either way

my, my, my.

i have a friend who tells me that lessons will be repeated until they are learned.

i feel like i was given a cheat sheet recently:


11 years ago i was asked how much i determine my worth by what i do.

uhhhh…99.9%?  i do what i like, i like what i do…is there a difference?

it’s still true…i’m living my dream, i find my work soul deeply satisfying, i get great joy out of adding candles and quilt tops to corners of my house, i like the order of typing the bulletin each week, i like arranging snacks in pretty ways, i will play with my kids when they ask, i add christmas lights to rooms year round, but i’m finally embracing the notion that

i simply am.

just like i tell my preschoolers:

everyone was a baby once. everyone was fresh. everyone was born and just was.

and no matter how things go, no matter which way, no matter how well,

either way we are right.

I’ve learned from experience that the greater part of our
happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.
Martha Washington
