Gratitude

I am feeling so much gratitude in my heart right now regarding where I am in life right now.  I have been through some trials and tribulations, but I am at  really good place right now. I get to be with the love of my life who supports me, inspires me, balances me out, and watches the kids so I can get my MSW. Oh, and he can cook and blow glass, too. That is pretty freakin’ bad ass!

I’m so happy with school.  Not only am I interested in what we are learning about, but my cohort is filled with some great women. Today it was one of my girl’s, “Murry”‘, birthday. My other two friends, “MP” and “CB” and I went to Starbucks and bought Murry some cakepops (and ourselves some coffee).  We then convinced our class and professor to sing to Murry Happy Birthday when roll was called without Murry’s knowledge.  Murry’s face was bright red; It was hilarious!

I also spent awhile talking to another lady in my cohort who interns at Hospice and will be interning with me in August at the hospice facility as well.  She was telling me some beautiful stories about her experiences with hospice and how some of her clients just need her to hold their hands as they leave the world and just for someone to sit next to them as they pass. What an amazing (and tough!) experience that will be for me next year; I am looking forward to it.

During our last class tonight, we learned about Bipolar Disorder. And watched this documentary….

Jack’s dad sent the kids easter baskets. So sweet. Here is Jackson with his bunny which was in the package. Freaking adorable….

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
