today is one of those days where I feel so lucky to be able to sit back and take in all that is my life. here I am, at my desk - in my cozy office feeling full.
full from the delicious mexican lunch that I was able to afford and eat and by eat, I mean scarf down in 2.2 seconds [and full from all the calories I just ingested but we won't talk about that].
full of love for my family - this time of year always brings days and nights filled with reflection of where I came from and who I am - and the people who have impacted me most.
full of pride and accomplishment for what I do. I may not be rich in dollars but I make a difference and I help people every day. I feel lucky and proud that I can say that.
full of admiration, respect and most of all love for my amazing husband and best friend. there are days where I have to pinch myself that we're actually married and living this fairy tale [living in a basement apartment might not be your version of a fairy tale, but for right now - it's mine]. I don't know what I did right in the first 26 years of my life that finally helped me realize what was in front of me for the past decade but I'm glad I did it. DJ is not perfect, and neither am I. we fight, we bicker, I cry, he gets annoyed. it's life. but, we live it with each other and for each other. he truly is my soul-mate and I am proud to be his wife.
full in my uterus [what, it's true? hah] - okay, that's not the nicest way to say it... how about full in my heart with love for this little baby that is growing inside of me. I don't know what sex the baby is, who it'll look like, what it's name is, how it will act - but I love it so much already. I talk to our baby everyday - love it, sing to it, feel it fluttering around and I can't even begin to put into words the emotions that run through me when I think of our sweet baby j. our dream come true.
so here I am. happy as a clam and full as can be.
life is good.
so today, I'll be an optimist - my glass will be half full and my heart full to the brim.
