You saved me today. Lately, my life has seemed out of control. Well, out of my control. My relationship with my husband had become a place of anger and frustration. The relationship with my family? Not much better. I got to work this morning and just sat in my car, crying. I was trying to decide whether or not to stay. Not leave and go home but to leave. Run away. Just go and not look back. \r
I was early by 30 minutes so I decided to go to Bobby and Steve's, right near my job. When I pulled in, I felt as if the walls were crashing down, I couldn't think or react. I went inside and decided that I would get a breakfast sandwich. There weren’t any without bacon so I asked if one could be made without meat.... No problem, he said. As I stood there waiting, I looked down and on the counter were 4 copies of your Pegasus Newsletter. The Pegasus, although mythical, has always been a symbol of hope, beauty and magic to me. So I picked up one of the copies, gathered my food and left for my office.\r
As I ate my sandwich, I took out your newsletter and started from the back...an odd habit of mine...lol.\r
What I found and read, literally made me cry. Happy tears!!! 10 Ways to be a better Wife...an excerpt from ""Who Moved My Cheese"" (a book I have given to many people...I had forgotten), The Lies we Believe, How to be Happy in Life...Putting things in Perspective....\r
I believe that all things happen for a reason....I believe that I was meant to be at Bobby and Steve's this morning to find your newsletter. I believe the universe was looking out for me, as always. I have read and re-read from cover to cover. \r
So, I didn't run away. Instead, I called my Husband and told him that I knew everything was going to be okay...I told him how grateful I was for his love and support. That he IS my best friend and how loving me is his choice and how lucky I was. \r
Thank you for reminding me that every day is a gift we are given, to start again every morning with a clean slate. It is a choice to be happy. I choose to be joyful, to never give up, be grateful for ALL of Life, to laugh and love, and to forgive. May God bless you. And thank you for the reminder of how precious our time is and not to waste one moment in regret.
