The littlest things can inspire you.

I have been in a major rut lately. I don't know exactly what brought it on, but it has just been lingering. Finally today, I feel like the haze is lifting. I went to have coffee at Starbucks with my favorite aunt, who is also my godmother. We just sat and sipped our drinks (and you know mine was a mint mocha chip frappacino) and chatted for 2 hours. I really love spending time with her. She really inspires me with how when things are tough, she keeps going and going and going and going. Don't get me wrong, she's not superwoman (well, she is in some respects), it's just that even when we talk about the "little black clouds" she always has a positive attitude and just keeps plugging away to the positive outcome. The little one, of course was an angel, for the whole two hours. He chatted with us for a little bit and then took a nice long nap in his stroller. It was so relaxing to just hang out. I feel so relaxed now, and ready to complete all my tasks.

I also got some promising news today. My cousin was diagnosed with cancer a litle while back. Well last week, he completed his chemotherapy treatments. His tumor marker is down and his doctors are very optomistic. He goes in for a test at the end of the month that will reveal (notice I am saying it will) that all is well with him and he can get back to enjoying life again.

Well, that's it for now, I better go scrap while I'm feeling the inspiration!!!
