Hi there...late night...full day. Lots of different emotions today...
We started our day at the Celebration of Life for my friend Tina's husband Glenn. Glenn's friends, family, co-workers all dressed in Glenn's favorite sports team jerseys, gathered at the Southwest Airlines Hanger at Hobby Airport where he worked for over 25 years. It was a touching, warm celebration of a life well-lived. I was proud to be there...to see what truly felt like a celebration of his life...the things, music and people he loved!
Afterwards, Mom and I headed back home. Donna and I took a particularly chilly 1.50 mile walk before all of us headed to dinner and a movie.
I did NOT have a great food day...instead I splurged a bit...but...back in the groove tomorrow!
You know...I just spend too much energy worrying about doing everything exactly right...it is energy that I could use elsewhere.
I, despite the sadness of seeing my friends experience such loss...am grateful for this day. Grateful for the chance to live one more imperfect day...grateful that I spent that day with people I love. Grateful for the chance to tell my friend that I love her and support her...grateful that I got to spend time with my Mom...with Donna...have a wet, cold leaf battle with Emily and a friend...grateful for a blustery winter day...grateful that I still managed to squeeze in a bit of exercise...and even grateful for my imperfect food choices.
All in all...this day made me grateful for life and ALL of its (and my) imperfections!
Have a wonderfully imperfect Sunday!
