178// Home Alone

Today I am grateful for:

  1. Days off and away from work. I needed this break more than I knew and being home, to stop and look around at all that has had to be deserted in my return to work, to have the space to to feel where my body hurts and what it needs. it’s all been exactly what I needed.
  2. My plants. I’ve neglected them a bit since returning to work, but a good watering and a few kind words yesterday had them all standing tall and looking toward the sun once again. A little love can go such a long way.
  3. Thunder. It’s rumbling all around me now but the lightning that produces it is so far away that by the time the ripples of compressed air makes it to my ears they’ve been reduced to a deep and rolling rumbling that is somehow both soothing and thrilling all at once.
