Happy Day!

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” {Howard Thurman}

Yesterday was such a blessing because Samson is feeling much better -thanks to many kind thoughts and prayers- and my wonderful husband surprised me with these lovely flowers {pictured above} last night. This makes today even more special, because I truly feel loved. I woke up feeling happy, optomistic, excited...alive! Sitting here this morning, I keep looking around my office. Almost taking a mental photograph of a place where I spend nearly 50 hours of my week. I am so thrilled that I won't have to work for 2 1/2 weeks... but I still wonder if I will miss this desk, my co-workers or my lovely little teenage clients {heh!}.

But right now, in this moment, all I can think about is being free! Sure, I'll be recovering from surgery... but I can still sit outside and enjoy lunch on our rooftop deck, fall asleep in the middle of the day watching movies, and hopefully do a little shopping in Cary Town.

It's still hard for me to imagine that this is real. That in 3 days one of my organs will be taken out of my body and put into another. The whole concept is facinating... and I am so so so excited to be apart of this process. I feel so lucky that I have been given this opportunity, to give a person their life back. I just know that it will change me and inspire me and give my life more meaning.

So today is not just Friday. It's the last day to run my fingers through my hair before dreading them tomorrow morning, the last day waking up early, and basically the beginning of something so much bigger than I can understand right now.

I hope you find inspiration in today. If nothing else, the sunshine alone should be able to help with that! And never underestimate the power you have in this universe -- you can even change the world if you so desire.

I believe in you.


  1. have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Kara, I'm glad to know your doglet is feeling better.

    And I wish you all the best for your surgery and for your dreading process. I am looking forward to seeing pictures of the new dreadies. You will look gorgeous!



speak your mind! always!
