Today, I am happy. It is Friday. We have no plans for the weekend. We both need a time of sacred space to enjoy some much needed down time, together.
The weather is perfect. My allergies are not acting up and I’ve got the ceiling fans on, along with the windows open. Part of my happiness is the fact that I have a vacation coming up. It has been a year since we’ve seen our beloved friends. That is far too long when your hearts are entwined.
Unfortunately, my husband, David is not able to come with me on this trip. I’ve not taken a trip, by myself….ever! I have taken trips with girlfriends, but to travel somewhere on my own is new. Once I get to my destination, my friends have planned a great week for me. It’s just the getting there part that is a new adventure for me.
As I look back on the last several months, I see lots of new adventures we’ve embarked on together. It’s really been a good several months for us. What a welcome relief! Much of 2011 was challenging. 2012 is much more pleasant.
Today, I am happy. We have been blessed with a continual stream of lovely new friends. Since I am a relational person, this makes me very happy. We have amazing old friends, too! Staying in contact with them and learning the new, I wonder if my heart can expand any more than it already has.
Friends are such treasures. If you are reading this, then you are most likely, one of my treasures! Thank you.
So, today, I am enjoying my happiness.
