There are so many things I'm thankful for in my life and for some reason I'm feeling an abundance of blessings, almost undeserving. Tom and I will be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary in just a few short weeks and though we've had some bumps along the road we are in a very solid place now and I can't even put into words how happy this makes me. Tonight when he came home we sat across from each other on the kitchen countertops indian style, sipping our glasses of wine, Wrigs laying beneath us and Chum by my side. We talked about the typical day to day stuff and then some other more eventful things and as I sat there talking and listening (and of course talking some more) I felt so at peace with my life, a sense of calm like nothing else in the world matters. I'm guessing this is what people experience when they visit the Taj Mahal or similar places of incredible profundity but tonight in my very own kitchen I experienced my own degree of personal serenity. And it didn't cost me a dime.
This is where I need to be.
