My cup overflows!
And I'm blessed enough to have dinner with Amanda and Katie tonight and see the Holiday 'Cirque de Soleil' tonight.
As the Gma in Hope Floats says 'my cup overflows'.
This morning while getting ready... I was reflecting on my childhood, telling stories on Friday night reminded me of what a crazy and awesome childhood I had. Spending summers on a boat, surrounded by people who loved and cared about me, it was AMAZING! Thinking back about how they even taught me how to cook over a campfire! But also how funny it is that I don't camp unless there's shelter, none of that tent stuff for me! I was even laughing about how I was never really sheltered from crazy bad stuff, so I learned how to deal with it... One time there was some guy on the loose, Olten Coleman if I remember correctly, and there was a man hunt out for him, and he was in the vicinity of our marina... Helicopters, police... from an early age, I always learned to be aware of my surroundings. A lesson I'm thankful for to this day. Doesn't it sound crazy though that as a pretty young kid I was exposed to that, and am thankful for it! LOL. I'm a weirdo!
I have seen and done some amazing things in my lifetime. Surrounded by people who love me and whisper 'you can do it, I love you' into my heart... then... and now. I'm so thankful!
