Today is my tax day. As I pulled together files and receipts and forms, it gave me an opportunity to reflect on 2016. All of these papers were evidence of the life I lived. It gave tax preparation a whole new meaning and perspective for me.
Taxes are a reminder..
That I am paid for doing what I love.
That I bought some really awesome books last year.
That I traveled to new places to learn new things.
That some people actually bought my book.
That my home really is my castle.
That I have two dependents that mean the world to me.
That marriage to this amazing guy is always an advantage.
That I am contributing to the welfare of others.
That I am a citizen of an already great nation.
That I existed.
