priceless moments

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I am blessed beyond what I deserve. I just got to spend a perfect week cruising the caribbean with an amazing family who, no matter how far I am away, is loving and supportive and hilarious. It didn't seem long enough, but I am so very very grateful for the time I did get to spend with them. I danced to single ladies with my sister Claire (she is 14 now, duh), zip lined with James (who is a lot braver than I am), laughed with Lisa (whose laugh can light a room), listened to my grandparents as they told the stories of their growth, and watched my parents who are more in love than ever. Life is good.

Yes, I may have gotten delayed and stranded in Atlanta by Delta, but that meant I could see Brett which was unexpected, surprising and perfect. We "luck" out a lot. What I mean to say is God's plan is working pretty great right now, with little or no help from me- that's for sure. My delayedness also meant I got to work a half-day of work on Monday by accident, giving me a trial run before heading back into 9-hour work days. This month is going to be crazy, but that's just the way I like it! I will not complain about being busy in an economy like this. I am simply blessed.
