Monday, November 24, 2008 (I think, and am too lazy/comfortable to check if the date is correct!)
Today is just one of those days where the tears come easily. I’m not really sure why, but I’m sure all the stuff with the house, combined with dreary weather, doesn’t hurt. All I know is that this morning I put on my favorite Christmas CD–Celine Dion, These Are Special Times– (yes, I couldn’t wait until after Thanksgiving!!), curled up on the couch with a book I’ve been reading (The Things We Do For Love, by Kristin Hannah), with my baby Charlie asleep next to me, and the next thing I know, the tears have started. But I wasn’t extremely sad. It was one of those crys that you just NEED. The ones that when you are done, you just feel so grateful that you have so much in life. I feel so incredibly happy to have what I do–family, love, friends, a new home, a good job, financial security–things that many people can only dream of. So, I hope that in the next few very hectic weeks I’ll be able to recall this feeling whenever I start to feel overwhelmed. I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving!
