Happy Thoughts

I recently posted this on another blog I have under a different name, but I wanted to share it here as well.


Sometimes things just don’t go smoothly. But I don’t want to talk about that. Or think about it.

I want to think about guitar solos and nutcrackers.

Scenic walks and dark bars and cupcakes.

Making plans and sharing jokes and not making any sense to anyone but each other.

Falling asleep.
I want to think about long phone calls.

Understanding and listening.

Sharing fears and dreams.
I want to think about boat rides and stair repairs.

Long hours under blankets.

Encouragement and comforting and restoring broken pieces.

Waking up.
I want to think about how fortunate I am. How much wonder and amazement is in my life.

And even when something doesn’t fit and doesn’t work, that doesn’t change where things have been and where I am, and how thankful I am for those who are here with me.
