Good Life

My life is a good life.

We have a roof over our heads.

And there’s always music and spontaneous dance parties in the living room.

There’s enough food in our fridge to feed a small village. Oddly, sometimes it feels like there’s a small village living here.

Thankfully, Allan has a job that affords me to stay home and raise our small village children.

And our small village home is filled with laughter, from-the gut-laughter that makes us throw back our heads like pez dispensers to release the most boisterous, obnoxious cackles and cause us to fall out of our chairs from laughing so hard.

But I’m so blessed because Allan is a great dad and husband but occasionally he chooses to hit “ignore” on his cell phone while I’m stranded at the gas pump or my car battery is dead, which is not a good thing when I’m PMSing.

For the most part,  our simple little life is a good, good life.


For the next four Music Mondays, I’ll be counting my blessings through song.  Each week in November, I will be singing my praises and giving thanks by sharing a song that symbolizes one of the many blessings in my life.  Come count your blessings with me and link up while you’re here.  What a blessing that would be!

Visit Xmas Dolly and Hairbows & Guitar Picks for more Music Monday fun.

Pssst….Don’t miss my Run TBay Giveaway!

    I like Good Life even though it isn’t a tune from the 80s. I saw on someone’s blog already you had forgotten Marie picked your request. That’s okay, girl! We all have mental breakdowns. lol. What I really liked is this funny video on teenagers! It’s really hilarious. Thanks for sharing. Dance over to my place when you get a chance. =D

    Great post – like the tune & glad you are enjoying your village. I posted a “Freebie” due to only catching the top 1/2 of Dolly’s post on first scan – I think we are all just a little off on Mondays 😉 Have a great week!

    That is one of my absolute FAVORITE songs! And your hubby sounds a lot like mine… 😉

    I totally thought of you when I picked the Run DMC song – in fact, I accidentally typed it as Run DMT at first! 😉

    What a neat post! Isn’t it great to know that you are truly blessed with a wonderful husband, beautiful children, and a warm loving home. I think about the same things every single day. I guess the simple things in life is what helps keep me going.
