there have been years when the date slipped right by me
but for some reason, this year, it has been on my mind. . .
14 years, and there are days now that i actually forget
and then there are days that i still fret and worry.
but today i rowed almost 8,000 meters, we walked the dog
around the lake and then we went out to dinner.
i felt very much alive and so thankful i am here to mark this day,
thankful for this life we have and the normalcy of beautiful everyday moments.
