Tonight on this gorgeous spring evening, I’m going to take a break from our promised agenda of telling how we met and write about how thankful I am. Today has been magnificent in every way. Relaxing on the back porch writing, reading, meditating, playing with the dogs and spending time with my love. I am purely grateful for this time when so many are frantic and unsure. Moments of peace become even more precious, as is the ability to recognize these moments.
For the past week, I have been making time to stand again. Both my body and spirit have embraced this eagerly. I feel stronger and more enlivened from the exercise, and today, I took a few steps again. Megan said they were among the best steps she has ever seen me take. I’m not sure why, maybe it was just the right time for me to work on it again. Perhaps it was the beauty of the day. Either way, it felt wonderful.
The graying sky, cloudless at dust, is another gift for which I am grateful, sitting here beneath it writing face to face with Megan. This is a wonderful life, and I am grateful for every moment.
