My batteries are recharged. I’m feeling refreshed and energized and I’m ready to tackle any challenges given at hand. Life has a funny way of making everything even out. We all travel through the highest of peaks and the lowest of valleys; some of us even have to travel the long way around the mountain, and that’s okay too. In the long run, we all get to the place where we belong, a soul satisfying place.
“The grass is always greener where you water it.”
There are still layers of ice and snow on the ground that proves that winter is still among us, showing zero signs of spring. Even through the layers of white fluffy snow, my grass is green- a nice shade of chartreuse to be exact. In fact, I’m seeing an endless array of grass blades sprinkled over acres of prairies, nicely tucked under a canvas of bright manganese blue skies. And to add to the romance of my daydream, let’s add puffball clouds, bare feet, yellow sundresses, daisy hair wreaths, and picnics on patchwork quilts.
Are you feeling me? Are you picking up what I’m putting down?
That’s right folks, we have orders!
*DING! HAPPY TIME!*
This is big life changing news people! My heart is twisting and turning and flipping in so many ways, all in different directions. There are so many emotions running through my body at this exact moment that I’m having trouble wrapping my head around it.
I’m blessed. Absolutely, 100%, no doubt about it, I. Am. Blessed!
I’m calling all the people I love, and shouting out the good news...
