Peace Like A River

We are taking Zuzu and Viola to Disneyland today. Last night, Zuzu went to bed talking about hugging Sleeping Beauty. Viola drank eight full ounces before falling asleep. It should be a good day. This is a post from January of last year. I was happy then. I am happier now.

I could clean out all the closets in my house or I could write just a little here in outerspace. Organization of the closets seems to be the best choice; I opened one last night and a lawn chair fell onto my head. So…there is some work to be done there. On the other hand, writing here has it’s charms. I don’t think anyone really reads this, so no risk. AND I get to sit while typing…comfort while pretending at productivity.

Closets lose. Meggi wins.

It is now 2011 and the life I am living is beyond what a scoundrel like me should hope for, let alone deserve. I am possessed of a husband who loves me and a daughter that dances. The walls of my house are standing and the roof is new. Last night Riley came home from his promising new job and the table was set, the potatoes perfectly baked and I felt a grandness in our small lives. This isn’t luck. Me, 25 and in love with everything around me. Luck is not that creative. This is blessing, protection, modesty, love, God, truth and faith. I know that my goodly parents and my God raised me for this life, those baked potatoes, this moment. I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father and I KNOW IT. There is light in that knowledge and it will be bright in the darkness that visits me. The potatos will sometimes burn, not all nights will be set tables and love. It is alright. I know that I am being waited for in the home of my Heavenly Father. It could have been so different. There could have been so much less.

I am grateful. I am happy. I am delivered.
