That's because I was looking but did not see.
It's been 4 years or so now, life has happened
and I am grateful.
I have a job still in this terribly terribly unstable
and roller coaster economy,
the love of family who stand by me
and friends who share their ears and hearts with me.
He asks little from us, but gives us so much
yet half the time we think and feel
it's not nearly enough, and we're never contented.
Weather 's hot but not that crazy.
The plants are still green and flowering.
The children will still moan and groan,
and I will still nag and push
but that's life.
I like quiet but I also miss the noise.
Is that how we're made, to live with noise and silence; to have one and sometimes we must have the other. Extremes and boredom keep us afloat and living.
In spite of everything that has happened , I know I am blessed.
It doesn't matter how anyone else judges.
I don't aim for perfect, just better than OK.
