Do you ever just stop, mid step, and think about how perfect life is?

I mean everyone wants to win the lottery and never worry about bills and such, but beyond that, do you ever stop and count how many wonderful things are in your life?

And when you do, a glow sort of envelopes you, and you stand there holding an empty coffee cup and just smile?

You feel an irresistible urge to grab who ever is closest and kiss them?

That was my weekend.

What a great uplifting post. And yes...I DO do that sometimes. Like I realize how lucky I am to have the husband I've got. He really is a great guy. Even when I hate him because I have PMS. LOL

Short, but poignant. We all need weekends like that. They are revitalizing. Thanks for sharing your happiness.

Well I'm sure you deserved that kind of weekend. I had one of those moments today during my neice's twins' baptism. They were born at 1 lb. and most people thought they'd not make it. Sometimes, you just have to smile and be thankful.

Someday, we're going to have to chat. My dd has a bf that lives in your town! Small, small world.
