Argh, I want to write. But I feel so busy. Yesterday slipped away. And today quickly is too.
I want to work and knock off my to-do list.
I want to play with Alex who is home for his very last day of summer.
And I want to shop because it is tax free weekend.
Oh the choices. Didn't we just talk about my inability to make decisions?
And I want to write. I want to share about a great conversation I had with Alex after an amazing run this morning. It was about balance. And about how I don't have any. Duh. I want to share the wonderful day I had yesterday. Helping out a friend (which really helped me out), grabbing coffee with another, celebrating a long and vibrant life of a friend that ended this week, and dinner out with the a group of friends. Yesterday I spent the entire day with my closest friends. I didn't get much done. My to-do list sat unfinished. But I was with the people I am closest to in the world. And life doesn't get much sweeter than that.
Last night we sat outside on a patio as we ate. I got up to use the restroom inside and walking back toward the door I stopped for a split-second to take in the view of our group through a window. We had just left the viewing at the funeral home. As I took in the view out the window I realized how intensely grateful I am for everything I have. For my baby girl and my loving husband. For the best friends a girl could ask for. For people who love me unconditionally despite my inability to make decisions and find balance. I am so incredibly thankful.
