Friday Share

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. 
So that's all I'm going to write today.  I am going to plug through this to-do list until the babe awakes and then I think it's off to make the best of this happy Friday!
