A Dream Come True

Do you ever just wake up and think your life must be a dream??

Today is one of those days! I’ve fallen short a million times! Ok, let’s be truthful with that number… a gazillion! I mostly just run out of time! I wanted to make a meal or two for my dear Pat, but somehow, I am not sure where the time went (though I’ve been working a ton and it’s 5:30 on the day I’m leaving for New York and I still am not completely packed – there was stuff in the dryer when I went to bed), I wish I was like so many other people, like my dear Cathy who makes, cans, even makes due when there is no water (and I didn’t hear her complain).

I woke up today thinking “wow, this is how Cinderella must have felt when she got the glass slipper, the carriage, the dress, and the prince”. Overwhelmed with gratitude!

I’m going to New York PEOPLE! It really is a dream come true. We are going to see two different musicals, Once and Wicked. We will do a tour or two. I hope to walk in Central Park, I wish I was running but my foot would totally give out. And not to mention what we are doing, I am spending the weekend with people I love, and people who love me! Isn’t it wonderful to have people who love us?! Isn’t that a dream come true in itself??

I was walking around my clean house this morning (it’s clean because we cleaned it last night) and just thinking about how amazing my life is. Maybe my house isn’t what YOU would call fabulous, but I think its perfect for us. I have a pile of stuff of things I don’t even need! WOW! My house may not be perfectly perfect, but it’s perfect for us! God knew exactly what He was doing when He blessed me with this house. It’s a house filled with love and laughter, and sometimes tears, but it’s perfect for us.

I feel so undeserving sometimes, and I am, but I am thankful for a God who loves me, friends who give me grace, and the millions of ways He has provided for me!

My life might not be a dream come true to you… but it’s a life I am thankful to live!

I too often think that my life is a dream come true...perfect for me...not what I planned...or even thought I wanted...but perfect for me right at this moment.
