I sit here on a beautiful sunny day, the breeze floating in thru my open window, along with the sound of birds and the rustling of the willow branches just outside.
Music plays over a computer that allows me to do the work I love, and connects me to family, friends, and colleagues all over the world.
I have my health. My family has their health. As do our friends.
I am surrounded by the books, toys, games, and photographs that have made up 30 something years of my life. And while I know they are just things, it is still nice to have them around me.
And downstairs, I hear my two daughters laughing and yelling and playing pretend. They are happy and content and safe and loved.
I am blessed to have such joy in my life.
