A Thankful Friday

You know when you have been worrying about something and then that worry is finally lifted how you realize how feeling good really does feel? That feeling of just not having a weight on your chest? A weight you had learned to live with. Now it is like you can take a full breath. Have a good night's sleep. 
Well I am there. I can take a full breath and slept like a baby last night. I had had some tests done and yesterday I got good news. I was literally shaking waiting for the doctor. Stress does a number on one's body. I woke for the first time in weeks feeling rested. Amazing. That is how I feel.

Dinner just tasted so good. BLTs, well turkey ones, tasted so good. The laughter at the table sounded so lovely, the girls arguing didn't phase me a bit. I could appreciate it as the normal hum of life.

Today I am going to take my girlies shopping for Halloween costumes. So fun! I love how excited they are even as teens to get a costume and dress up for the parties they are attending. So this will be a good season of fun and I will savor every good, bad, happy, grumpy, quiet and loud day ahead. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Thank you all for stopping by and always brightening my day with such kind words. I know you are all busy and I appreciate the moments you take to leave me such nice comments. I know all bloggers feel that way.
