Happy Monday! I’m grateful to be alive on this late winter morning. I’m grateful to have awakened to the sense that my mama was sitting in the kitchen waiting for me, sipping her coffee and smoking her cigarettes and that the cigarette smoke didn’t bother me at all, for the comfort of hearing hearing her voice and feeling her presence. I’m grateful for my Saturday and Sunday mornings and getting outside early, for catching up with my bestie about our busy weeks and endless Frisbee, finding frosted dandelions in the field, being able to trace the tracks of yesterday’s frosty romp in the yellow footsteps left behind. I’m grateful for my sweet spouse and being goofy with her, for nightly conversations with my dad, for good movies, the rare afternoon nap and clean clothes. What are you grateful for today? Peace and blessings.
