We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Sometimes There Is Only Beauty

I truly love my 'station' in life and don't feel the need to ask for more.  I have never really dreamed of winning the lottery because I feel I have already won.  My marriage is pretty solid and I can not fanthom being with another man because he is not replacable so; I won the marriage lottery.  I have the home I basically wanted simple, large enough to grow a family and worthy to pass on to our children; I won the housing lottery.  I had the career I dreamed of because I was able to support myself before marriage, grow my own integrity, travel overseas, job security, training, healthcare, and education -- I won the lottery there.  I can not imagine a more fulfilling life because I love where I am at, with those I love, in the place I worked for since graduating high school. 

The most important aspect of my life now is being wife and mother.  I enjoy all that entails even when I get pissed off over things not going my way.  I must say Thank You a millions times a day and do not feel its enough to repay all I have been given.  In the evenings, I just look around to see.................

Girly I totally agree with you, I won the big pot lottery too with my honeyman! He is my life!!

When we first married. I told honeyman I want 6 boys, He said I will do my best LOL... well it didn't go as we planned, but in hind sight I can honestly say someone bigger than us knew what he was doing. Would take a book to explain that one. Things work out like they are suppose to I think.

We have way more than I ever would have dreamed of in my life, but material isn't where its at. Health, Love, that is where its at!
Having someone to cuddle in at night with every single night, knowing that someone is there ALWAYS, that they love you 100% and you love them 100%. Yep girly your so right...

Health, Love, whether its just you and your partner or you and your partner and kidlets :O).. that is so where its at!

Hey Mal -- yep true beauty -- anywhere we choose to look for it, it can be found. I am convinced of that. And recognizing it when we see it is the best blessing of all! Glad you looked for it, found it, recognized it, and cherish it. Wonderful!
