Hello Monday! Hello Birthday of My Beloved! I am grateful to be alive right now, for every breath and heartbeat. I’m grateful for all the love in my life and that bright spot that is my wife’s light, all the good that came into my life when I met her, all the wonderful lessons I’ve learned and ways my life has opened up and expanded in the last 14 years. I’m grateful for her gentle soul and firm commitments, her unwavering support of the underdog and her sense of fairness and justice and balance. I’m grateful for her love and affection for me and that she welcomes my adoration of her. She is my hero, my rock, my soft spot, my confidant, my best friend, my cohort in adventures and misadventures, my favorite travel companion, my everything. I am so blessed and so very grateful. Who are you grateful for today?
