In light of the recent shooting tragedy in Colorado I got to thinking about the crazy mad rush that is my life. Between writing and editing, blog posting, parenting, cooking, cleaning and maintaining social obligations sometimes I think I'm trying too hard to "have it all." But then I thought, what does the phrase "trying to have it all" mean anyway? I have all of the above things to do. They are segments of my life and some are way more important than others. The key for me is realizing that often times those little moments in between are the ones that make life worth living. * Mila sharing her goldfish with Gorbie * Matt and I enjoying a dinner out, alone * Sharing a cup of tea with a friend * Long and wonderful conversations with my parents * A warm bed and a good book * "Having it all" means a rich and fulfilling life that has nothing to do with material possessions and monetary gain. And for this, everyday I am grateful.
