If I’m dreaming, don’t wake me!
My life has been interesting. For the majority of my life, I’ve gotten by and made do. You know what I mean. I’ve never had any money to speak of. I’ve never expected to have any. I’ve never been destitute, but my life has had its challenges. There were times when I wasn’t sure if I’d make the rent payment and there were times when I couldn’t. There was a time when a bowl of beans or Ramen noodles was all there was to eat and I was grateful to have that. I’ve been homeless and had no idea where my next meal was coming from.
I was taught from a young age that if I worked hard and kept my nose to the grindstone that I would reap the rewards for my efforts. It took me a long time to realize that life is not always fair. No matter how hard you work.
But I’ve never lost that hard-working mentality.
The last several years have seemed surreal. I was terrified of making the move from Oregon to Texas. I was over 50 and I was going to Quit My job and move across the country to an uncertain future and start over. Madness!
It was the best decision of my life.
I now have a job that I love. I’m employed by the World’s Best Boss and I have a few wonderful friends that have my back no matter what the situation. I have family close by that I love and they love me.
Then there are the material blessings!
I make a good wage. I own a nice car and live in a nice house. I have the money to buy almost anything I want. My cupboards are full and so is my closet.
I will soon close on a house that I am buying. Me. Just me, buying this house. I can’t hardly believe it. (by the way, the financing went through!)
I’m incredibly grateful!! I have been truly blessed! If I’m dreaming, don’t wake me!
