I am sitting here in the quiet of the morning, wondering how I got so lucky. I have so much in my life now, that it is hard to believe my life was once so different.

Though we all deserve to have love and joy in our lives, it doesn't just appear by itself. We have to be willing to work for it and to be open to it. Sometimes it doesn't come in the form we expect it to.

I was just thinking of the day ahead, how wonderful it is to have the luxury of time to clean my beautiful home, to make things nice for my loving husband and the kids.

Time is truly a luxury, and though I think I knew that before, I didn't fully appreciate it until I moved here. Even though we have been keeping extremely busy unpacking and settling in, we still have time to do things we love, like sharing coffee out on the patio before Rich goes to work, like taking bike rides after dinner, like reading together in the evenings, like just being together when we want, talking or not talking.

Life careens along at such a speed! I am very thankful to be able to see it slow down some here, to fully enjoy every day.
