Today I am grateful for my daughter, Elizabeth.
At first, I thought it was going to be difficult to come up with something to be grateful for. The melancholy that came over me last weekend has been strong today, and I haven’t had a lot of "good" to think about. Then I thought of what Lizzie did for me this morning.
At around 9:30 AM, she sent me a simple text message: “I love you.”
When I asked her what prompted the message, she said I “sounded sad” on Sunday and wanted to help me feel better.
I am so lucky to have such a thoughtful, loving daughter. It has been a less-than-stellar day for me, but when I think of the love she gives me so freely, I really do feel better. She’s a big reason why I keep trying.
Thank you, Lizzie. I love you, too.
