Hello Monday. It’s a cool, summer morning in central Kentucky and I am grateful to be alive and awake and aware right now. This morning, I am grateful for my sister, Mollie, for more reasons than I can possibly name here, for nurses and techs and doctors and technology and all the people who work daily to ease the pain and discomfort of others, who soothe and smooth and treat and listen and watch – be it beloved people families or our fur families. I’m grateful for all the love and wisdom that has come to me through the souls I have loved and who have loved me. I’m grateful to have had friends like my beloved Sparky and the doctors and techs who alleviated his pain a year ago today, and I’m grateful for all those who dedicate time and energy and knowledge to making my mother comfortable right now. I’m grateful for my sweet spouse, the best friends in the world, access to excellent medical care, the wisdom of self-care and all the ways that the universe supports us in living our best life. What are you grateful for today?
