My Cup Runneth Over!
Posted February 15, 2013on:
I am checking off my list of errands to get ready for the upcoming Cayman Islands trip… I knocked an eye exam off the list as I needed new contacts….
My seventeen year old needed an exam and went with me. It hit me as we were finishing up the paperwork that it would be the last time I would have to sign for him as he will be eighteen the next time around….I felt a little sentimental being at that office with Nicholas. It is the one next to Sam’s Club and the doctor recently changed, but this was where Nicholas received his first eye exam and his first contacts at age eleven…
That first time holds so much meaning to Nicholas as he was a football player and a great receiver and needed contacts to play. Despite concerns the doctor agreed to give him contacts and Nicholas was forever changed by that decision. It was at that age that he decided he wanted to become an eye doctor. Over the years he has refined it to wanting to become an eye surgeon. He has never changed it and is getting ready for his first college tour the first weekend in March.
Nicholas looking towards his upcoming senior year and colleges combined with my daughter getting ready to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree and waiting to hear from graduate schools,means my cup runneth over!
Dear Readers, what in your life gives you that feeling of “MY Cup Runneth Over? I keep feeling like I should pinch myself lately! It’s long over due as we had a long stretch of tough years…There is a lot of symbolism in my desire to go Para-sailing in the Caymans, as I feel like i am flying lately…Since I am never going to go sky diving this is the closest I will get to that! Please chime in and comment i would love to hear what in your world make your spirit soar and feel like abundance of joy!
Gratitude: I don’t need to repeat it here , so will just say the success of my children! I am grateful that my daughter had a homework assignment to ask a member of another generation about social changes in their lifetime and the amazing discussion that followed. I am grateful for a wonderful Valentine’s Day and the week long treats that my husband showered upon me that were not extravagant, but that all say, “I know you , see you and value you”
