Hello Monday. I am grateful for this gift of a day, for drawing breath, hot coffee, a hot shower, a few still moments. I’m grateful for being able to reflect back on a day of love and support, the rock that is my spouse, my family, my mother’s nurses and doctors and all the people and technology that are dedicated to keeping her comfortable and easing her journey, for dear, dear friends and community and all the prayers. I’m grateful for a better night’s sleep and feeling stronger, for finding beauty in things that don’t look beautiful on the surface and the glimpses I get every now and then of just how truly and profoundly blessed I am. Life is good and great in all its cycles and twists and dips and bumps and I am grateful. What are the things that are dear to your heart right now?
