But here I am, more than a month later, and I have no thoughts. No issues plaguing my mind. Nothing. Nada.
Recently someone asked my sister how I was doing. Her response, while truthful, made me think. She said " I don't know, I never hear from her now that she's happy."
While on one hand it made me realize I need to call my sister more.
On another hand... she's right.
For the first time I can remember I have no problems, no issues, no unsettling feelings.
I have peace and joy and pure happiness.
No, life is not perfect. We still have car troubles, a tight budget and even unruly young men who can't pick up their dirty socks in the living room. But those things are just life.
I have a happy home that is full of love and laughter. I'm married to my best fried, and our boys all get along and are thriving.
I have only the Lord to thank for where I am right now, and only He knows what things will look like in the future. So for now, I will enjoy this time of happiness and peace
I wish you all a merry Christmas!
