How to Feel the Magic When Things Suck

You know those moments that happen in life when everything comes together and you feel so joyous that at any moment you may combust into a pile of dirt, sand and glitter?

I have felt that way many times in my life.

aOnce at my wedding when I looked around and saw my beautiful new husband and realized that everyone in the room was there because of us and I felt a huge wave of love.
