Your Life is Awesome!
I just found this blog called 1000 Awesome Things and I think I love it. Reading the top 1000 awesome things made me think, laugh, maybe even cry a little. But mostly, it just reminded me that life is pretty awesome most of the time. And I don't mean that in the "totally rad and really awesome" overly stated kind of way. I mean that life inspires awe in me regularly. I'm in awe at how Ichiro can hit a tiny ball into the stands. I'm in awe of the generosity of a birth mother giving her child up for adoption so my friend can have the kids she desperately wants, but can't have on her own. I'm in awe of the sunrise that I saw this morning. I'm in awe of the love that I can feel for my husband that I didn't even know I had in me and has grown immensely since we married almost five years ago. I'm in awe of how smart the crazy raccoons in the city are.
