Today was a beautiful, gorgeous day in the d.c. area. The air was warm, the sky was blue, and the sunbeams beat down everything in their path.
Highly unusual for the middle of January, but hey, I'll take it.
The weather made me downright giddy today. Driving to work with my windows down and Israel Kamakawiwo'ole crooning from the stereo, I had a goofy grin affixed to my face for the better part of the day. Nothing could get me down.
Today, I realized that I was utterly, joyously happy for no good reason at all...and I also realized that it's been a long time since I'd felt that way. Hubby is doing great. In fact, this week was the first week since the transplant that he didn't need to receive any blood products whatsoever. We have so much to be thankful for right now--and we're both learning to let go of the apprehension and anger to make room for joy.
And then, to cap off my day, I came home and found the best blonde joke ever. Before anyone gets up in arms, let me say that I harbor no ill will against the fair-haired; in fact, I bleached my own out during the transplant because I figured that I'd never been blonde before and now was as good a time as any. It took me a while to get the joke, but when I did...let's just say that it's the first thing that made me genuinely laugh out loud from the internet in a while.
Here's hoping that the happiness and laughter spread...
What are the little things that make you giddy with joy?
