My daily gratitude for:
- Ryan’s snuggliness lately, as he’s been coming to me a lot and hugging me, and in a special moment, hugged me with the first uninvited/unforced “I love you” I can remember. That’s awesome!
- The beautiful morning out in the park. Sunshine and a light wind is quite nice and relaxing.
- Our new residents at St Lukes who are helping us at Texas Children’s. They are a great group, both funny and engaged with our work with children and parents and families. It’s been a privilege to provide their orientation.
- The little boy whose hand I got to hold yesterday. Ventilated and hurt from abuse, it was a gift to hold his hand for a short time. There are many words for the experience but it is a sacred one.
