Even as the world is so dire and sorrowful, I’ve been brimming with bountiful gladness, which I am savoring because that’s what a smart person does.
I’m glad for Bob’s lopsided gorgeous grin, for the steady courage of my daughter’s heart, for my bonus son’s delight about his new job, for the stiff-legged hop my old dog Stu executes when he launches himself up to snuggle on the couch next to me.
Glad for the gaudy pink flowers in my garden, for a meandering conversation with my friend Lisa on my porch, for the monsoon season and its afternoon growls of thunder reminding me of childhood summers, reminding me of feeling safe and loved.
So much goodness.
I want to try and share some of that with you in a small way.
