A Charmed Life?
A blogger friend wrote that I have a "charmed life." My eyebrows went up. I certainly don't think so.
On the other hand, Art thinks he's been awfully lucky. He had an idyllic childhood growing up in a small town where he was much loved by everybody although he does say he had dishwater hands from working at the family restaurant.
My life wasn't so perfect, but I prefer not to think about the unhappiness and try to focus on the positive. Also it's good to keep some things to myself. My son keeps warning me not to expose so much on the Internet.
Whatever the case, my life improved 100% when I met Art. It's true. I'll give the man that much credit. He helped me grow, understand and forgive.
I am grateful for what I have. I keep remembering the quote that's been attributed to Gandhi but nobody seems to know who said it for sure.
"I was sad because I had no shoes. Then I saw a man who had no feet."
