When the Stars Allign...
...Friday night rituals of dinner at Applebees provide comfort
...trading in my Civic for an SUV pays off because...
...we travel safely from Milwaukee to LaCrosse through a blizzard, without incident
...I dine with my mom pleastantly and peacefully
...I go out for a drink with two of my closest friends from HS that I don't see often and catch up
...I catch up with my cousin while amusing her baby
...I am constantly reminded that I have married my soul mate
...I cozy up at home with a fire and watch my favorite shows (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Desperate Housewives)
...I go to sleep early snuggled up with my man
...I wake up on a Monday morning feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day
...an early Monday morning conference call yeilds an order equal to 1/3 of my total monthly sales goal
...I stop talking and start doing, making plans for lunch tomorrow with Maria
...my bosses recognize the extraordinary work I've done for their small business
Just musing on all of the wonderful things that are going on in and around my life right now. A lot of it may seem trivial, but I'm really relishing in the everyday blessings I've been given.
