The Sounds of Nature

Life is good.

As I write, I am sitting outside, drinking coffee, watching the sunrise, and listening to the sounds of nature (including picking out the individual sounds-which is not easy). I hear a rooster, a bunch of birds I can’t name (yet), an owl, a bullfrog, and some stupid cars that are interfering with the sounds of nature. In addition, I just got done praying the Rosary with Marky Mark Wahlburg on the Hallow app. I am BLESSED. 

Funny thing…had you caught me writing this two hours ago, my story would have sounded like one of self pity and lament. LOL.

Back to the good…

I am thankful. Thankful to God who loves me despite my laundry list of daily failures. The fact that I’m able to look in the mirror and like what I see is nothing short of a miracle! I’m thankful that He has held me all of my life, patiently waited for me to quit feeling sorry for myself, and become the person He made me to be…stay tuned. I’m not there YET.

I am thankful. Thankful for my husband who leads me in very unconventional ways. The fact that I nag the sh*t out of him and he STILL loves me is beyond my comprehension. 

I am thankful. Thankful for my kids who love me. They also forgave me for the mistakes I made raising them BEFORE I recognized the need for that forgiveness. They are such gifts.

I am thankful. Thankful in particular for my middle child. He arguably got the worst of me because we are so similar it’s scary. He isn’t perfect, but he has said some dang near perfect things that have helped me grow as a person. He just needs to work on his delivery system, but if I’m being honest, my modeling wasn’t the best, soooo….

I have SO. MUCH. MORE. to be thankful for, but this will do for today. 

I will go back to enjoying the sounds of nature. 

Life is good.
