This Could Really be a Good Life

When you’re happy like a fool 
Let it take you over 
When everything is out 
You gotta take it in 

Oh this has gotta be the good life 
This has gotta be the good life 
This could really be a good life, good life 

Say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight 
Like this city is on fire tonight 
This could really be a good life 
A good, good life

My birthday was amazing on so many levels.  Full of birthday wishes on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, even Snapchat.  A friend brought me a small chocolate cake and tons of fresh fruit.

My gorgeous girls wished me a Happy Birthday
My Gorgeous Girls

and gave me hope that we can repair our relationship.

I looked back at past birthdays that were less than stellar, and I realized this birthday was so much better than any of them, so much better than I could have imagined.  I went for a walk and I realized I have a really good life.  A life I couldn’t see being possible last Fall.

The Fourth of July will be spent in Hannibal at National Tom Sawyer Days with The Man Who Colors and the rest of the weekend will be spent with his family.  But for tonight, I am thankful.  Thankful for this life I have, for being given this life, for the friends I have online, the friends I have in real life, the love of an amazing man, hope for the future.

This could really be a good life.
