I spend most of the day looking for the time to write.
The thing is, it only takes 5 minutes to write a blog.
Look at the clock, and start writing. Five minutes later, stop and hit publish. No editing, no re-reading, no re-writing.
I’m going to do this more often. Because I need to write, and it only takes 5 minutes.
First, I want to go back a little on what I wrote about the other day. Life is really rough sometimes, but not as rough for me as it is for so many people out there. And my little bit of self pity, no matter how real it was when it was happening, is actually rather embarrassing when I look at what is going on around me.
Yeah, I’m going back to work. But I’m gainfully employed, and I’m feeding my family. I’m keeping us in a house. I’m paying for our gas, and clothes and… and everything. Until that changes, I need to be thankful that I have a job, so the rest doesn’t need to be worried about.
I have to beautiful kids. I have a wonderful husband. I have a body that sustains me, and does all that I ask of it.
I have a really good life. I just need to get that out there.
Second. There is nothing I enjoy more than spending an afternoon with my husband and son, walking around outside, looking at what there is to see and listening to what there is to hear. I love having Ruby in the baby wrap, and the sun on my face, and a beautiful breeze. Today was a spectacular day.
And third. I’m so damn thankful for the friends I have. The ones that listen when I’m ready to dump, and the ones that say “Happy Friday” and give me a reason to smile, and the ones that let me be there for them, even if it’s just someone to talk to when THEY need it. I love you all.
