There is much I am grateful for today.
For standing together.
For knowing what really matters, what really counts. Knowing clearly what has priority.
For feeling tired after a day that had meaning. Feeling like how I spent today counted. More than most days of my work ever do. It mattered that I was where I was today. In ways that go much beyond ticking points on a to do list, ever repeated patterns of the same, and very little of it actually making a meaningful difference to anyone.
I’m very grateful that things seemed to go well for my friend.
I’m grateful for people who carry a lot of responsibility in their profession, and who carry it with kindness and care to the people whose lives they decide about.
I’m grateful for moments in which we can see the best in each other.
