It is absolutely gorgeous outside. The kind of day when you want to sit outside and bask in the sunshine with the breeze blowing through your hair. It's the kind of day that makes you reflect and re-appreciate the love of life. For me, it's one of those days when you forget all the things that are troubling you and focus on enjoying this one brief moment. Tomorrow may be filled with thunder and lightening, but today is perfect.
It's also a reminder for me that, like the weather, we can't always control what happens in our lives. We can try to look ahead and predict, but life is graded on one big curve, and you never know what the score will be from one day to the next. At least for today, I am living in the moment. Enjoying the sound of my childrens laughter, forgetting to check my email for awhile, turning off the phone, sitting outside watching the world go by, happy to be a part of it.
Forget all my thoughts of failure, the way I feel today validates me. No matter what my future holds, I know that days like today make the wait all worth while.
