I was out pretty late last night. I’m usually in bed by 10 at the latest, but my natural circadian rhythm makes me an early to bed, early to rise kind o’ gal. When I was driving home at 11:00 last night, all alone in my mini-van on the snowy roads, I had a moment. It hit me. Life is beautiful.
Sure, we all tend to appreciate life, but every now and again, there’s a moment of pure bliss when you realize that life is beautiful and all is good.
I started out over at my favorite diaper store. It was late, but we ended up sitting on the floor and just talking for two hours. It was a wonderful happy fun chat. Then I stopped by a friend’s house to drop off some diapers that we’d ordered together and ended up picking up some diapers for Cloth for a Cause.
When I was heading back, that was when I had my “life is beautiful” moment.
I have a wonderful husband that I love and loves me. I am a stay at home mom to two beautiful children. I have a teenager who is growing into a responsible young man, and he’s finally living up to his potential. I have my hobbies. I have my wonderful pups. I’m active with a charity that I really believe in. I have great friends. I have a wonderful extended family. I live in a beautiful place and am surrounded by natural beauty as soon as I walk out the door.
In spite of all of the frustrations that happen every day, in the end, life is beautiful, and I’m so fortunate to have the life that I have.
Have you had a “life is beautiful” moment?
