Guess what. My days are stacked pretty damn well even if I do struggle some days to hold it together. In only six words, I am:
Learning gratefulness for my unearned gifts,
Basking in these scorching summer days
Knowing I will miss them soon.
For instance, there was the caramel frappuccino sipped in the car while driving my younger sister to the hospital where they'll hopefully work out whatever's happening with her lungs. (Never a good thing for a girl who's had a double lung transplant.)
Taking my son to meet his hair idol (aka Glenn Willey, meterologist) and being seriously impressed by said model's ability to entertain and engage a roomful of children.
Stumbling upon the most beautiful rendition of INXS' 'Never Tear us Apart'. And then falling even more in love with this funky and fun cover of 'Need You Tonight.' (Have I mentioned that INXS featured prominently in my childhood? Uh, yeah.)
Wrapping up the week with Meanie Weenie at the pool, where she traversed an entire length of the pool to shoot me in the face with a Toy Story water squirter because I was talking on the phone rather than watching her fake swim against the side of the pool. Word on the street is she is my mini-me. I like it.
