I’m thankful for being reminded that I am human. And even when I have seemingly unending periods where I’m just plain tired and have no patience, that there is still patience that comes from the endless well of love deep inside of me.
I am thankful for cuddles from the incredible tiny human being we were lucky enough to have given birth to. I’m thankful for the cuddles when she’s feeling fine, and when she’s not, because it reminds me that she has her own forming version of love for me, and she finds comfort in my arms.
I’m thankful for great friends and a new-found tradition of karaoke on a regular basis. Though, there will definitely be times when we won’t be able to go as often, and periods where we will be so far apart we can’t do it at all, but the laughs, the fun, and the memories will always be there to pick back up when we are able to see each other again. It’s nice to be reminded that taking time out on a fairly regular basis really helps recharge the batteries.
