This

Do you ever have days when you think about how someday you're going to look back and wonder that this was really how you lived, either for the good or the bad?
Sometimes we are astounded by our own lives, both by the darkness and the light.

The other day, I had my weekday off work, and I found myself thinking, "Surely someday I'm going to look back on this with a smile."

"This" being reading in the park for 3 hours.
"This" being walking and jogging Lake Shore Path for a leisurely hour midday.
"This" being receiving a surprise box of new books in the mail from a friend.
"This" being staying out at a coffee shop with husband until 10:00pm on a Monday.

"This" happened to me all in one day this week.
Read: This is not my everyday, duh.
Tomorrow, I'll be in the office 9-5 and stuck in traffic.
But I do like to think on "this."

It's important to remember your "this"; it makes up a part of your story.

awww. I went to the church of wrigleyville (now imago dei?) and went to that coffee shop down the street all the time. In fact, in the early years they provided coffee and pastries every sunday morning to the church for free. Despite the owner not being a Christian - he just liked our pastor.
