As November amps up and we head at a dangerous clip towards the holiday season, I am taking a moment to count my blessings. Sure, when I sat down in front of my mighty laptop and writer’s block settled over me, I had no idea where this post would take me. For inspiration I scrolled through some older WFAMs and thankfully, I found writing that stands the test of time. Of course, the writer has evolved but the themes like love, self-acceptance and humor are the threads that remain consistent.
My boys are growing older and older and I don’t know what that means for the future. I don’t know how this blog will unfold as they set about making their way in the world.
What I know for sure is I am so grateful to have them in my life. I am grateful I have been here to watch them grow into fine, young men and I am grateful to have a husband that supports all of my writing endeavors.
It is quite possible I have reached the pinnacle of good fortune. Maybe this is where I stop trying so hard to be ‘more’ and simply savor the blessings already here.
