Today I am grateful for:
- My wife. She’s so supportive and patient with my health issues and needs. It’s what is expected. It’s what she agreed to, and it’s the right thing to do, but I’m still grateful. Not all spouses are so loving. Not all spouses see their partners with such compassion. I am one of the lucky ones.
- The weekend. These days of rest are so needed, more than I probably know. I’m grateful to my coworkers too who have offered me the chance to skip Monday all together and extend this weekend through until Tuesday. I’m grateful for the space to heal.
- My body. Some day I hate it, and I swear most days it hates me, but I admire its perseverance and commitment to staying alive. This body of mine, of me, is strong beyond measure and credit I give. This body never stops fighting for me and I will fight for it too. This body loves me fiercely and I love promise to love it back.
