Lucky

I've been doing a lot a whining lately.  That dumb house in York, PA won't sell.  The vet recently found a mass on the lung of Trixie, our seventeen year old Jack Russell Terrier, and she coughs like a 90 year old chain smoker. We've been on some pins and needles around here, to say the least.

But the truth is, I'm really lucky.  Way, WAY more lucky than I deserve.  I have Alan, my husband, who holds my hand, particularly in times like this.  He assures me that everything is going to be OK.  I believe him.

That's why I love this song so much, and why I play it over and over and over on days like this.  It's why I want to share it with you now.  The chorus is so pretty, so lovely, I can't stop listening to it.  This is my wish for you today, that you find someone that makes you feel as happy and as loved as this song suggests! Enjoy!!

Beautiful! And just what I needed -- going through a bit of a difficult time myself, so I do relate! Have a great weekend!

If you have anything like what the lyrics suggest then you are indeed lucky, Joan! My prayers are with Trixie and with you. My dog will soon be 12 and she already has numerous ailments. Sorry you haven't been able to sell your house in York. I know some people in York who are also trying to sell a house. It's called the Shady Dell. Have a fine weekend, dear friend Joan!

It is beautiful, I had not heard it before and it is perfectly for remembering the good things in life.

Love the song...I will be married for 36 years in May to my best friend.
I live in Baltimore and several houses in my neighborhood have finally sold in the last month...all had been listed in the fall so lets hope that's a good sign and your house will be next.

I understand more than you know.
recession is killing us.
I have an 'Alan" and my goodness I couldn't get through this without it. Because no matter what he has my back, my heart and my love and vice versa. I wish more understood this. it keeps me warm. :-)

I pray for your Trixie.

Sorry you've been struggling. Especially sad news about Trixie. Our Maisy doesn't know anything about masses, but she is hoping Trixie's about to get rid of that cough and feel better soon.

Thank you for your thoughtful wish . I do hope the best for the pooch, and nice that you have someone to hold your hand through it all. What a lovely blog. xo

Get this - - I am going to be staying in York, PA in 2 months for a week for vacation. If we plan on living there forever, I will buy that house.

Although, I doubt that will happen, but you will never know.

My wife tells me I'm a big time winner. In fact, she goes so far as to say, I'm nothing but a big cry baby! Can you believe that? :-)

It's good to be lucky - deserved or not - and to dwell on the good side of life. Couldn't listen to the music as I'm outside of the USA (in England) but feel sure I would have enjoyed it!
