been smiling so much that my cheeks hurt.

I hope you feel the same way, and soak up a weekend full of simple wonders.  My life is full of them – and today, I’m choosing to remember it.

    i believe it’s kosher to nix the “my poor blog i’ve neglected you, i’m sorry” introductions because everything you say is full of life. even when you describe what you had for brekky or fill us in on the status of the honda (everyone IS, in fact, wondering): everything to write is noteworthy. and this post, while lengthy and grateful and descriptive, is an equal to your other recent posts in that–it is 100% annie, and maybe only morer in that it pleases me to know that your spirits are on the up and up. i know how that goes (up).

    I think I spend a lot of time pondering what I don’t have, instead of relishing what I do. I really connect with the “OMG, I have friends? I have friends!” moment you mention in this post, and it’s nice to have someone arguably dealing with some similar issues to me approaching, handling, and ultimately, positively appreciating the good things. Thank you.
