Late May Gratitudes


1.  The lightning spikes across the river as I watched an afternoon thunderstorm roll in from my office window.

2.  The sun warming my bare legs as I walked out of the grocery store later.

3.  The silhouettes of the Kid and my brother kicking a soccer ball against the sunset.

4.  The tub of coleslaw and the seven (I think?) bottles of coleslaw dressing my father-in-law brought up to satisfy my craving for a particular hometown restaurant's recipe.

5.  The worn-in softness and teeny bit of extra room to be found in sleeping in Sweet Husband's old t-shirts.
