I’m so easy to please! I mean that in a good way. I had a favorite lunch today, still trying to eat properly. We had the Keto Egg Casserole for breakfast. For lunch, I had a glorious lettuce chunk salad with cottage cheese, topped with a handful of frozen red cherries. It made me happy. Weird, huh?
I remember when my kids were little. Becky was the youngest. Her brothers teased her as brothers do. Frank called her a Nerdess, since she was a girl. His brother Nick was a Nerd. It was all in good fun, but I laugh as I recall it. They really did fiercely love each other. I believe most children from single-parent families do. I wish they were still close. When we have a group text going, once in a while they make a comment that brings back memories we all have. We were a wonderful family. Still are!
So as I ate my favorite lunch from my favorite bowl, I was grateful our life is so simple. We have payments for cars and mortgage; most people our ages have everything paid off. We were late to the game of Life, so we’ve only been in the game since 1998. It’s ok. We don’t need millions in retirements. The Babe and I are not planning world travel. We’re very content to stay home, sit on the deck or patio and visit, read, enjoy the wildlife of the wetlands behind us. There is so much to observe, enjoy, and be grateful for. Some days you have to search hard for it. Others, it’s easier to see.
The Babe just looks at me sometimes and shakes his head. I just tell him he’s my favorite. And he is. Not sure why, but I’m having some sort of flash-back moments of different things I’ve seen over my years with the Babe. I love remembering his teasing ways, the way the ladies at the Post, Church, his work career, he is such a charmer. Makes them all laugh and give them hugs when times are tough. I’ll gladly share him. The hugs are healing. I’m so lucky.
Well, while eating lunch, I had a filling/tooth crack. Oops! Can’t get into the dentist until Monday. Hope it will not hurt. It most likely needs a crown. Fit for a queen, eh? Have a beautiful day. Let’s see each other tomorrow.
