It has been a week of anxiety, benevolence, courageousness desperation, elegance, fear, gluttony, hatred, ignorance, jealously, kindness, loyalty, malfeasance, nobleness, opposition, perseverance, quietness, resilience, support, tenacity, unity, virulence, wonderment, xxxxxxxxxx, yelling and zeal. It has literally and figuratively gone from A to Z.
I realized a bunch of things this past week.
My kids are awesome.
I love, admire and respect my husband.
I am grateful for my parents, my friends, my home and my colleagues.
Pretty things are nice but people and lives are more important.
My job is the best job in the whole world and I am so lucky to get to wake up to it each day.
I am pretty sure that as sad as this has all been, we will be stronger for it.
To all the wonderful people that have come together to help, you are lights of hope for a country that maybe isn’t as broken as we think it is, after all.
So, here’s to next week, and the week after and all the ones after that where each day can only get better.
of the storm, my love, as you learn to sail your ship.
