Today

Today I go to bed grateful for…

the beautiful bright light who chose me to be her mama – her smiles, her hugs, the sound of her laughter, her growth, the way her brain works, her love

the kindness of friends and neighbors – a dog walked, a meal delivered, a call and an email to check in

the gifts of grief – deepened by conversation with a woman who knows them well

the chance to move my body – and the vision that I will one day look graceful while hooping

the opportunity to experience life in all its fullness, despite its sadness, because of its joy

Today I go to bed. Tomorrow I will wake up. There will be more to be grateful for.

    And we are grateful for you, Alana……for your words and for your graciousness in sharing your grief and your honesty. May tomorrow bring you sunshine that lights up Ada’s hair and continues to remind you of the amazing amount of love you bring to the world.
