Today was one of those days, one of those days where I realize how precious life is. One of those days where I remember to be thankful for my health, my kids, my life, my friends and even my job. If you follow me on Twitter, you know I have had a rough couple of weeks. I have been on an emotional roller coaster ride. Today, I decided to get off the ride. I can only control so much. I can control my emotions. I can make a change if I so desire. I feel as though I started to take on a victim mentality. That is so not me. I think I am back. I am back as a friend, as a mom, and as a co-worker.
Today I attended a funeral of a young mother who left behind a husband, two sons ages 9 and 6, and a 3 year old daughter. I did not know her well in person but I followed her blog. I saw her ups and her downs as she battled cancer. She lived life to the fullest until the end. A good reminder to me. A reminder to love, laugh and most importantly live. I must say, tonight I am tired. Today was a long and draining day. I am tired but not wrecked. I feel happy to be alive, happy to be who I am. Ready to face another day and have some fun in the process.
