It's it funny how things turn out. I am amazed at how my life is progressing. It is so different from what I envisioned 15 years ago, 10 years ago even. Just tonight I made a batch of refrigerator pickles for my nephew's birthday. Why pickles, you may ask? Well, because he asked me to. I'm no longer the cool Auntie that I was when he was little. It's pretty cute, he still comes to me if he has an injury or wants more cookies, but he has pretty much outgrown me and now his Uncle is much more fun. So, when he sends me a message saying that my pickles are awesome and he was wondering if I would be making more anytime soon, you know darn well that I am going to use every last cucumber from the garden to make him some more!
Even hearing myself say that I am making pickles sounds a little nuts. It is far from the driven career woman I used to be. Now I live in the country, stay home with my son and take care of my family. I have a garden. I preserve things. I bake. I make pickles. My son asked me yesterday for a pig and we might just get one. My high heels were replaced by Georgia boots and I dress more for practicality than fashion....who is this woman? Whoever she is, I like her. My life is hard and messy with a whole lot of blessing mixed in. I wouldn't change it for anything, so tonight I'm making pickles!
Here's to life and everything that goes with it! May you be blessed with pickles, or whatever suits your fancy!
