my lucky charmsFriday, August 14, 2009
Our Jewish treasure, mezuzah...
A friend once asked me,
“Do you feel like you live a charmed life?”
I chuckled and hysterically laughed,
“Me? My life’s super chaotic!”
“There’s always drama and tragedy every single day!
Hhmm.. It’s been 25 years since I first arrived here in the U.S.A.!
Moved from Manila to San Francisco to Oakland to Los Angeles to San Diego and then to NJ!
My family got stronger…
I’m not saying I’m all smiley-faces every single hour,
But I do see the light at the end of the tunnel…
Last night, I asked my husband, “Are we going to be OK?”
“What do you mean, OK?”
“Honey, after over 8 months of being home with you every single day,
Seeing each other 24/7 and not one time being mad at each other,
Our children are in good health and seem happy,
Still have a beautiful home,
A happy family,
A lovely marriage.
What more can we ask for?”
I guess I do have my lucky charm!
“The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.” – Charles R. Swindoll
As Deborah Larson King summarized it: “Life is choices and attitude”.
