Today, I am grateful for...

for the first time in a long time, and oh so sorely needed. My mind has been a mess. My body is a mess. My poor kids.

quiet together-time
watching the silhouette of the tree branches on the bedroom wall with the kids. Listening to Orlando tell stories about what he was seeing.

talking to K and getting everything out about how overwhelmed I feel. She said it's like transition (K is a midwife). You're saying, "I CAN'T DO IT! But you are doing it." She's right. I am always the biggest mess right before things change. Just like that, transition is over and you're on the other side.

being alive
Listening to the trees blow in the wind from my window after I meditated and really feeling happy to be alive, about life.
