Posted:A wonderful member of this board asked me in a PM how my life was going, below is the reply, which I would like to share with everyone on HoP.


Quote:
Hows life going? That's a good question to ask me at the moment.

I had a bag stolen from the 'green room' tent at a community gig today, with lots of $$ of balloons in it and my brand new cellphone!

I've got to go in to work tomorrow (Sunday) to finish off a report that I was asked to do on Friday for Mondays board meeting!

And I'm completely and utterly broke!

But guess what? I have the love of my life upstairs in the lounge, my wedding ring on my finger, my nine month old son (after the doctors told us we couldn't have children) upstairs asleep in his room, I live in a wonderful country with virtually no problems on a word scale, and I think I can say , after having my property stolen, that I have reaslised I am truly happy and content.

I almost feel like thanking the thief for bringing my current happiness to my attention! :-)

In fact I feel so good, I'm going to copy this PM and post it up on HoP...

It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.
