I think it is just the universe reminding me that my life is good (despite the aches and pains) and that I should be grateful. And I am.
I'm very grateful that we had another wonderful family Christmas in July celebration - that so many of my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, one brother, a nephew and grand-nephew, came from near and far and made it safely back home.
Grateful that my sweet eldest granddaughter, Katrina and partner, Brad, hosted our party this year (and that I was having a 'good' day) so all I had to do was show up and enjoy - and especially happy that she trusts me to be the one to first learn whether I'm having another great-grandson or great-granddaughter and bring the cake? balloons? other? to the reveal party in November. Trusts me even though she knows my mischievous mind is already at work.
C'est si bon, 'it is good'. I like that better than c'est la vie, 'such is life', which seems to be used more often but to me feels more pessimistic. Perhaps I don't always demonstrate that I feel that way, but my life has been good - very good. Remember that.
