Talking with my much better, definitely better looking, half today… (Shameless plug: Check out how beautiful she is by clicking here!). She once again brought my thoughts around, as she effortlessly and gracefully does, to being thankful. My list, is honestly, endless. Look at that… Another thing to be thankful about.
A dear friend of mine recently posted something speaking about happiness being a choice. A quote by Ralph Marston – “Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will make you happy until you choose to be happy. No person will make you happy unless you decide to be happy. Your happiness will not come to you. It can only come from you.” (Thanks Penny for sharing that!).
Somewhere along my path the last few years I lost sight of this simple truth. I guess this is where some would say I had something to learn; a lesson to go through, or even in some cases, I’ll admit, I was the lesson for someone else.
Where I am today though, is thankful. I’ll just leave it at that.
Made it through those high school years with
All those girls I loved who broke my heart
All those back roads I drove ’round on
That church pew that I got found on
That college town where I first got my start
The ones that said there’s your chance, go take it
Took all of you for me to get this far
Jobs along the way that paid me
People who dug deep to raise me
Made me who I am, you know who you are
All the friends that are more like brothers
All the people I ain’t seen in too many years
All the faces in the bleachers
Never gave up on me teachers
Yeah this one’s for the ones who got me here
