I have just turned 45 years old. My sweet husband took me out for a great dinner tonight and I reflected on where I am in my life right now. Quite simply, I am happy. That might sound a little contrite but it's kinda a big deal. If you really think about it or look around you, how many people do you know that are truly happy with themselves or where they are in their life?
It's been a long and bumpy road getting here and my life is far from perfect but I am finally at that place where I know who I am, like that person and don't give two craps what anyone else thinks. It's very refreshing.
We will always have trials and tribulations, bills and unplanned goat pregnancies, but I get to live my life the way I want. I find joy in the little things I get to see everyday. A baby goat does a hop flip off her mom's back - too cute! My son and daughter run in the kitchen door with a new plant they found in the woods - what is this? Let's look it up on the Internet. My oldest daughter told me today she missed me all day. She hasn't been spending enough time with me lately - she's 18, that's a miracle in itself!
My life is joyFULL!
