201// What I Needed

Today I am grateful for:

  1. Family. This weekend we celebrated two birthdays. My brother-in-law whom I’ve known since he was in diapers turned 19, and my niece, who was born just 4 short years ago. I love them both so much and seeing them grow brings me so much joy.
  2. My wife. Having a chronic illness puts stress on even the most loving and supportive of relationships, but my wife never lets my fatigue or debilitating symptoms ruin the mood or the experience. We do our best to squeeze whatever happiness we can from every moment, and our best is always good enough for her.
  3. Life. The good, the bad, the joy, the anxiety, the love, the anger, the choices, and even the regrets. I love it all. I’m grateful for it all. I want it all.
