Linky Party Good Life Wednesday & Happy Birthday Mr BC
Wed 8th, Jun, 2011
We have had a birthday to celebrate at our old cottage…the lovely Mr BC got through another year with me ;-)
We came down to this beach in the morning for a bit of a coastal walk, and ended up right here after a nice coffee…there was not a soul around apart from a couple of old surfers….we did a lot of talking here…we are both in a funny kinda place at the moment…and this birthday made us stop and think…
phew we finally got here…
we made this huge move to the other side of the world…we bought an old cottage on the beaches…our kiddos are growing up bringing us new challenges…and we escaped the corporate rat race and started our own business -
and all of this over the last few years has been a tough and amazing ride, especially for our marriage…I don’t think you would want to hear the ins and outs of that…but we have come out the other side of it..and it seems we are much stronger…which surprises me a whole lot…I still throw vintage glass bottles and saucepans at Mr BC when he annoys me and I still kick him when he snores for Australia but somehow we are stronger ;-)
and life continues to move on for us…but it brings up for me questions….
Is this it Mr BC?
You and me on this journey?
You and me and our three?
You and me since that day in the pub all those years ago?
You know what Mrs BC?
…this lady, is quite as good as it gets…you don’t get it much better than this in life….
now all we have to do is
you don’t need much else now
You walk down a little path and steps…
you swallow and say G’day to new friends
you look on
you smile and wonder at the little things
you are amazed
you run and laugh and look silly
you sit back and sigh
you stop and smell the roses
you continue to admire shoes ;-)
you take a ride to celebrate this special day on a ferry
you gulp it all in
you are leaning over the side of a ship the wind in your hair
you turn the corner, amazed
you spend the day with those that you love…and you walk and look and gasp and smile and hold hands and jump in the air
and at the end of the day
you know finally
this is the Good Life
and that yes
it’s time to just be
