Wordless Wednesday~ Not so much.

Blueberry Pie

I feel blessed to live the life I have. I really mean that.

I am content with everything and everyone I surround myself with. How great is that?

I've finally reached a peaceful and calm place in my life and if things never change, I'm ok with that. I'm ok with my kitchen that's a little too little for my liking, and my hips that are a little too big, the wrinkles that are starting to surface, the staycations, the "exciting" weekends when we both fall asleep by 8pm, the daily routine, my know-it-all teenagers, the early mornings, the endless laundry and dishes, I'm really ok with it. Crazy but true. I think you just have to make up your mind at some point to accept and appreciate what you have and not always be on a quest for something different or to want something more. I am content and it really frees me.

I'm grateful that Moose made it through a very rough summer and is here by my feet happily wagging his tail.

I'm grateful for a husband who puts up with all my craziness and says "whatever you want honey" way more then any man I know.

I am grateful to have two of the best friends anyone could ask for. Friends who accept me for who I am, who laugh with me and cry with me, and sometimes know me better than I know myself.

I'm grateful for the special people this blog has brought into my life. People who I have never met, but who share a connection with me just the same.

I'm grateful for all the little moments, good and bad, that make my life what it is.

I had to post this vintage postcard, cause how many times do you get too see two turkeys driving a corn cob car with lemon wheels??

Happy Thanksgiving.
