i am thankful for the little things:
my warm tea with almond milk each morning.
the knowing that some tasks around home aren't mine to do because d is happy to help out.
nicolai's very funny mouth as he learns to say new things, the slight tilts of his head, the moments we share that bring a flash of happiness all at once.
the time i have to plan and prepare meals for these boys of mine.
threads of friendship that are strong and lasting despite distance and time...their texts, emails, and our rare visits together (yes, you a, j, sa, e, st and c).
moments lost in thought...staring up into a tree thinking about the life of just one leaf in my gaze (yes, i do this).
