Taking things for granted
The meeting went well today. We got a lot of work done, and it was actually a good process. I sat and watched the wave pool in front of the NOAA building. It's really a neat thing. Right in the middle of downtown, there are waves sloshing against granite and making a sound just like at the beach.
And that thought makes me want to be at the beach. And it makes me grateful that I don't live in a big city or have to work in a highrise. Instead, I live in the country surrounded by great trees. And I work in an office that overlooks the harbor. Funny how those things are something that I can take for granted until I come to another locale. All that beauty that surrounds me is in stark contrast to these high rise buildings.
I think sometimes that I take people for granted too. I don't mean to do that. It's not as if I don't think of the people and appreciate them. I think that I simply get comfortable with them and get used to them being around. So last night I called my SO to say "I love you". I say those words on a regular basis but for some reason I wanted to say them with special emphasis.
