Today I go to bed grateful for…
the beautiful bright light who chose me to be her mama – her smiles, her hugs, the sound of her laughter, her growth, the way her brain works, her love
the kindness of friends and neighbors – a dog walked, a meal delivered, a call and an email to check in
the gifts of grief – deepened by conversation with a woman who knows them well
the chance to move my body – and the vision that I will one day look graceful while hooping
the opportunity to experience life in all its fullness, despite its sadness, because of its joy
Today I go to bed. Tomorrow I will wake up. There will be more to be grateful for.
Your post made me smile… gave me hope… (((hugs)))
