The Cause

“Are we celebrating anything special this evening?”  This is a common question when one ventures out for an upper end dinner.   The question itself is actually quite empty.  Sure, there are birthdays, anniversaries, job promotions, etc. that warrant a celebratory dinner, but just once I would like to answer with, “Yes, we are celebrating breathing.”.

Life should be enough to bring on a celebratory feeling.   While special emphasis is always geared to a bigger event, remembering how precious each moment is and that I GET to wake up each morning to participate, makes me feel deserving of a large steak dinner.  Tonight, Brian and I will be indulging by going to Jeff Ruby’s for dinner then attending a concert featuring Earth, Wind, and Fire along with Chicago.  To say I am excited would be an understatement, but it isn’t just about the evening, it is more about my life.

Okay, so maybe a little of it is the anticipation of going to the beach for a week in exactly five days, but I truly believe that at this stage of the game, I am more settled, content, and appreciative of every opportunity, even the most difficult ones.   While celebrating the big events is fine and wonderful to look forward to, I have to remember that each day is cause for celebrating even if it is just another day of the week.
