So. Friday. Movie release day. But I got nothin’. Could talk about The Last Jedi, I suppose. I really liked it, but don’t feel like talking about that today. No. I’ve got something else on my mind.
Today would have been my father’s 86th birthday. He’s been gone now just over two years. It’s getting better. The anniversary of my mom’s passing 11 years ago was less than two weeks ago. Luckily, with the trip back east to move Kyle, the Thomas wildfires in my own backyard, and trying to get into a regular rhythm of life, I’ve been able to keep “too much thinking” at bay.
But now, with Kyle in town, Jack now out of school for break, and Lisa decompressing from cancelled school and the fires, we’re all under one roof, and things aren’t as crazed. Which allows for reflection.
I don’t know where this entry is going, save for just a quick statement of thankfulness.
I’m blessed. We’re healthy. We have a home. And we’re together.
Find what’s good in your life. Hug it to your heart.
