Nobody's perfect. We all make mistakes. We're all learning something. The howling beasts in the night usually turn out to be wounded animals in the daylight (unless it's Halloween, in which case that was a howling beast). Everyone is feeling hurt and scared. Once I figured that out, everything else seemed so much easier to deal with. That's also when I found the fun in simple everyday situations. Sorry for being so vague and random, but I'm just in awe right now.
Seriously, how blessed am I? I own a beautiful home. I have a family (and yes, friends are family too) that loves and supports me. I am young and healthy. I'm doing what I absolutely LOVE to do and I am good at it. The whole world is open to me with endless possibilities.
I am grateful. Life is good.
