Sometimes when I let myself pause in this hectic life of mine I’m overcome with all the goodness.
My supportive, loving family just miles from me. A nephew who is pure joy. A job that matters and allows me to do good in the world. Old friends and new friends who light me up from the inside out. A comfy, cute apartment in the heart of an awesome neighborhood. Financial stability. Co-workers to laugh and cry with. Cats who are quirky furballs of love. Health. Laughter. The rain, the green, the crispness of the autumn air. The kindness of strangers. Possibility. So much love. So much.
I am blessed.
I am grateful.
