Tonight as I tucked the kids in, I fell in love all over again.
It was a long day, full of too much. I came home to a beautiful dinner, sweet kids playing various things, doing homework, being at activities.
My partner and I split the day with a sick kid. He fell asleep in the chair, head tilted to one side, with his computer on his knees. Such a hard working, loving man. My heart swelled with love and gratitude.
As I tucked each of the four kids in, we talked about our gratitudes for the day. One said friends, another said family, one said the rain, and the other said our cat. I love hearing their joys and sorrows of the day. It makes me feel like I am the luckiest person in the world. It witness these moments is pure magic.
As I say my gratitudes tonight, there are too many to list but for starters it’s our little family, my loving mom, working with people who advocate for equity and education, the rain and my partner who lights my days with laughter.
Tonight, I fell in love with my life, all over again.
May love and gratitude fill your days .
