Take it from me cuz I found
If you leave it then somebody else is bound
To find that treasure, that moment of pleasure
When yours, it could have been
Some people never find it
Some... only pretend, but me:
I just want to live happily ever after every now and then.
What does happily ever after mean for us? Is it writing a book so amazing that it gets turned into a movie and we never have to work again? Is it finding an agent? Finishing your manuscript after years of toil?
All of the these things take time. For most of us, the first will never be obtainable. So perhaps our happily ever after needs to be measured by something other publishing industry standards. I had one such moment today.
My husband came home from work and got out a giant horse floor puzzle. As my four and five year old daughters put away their toys and gathered around their father, I couldn't help but think that little moments like that are what it's all about. I wouldn't be taking pictures and putting it in my scrapbook, but it was still a moment I want to remember. When the world stood still except for my family just being together.
So on this Thankful for Thursday post, we want to know -- have you found your own happily ever after yet - even if it's only every now and then?
