OK-so. To be honest with you, I didn't think I had much to say. I hadn't planned on a year end blog and thought I would let the New Year ring in by itself. HOWEVER, we on the Biggest Winner Marathon Team 2013 were gently encouraged to update our blogs.
I woke up this morning with two sick dogs, a mouse in the house who at least is no longer in the pantry and one lone roach left from a Christmas gift that had been given a few weeks ago. Did I mention that the washing machine has chosen not to work this morning?
Between running up and down the stairs to the laundry room with armfuls of soiled linen and couch covers, strongly encouraging the mouse that he needs to take up residence somewhere else and pulling the kitchen apart one more time to make sure everything is clean so I can spray one more time for the roach issue, I find myself smiling that I am alive, healthy and well this new year to be doing all of this in ABUNDANCE!
Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary (1981) defines ABUNDANCE as 1: an ample quantity: profusion 2: affluence, wealth 3: relative degree of plentifulness .
Today, I am grateful to have an ample quantity of animals mainly 2 pups (have to include just temporarily the mouse and the roach). I am grateful for these dogs who are a constant source of delight and life and yes, MESS (where there is life there is mess).
I am grateful for a warm home in which to reside (the mouse likes it too-not for long). I am grateful for a pantry that is plentiful with good food-simple fare but healthy none the less. I am grateful to be starting another year healthier and stronger than I was at the beginning of 2012.
I am excited about the upcoming year of 2013 with all the potential and possibilities it already holds. I am learning to look at the past as if it were rear view mirror in a vehicle. I only want to briefly glance back to see if I am safe or if there is potential danger coming my way. I don' t want to glance back for too long because I will miss what is ahead and not see what is coming towards me.
This morning I realize just how wealthy a woman I am. Life, love and health means more to me than all the silver and gold, houses or land that I could ever own.
So, I am off to doctor the pups, call a repairman or better yet maybe a trip to Sears for a new washer and dryer, coax a mouse into a different residency (hopefully for his sake a warm one) AND prevent a potential roach situation. Segway-how can one lone baby roach reek such emotional havoc? As I finish this blog, I glanced at the TV and saw the promo for the upcoming marathon. To think of the possibility of this old girl crossing that finish line---
A VERY HAPPY, HEALTHY AND ABUDNATLY PROSPEROUS 2013 TO YOU AND YOURS
NAMASTE andABUNDANT, ABUNDANT BLESSINGS
