Okay you guys, there are going to be days that are just too darn full for me to write much. Every day I wake up and I’m not really sure what I’ll write about, but it usually just spills out of me at some point in the day. Today I had an idea ruminating, but I never had a free lick of time to write it down.
But, I was able to spend the whole day with my kids (save the early morning hours I spent at work with a plumber…). We had a visit from my lovely cousin, and I she jumped right in to egg dyeing with my girls.
I was able to gather my brothers for a beer this evening. It was the first time the three of us have been alone together since dad died. It was sad, and beautiful, and it made me so grateful that we can lean on each other, even when there isn’t much else we can do to ease things.
Then, I had dinner with three of my favorite people (and one of them is on my couch right now, waiting for me to get this done, so I won’t linger here much longer). One of my dear friends is just weeks (days?) from bringing a new life into this world, and this may have been our last meal together before we welcome a very lucky baby boy into our fold. So very exciting.
So for today, I’ll say I’m grateful for all of the wonderful people in my life, and for oysters and wine, for tears and laughter, and for people who are comfortable enough with me to share the whole spectrum.
