Little girls that love to dress up in silly clothes. Best friends that can handle me even if I want to lay down on department store floors after long days. Forgiveness and grace because I don’t deserve it and can’t earn it. Having heart to hearts on the way back from Evansville learning that I am not the ONLY one feeling the way I do. Text messages full of motivation and encouragement. Learning and embracing that I don’t know and that I don’t have to. Days with no obligations. Silly children’s television and snuggle buddies. Lunches with the whole W clan. Every single breath.
I am thankful today. It is hard. I’m waging war against my thoughts and emotions, but there is a surplus, excess, plethora of blessings, and so I am giving thanks.
