The Luckiest

I am, I am the luckiest. 

I am surrounded by people who laugh and love, who pick you up when you're down. People who want to see you and know you are well. People who only want you to be happy and who only want the best for you. People who work hard for you and make you want to work hard. I have a wonderful, loving and supportive family. I have fun, enthusiastic, caring, and genuine friends. And, to top it all off, I have an incredible, generous, and hilarious husband who spent the weekend painting our dining room and putting up new blinds while I was out of town visiting friends and family. How did I get to be so very blessed?

Ben Folds Five gets everything right in their song...

I don't get many things right the first time
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns
The stumbles and falls brought me here

And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face?
Now I see it everyday
And I know that I am
I am, I am the luckiest

What if I'd been born fifty years before you
In a house on the street where you live?
Maybe I'd be outside as you passed on your bike
Would I know?

And in a wide sea of eyes
I see one pair that I recognize
And I know that I am
I am, I am the luckiest

I love you more than I have
Ever found a way to say to you

Next door, there's an old man who lived to his 90's
And one day, passed away in his sleep
And his wife, she stayed for a couple of days
And passed away

I'm sorry, I know that's a strange way
To tell you that I know we belong
That I know that I am
I am, I am the luckiest

And I am counting my blessings...
