Since I’m spending today with those people closest to me, I thought I would give a shout out to some of the ‘things’ that are currently brining joy into my life.
My beloved Keurig,
You are the last thing I think about as I fall asleep each night and the first thing my mind goes to when I wake each morning. Our relationship is pretty much one-sided, but at least it’s consistently hot.
To The Best New Show on television; This Is Us:
Thank you for making us laugh and cry and care about a TV family again. But most of all, thank you for giving me the opportunity to snuggle my youngest son for one uninterrupted hour every Tuesday night.
Dear 2013 VW Passat,
You came into our life as a complete and utter surprise. But ever since, you have provided a safe and reliable mode of transportation for R and me. What a great feeling it is to jump in you for last minute road trips and adventures! Ps. We really love your ample legroom, sunroof, and kickass stereo. Danke!
And last, but certainly not least…
Thank you for your persistence. No matter how many times I duck your arrow, your aim continues to be spot on. Don’t give up on me and I won’t give up on you.
