Yet another TAG - You're IT out of BlogWorld! Big thanks to SoCalled(TTC)Life and thisispersonal who both tagged me for the Happy-Hopeful Blog. I suspect this award is intended to be bestowed upon someone who is perhaps in need of a reason to focus on Happy and Hopeful thoughts. That would certainly be me.
I'm going to refrain from using the most obvious (if accurate) answers: my darling Professor, my adorable furbabies, my recently paid off car. Instead it's something much more momentary and fleeting. I get the most amazing sense of lightness and peace on crisp Fall days with weather like today. There is something awe inspiring about the quality of the light as the sun strikes the changing colors of the leaves on the trees against the backdrop of dark storm clouds on the horizon. The sight never fails to stop me in my tracks and make me think "I am alive and THIS is beautiful".
I have to admit, moments of happiness are somewhat easier to come by than moments of hopefulness. Oddly enough, that is exactly what is giving me hope right now. Hope, and dare I say confidence, that however our IF journey plays out, the Professor and I will still have an abundance of reasons to be happy. I don't really have much hope at the moment that we will be able to successfully bring our own offspring into our lives. But I have every hope that we will be able to live happily either way.
I'm tagging the following players for Team #Hope:
