MORNINGS IN SPRING.
So I think except for the pollen, it's a great, big wide open world. That I can't handle any more joy. That even though I've lost people(and one sweet, special doggie!) very dear to me in the past few years, I wake up on Spring mornings, knowing life is here. For us, the living. That I lose patience with those who refuse to "seize the day". That I like this tapping of my fingers against the keys. That I'd prefer to have a Mac to type this, but right now, I'm just writing. Saying a tiny bit of what's traveling through my head:
My sis, Tina is working on a great big wonderful project: helping to change Florida's ridiculous coda which insists that LGBT folks can "foster", but not adopt children. A quote from my beautiful (inside and out) sis:
"If they can provide 'safe haven' as a foster-parent, they should be able to adopt. I want to change this law; get an amendment, whatever it takes...."
God Bless You, kid! You rock, woman!
My honey, Hansoo turns 37 soon(ahhh, 37--I was once so young!) and I love how his hair has just a tiny, few strands of gray. How distinguished(yes, I know that is a cliche' way to describe it)he looks. That he makes the best mashed potatoes I've ever eaten(with fresh garlic, whole cream, etc...).That I love Chapchae(sometimes spelled Japjae--Korean noodles with vegetables--yum!) and Hamool Panjun(delicious "pancake" of green onion, veggies, and sometimes seafood). That I love learning to cook Korean food. That I hope I can be the best partner to him. That my life is more extraordinary than I could have imagined, years ago. Or maybe even weeks ago.That I'm so fortunate that my parents are alive, and that I am emotionally very close with them, even if geographical distance prevents me from getting to see my Daddy as often as I'd like. That I have a lovely, smart niece, who is working hard in her field of choice--a life in healing others....
What do you feel good about in your own life? What keeps you feeling life is worth living?
Have a peaceful, peace-filled Tuesday...
