Grateful

Today is the kind of day that makes me fall in love with San Antonio all over again.  The weather is gorgeous, we’re in the middle of Fiesta, and I just ate the most delicious snow cone in the world.  Cheesecake flavored.

I told my mom this morning that I can’t remember a happier time in my life.  Easy enough to say when everything is going right, right?  Well, things aren’t perfect.  My business could use more money (always), I need to pay down the debt I acquired in my divorce, I’d love to have my own car and a place of our own for my son and myself.  It will all happen someday.

But in my case, the good outweighs the bad by a million or more.  I have parents more than willing to take us in for a while until we are back on our feet again, the business (while struggling here and there) is having it’s most successful year so far, and I am just so completely content.

I firmly believe that life is so much more than what happens to us.  Those things are out of our control. It’s our ability to find light in the hard times and keep faith in the darkness that sets us apart and allows us to find true peace.  And I’m getting there…
