day 319 || gratitude for . . . 
modern medicine, listening to 13 years of experience and knowing that this year i wanted to be by myself, allowing myself to be apprehensive and giving myself permission to acknowledge the fear this day always brings about, a kind medical technician who notices my anxiety and offers to phone me with the results later today, an extra long walk along the river with the dog while i wait for her call, noticing so many tiny details and so much beauty, running into old friends along the trail with their new grandson, her reassuring voice when the phone finally rings, relief and self-respect for myself because i knew what i needed and listened, his text message back complete with emojis, and a glass of good red wine with dinner to celebrate.
