The best things in life.
As I lay here at work, which is also where I live most of the summer. (BTW, work is called The Woodland's Foundation - it is a place for children and adults of all ages with chronic illnesses and disabilities to come to camp. I am a Unit Coordinator, or in other words, a counselor.) I began to stumble, because no one is really around and since I do not get the internet from my room I had to come over to the lounge. So I stumble. I come across a photo of "The best things in life." As I read over it again and again, I notice that all of these wonderful things on this list really are the best things in life. Like this morning, I stayed at a friend's house down in the city and I had to be at my other job at 9, which is early for a Saturday, especially when you have worked all week. I woke up at 5:45 and felt refreshed, then noticed I had a good 2 hours of a good solid sleep left. I took full advantage of it of course! Last night I made some new friends and got to spend time with older ones. It turned out to be a great night. I sing every time I get in the shower, even if it is in my head. The sunset. I love watching the sunset over the city and yesterday as I drove into the burgh', I got to see the wonderful sunset over the city. Bryan called me today on my way to dinner with my parents, "Hey you, I really miss you," he said "I think I will come home this weekend!" I got a small tear in my eye just because of the fact that this is the first summer Bryan isn't in MOS or DEPLOYED and of course I work if not everyday, everyday. So today really was one of those really, really good days. Oh yeah, I was early to work this morning and I stopped and got an Iced Light Mocha at Starbucks. Such an amazing way to start the morning! Especially when it had been a long week and it was going to be an even longer day.
Can I just say how much I love people and how much working a shift @ Dick's Sporting Goods turns me off to them. People are so unappreciative of so much. They should be lucky they have such loving family members and friends. Then I think about all the kids who come to The Woodlands, and just how happy that they are alive everyday. It is such a change of pace and seeing it from both sides really allows me to see just how selfish some people are. It is sickening. People should feel blessed with the challenges and blessings that they receive.
So as I continue to ramble on about thoughts that have been playing in my mind all weekend, I would just like to say how excited I am that I get to spend a weekend at home with the love of my life. I am so blessed to have such an amazing person in my life. I am so excited about what our future has to bring and the more and more I think about it the bigger my goosebumps grow.
Until I have another free minute,
