I have loved the 30's - more than any other decade in my life .
Like a friend of mine says about the 30's "Life is changing a lot but its good "
A lot of the goodness of this decade has come with becoming more resilient and being open to life and the road it takes me down
Now I know for sure that not getting what I want in life does not mean not loving what I get
When I was expecting R - when people would ask if I wanted a boy or a girl - I would always say - all I want is normal
Well you see how that turned out !
A child who reads before he talks
Makes little crosswords but does not get hide and seek
Carries vowels instead of a blankie
Worships numbers before he likes stuffed animals
And so on.
It seems to me that happiness is a choice.
A choice to spend mourning the life we were meant to have.
To celebrate the one that we do have.
Another friend says "the bend in the road is only the end of the road if you refuse to take the turn"
So what if I did not get a typical child.
I did get the best one.
If there one thing I know, its that the unexpected oddest out of place things can be the most beautiful ones
Like Tablelamps hung from trees.
And Utterly Marvelous
