I never in my life dreamed of a day when I would be writing or thinking about the year 2012. That number is just so beyond cray cray to me. At least it was back when I was a little shit of a kid.
Yet here we are embarking on another year: 2013.
Mind blowing to me.
Seriously though, how lucky are we to be here today?!
Despite some horrible things happening to us, around us... we're still very lucky to be here today.
Some days can be so hard and trying and tiring but at the end of the day, it's so worth it. Because you had that day and, if you continue to be lucky, you'll have tomorrow, too.
I just feel so immensely blessed.
Every single day I feel so blessed.
It wasn't always like this- oh hell no it wasn't. I've spent most of my life enveloped in so much misery. But then when Lovie came into my life... it just all clicked for me. Everything in my life started making sense. Like really making sense.
When she was born, every single day was magic to me.
And it still is today.
I've spent some time this past year feeling guilty about my gratitude...like maybe I was just sugarcoating life for the sake of this blog (or Facebook or Twitter or our living room walls). But then I realized that that's just everyone else's possible perception and I'm not here to change that. Think what you want to think. Believe what you want to believe.
And if you're lucky enough, like me, you'll think and believe that life is absolutely amazing.
Happy and Healthy New Year!
