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.
