Today again, I’m not forcing a list of five things to be grateful for.
I am becoming aware, slowly, of more positive aspects – a compassionate support system of friends, family and colleagues and an engaging, creative career. These will be picked over in fine detail later, as I unravel their positive influence.
But today I am most grateful for friends who wrap me up in their lives and invite me in – not to the big sensational events – but the exquisite ordinariness of a family dinner and sharing moments with their kids.
Playing, having fun and laughing at the silliness of life, words, feelings, situations, people and stuff – just…like family. With all the love, warmth and sense of belonging that that word holds.
Just like family.
Today was a good day.
