Sometimes we forget.

yesterday I had the privilege of going with my sister and helping her shoot a beautiful wedding at Diamond Woods
on top of that I got to catch up with a few old friends that were in the wedding.   While there, I was caught off guard when one of them looked at me and said "I wish I had your life!"  I think I looked at her a little strange cause she started to explain.  She started talking about my work and how I always have good days, and spending time at the pool, hiking, and always going to do fun things.  I said thank you and kinda started to defend that not everyday is great, and we all have your speed bumps in life.  But then later thinking about it all, made me really look at my life (and not just my FB life) ;) and honestly I forget how lucky I TRULY am!!  I do have a fabulous job, and so lucky I get to make my own hours.  I work just enough to enjoy and see the faces of the wonderful girls I work with, catch up with my great clients, and get a little sanity back from being home with the kids all week.  My kids are wonderful, and we have so much fun together!  Yes we are spoiled with being able to take advantage of the pool any day of the week, but that just goes with living where we do, and another thing that goes with that is the surroundings and great adventures we get to take advantage of when ever we want!  Hiking, fishing, playing in the snow, all the festivals, floating the river, and all of the above! 
 Yet another reason I love where we live so so much! 
 I'm blessed to have an amazing husband, that helps with what ever I need, and enjoys spending time with his family even when it's not something he would really want to be doing.  We have so much fun together and make each other laugh every day. 
So yes after stopping and looking at things and reflecting on my daily life,
I will agree "I would want my life also!" ;)
I won't say it's perfect, cause it's far from that, but I wouldn't change a thing.  We have our speed bumps and even mountains we have to over come some days, but we take each one and learn from it, and enjoy the out come. 
 So I ask you to just take a couple minutes and reflect on what if SO WONDERFUL about your life.  I think it's way to easy to get caught up in everyday life, and forget about what we really have.
