So much

There is so much to be thankful for.

Like friends who text out of the blue.

"Just thinking of you," they might say. "Praying for you. Believing for really good things for your marriage and your life. Proud of you. Lots of love."

And you think it another time even though you have thought it a thousand times that day.

There is so much to be thankful for.

And jobs where you have the freedom to organize everything you feel like organizing and take on projects that let you be both nerdy and creative. You get to feel smart and needed and yeah, even loved, because you work with a really great group of people and not everybody gets to say that.

And it will make you think.

There is so much to be thankful for.

Like husbands who help you cook and make you laugh so hard when you drop a bunch of cucumbers on the floor, because GOOD RIDDANCE, cucumbers! Those were gross anyway!

And you will argue that cucumbers are good and you like them quite a bit and as a result, somehow you get compared to Satan because cucumbers are actually evil, I guess?

And then he'll kiss you like he means it and, just like he always does, follow that kiss with a boyish smile and the phrase "that was a good one."

And you'll say "I knew you were going to say that!"

And one more time, you'll think about it again and know it's true.

There is so much to be thankful for.
