There have been times when I was in shape and my hair looked good, that I would be driving on a beautiful sunny days with the tunes blasting and I would have that feeling which can only be described as WOW…LIFE IS GOOD…I’M IN LOVE WITH LIFE….YOU CAN’T GET TO ME TODAY SO DON’T EVEN TRY…. As I got older and older with big girl problems, those feelings went away; in fact I cannot even remember when it happened the last time. But, I was thinking tonight while going thru some photos for scrapbooking…this is so fun…I look forward to it…I can’t wait to get my work done so I can sit down and do it….it is like that whole wind through my hair thing from years past…only different.
Another giddy feeling I used to have is when I went to the library…I would load up 3 or 4 books…not because I would read that many before they were due but because in my effort to always be prepared, I would get that many books so at least 2 or 3 I might like. Then I would head home, knowing I had to play mother, wife, cook or maid and wanted to hurry thru everything so I could sit down and lose myself in a book. I still love to read and do so every day but I don’t have that giddy feeling that I can’t wait to go home and get into a book.
I love to vacation and/or camp…I love the weeks building up to the trip…except for the day just before we leave. I love the prep, the trips to Walmart for possible missed items and I love being better prepared financially now because I know that if I forget something, I can stop and buy it… that takes a lot of pressure off of the preparation…
I look forward to scrapbooking…see paragraph 1…Debbie and Karen and I decided a while back that we would rotate each others houses each month to scrapbook..but have found a real home at Debs which feels loving, safe and comfortable so we haven’t gone anywhere else. Safe and comfortable and loved are good.
Until next time…..
I know exactly what you mean and boy don’t we treasure those moments when that feeling strikes? Early spring sunny weather does it for me and it’s here today so I’m giddy too.
I love to go out with my camera and search thorugh the woods for the beautiy hidden behnd a tree or a stream that comes out of nowhere. That’s what makes me giddy.
