Lately I've been grateful for coworkers
who remind me that sometimes it's best to Shake it off.
For Sunday night dinners with a table full of friends.
(and a pup who thinks he deserves a seat)
For a husband who lets me have the heated seat,
and holds all of the leftovers.
For stories from loved ones and new acquaintances
about a life very well lived...
and the laughter that comes from remembrance.
For new hobbies and stout beers.
And for nephews who want to share their treats...
...and then quickly take them back.
Cheers to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
Also, a big thank you to everyone
for the kind words, prayers and hugs.
It means a lot.
