I’m thankful that my life is not just about what I do. I work in publishing and I enjoy it. I think about it too much. But I’m grateful for my wife and kids. They add a dimension to my life that I can’t control. Little round circles of paper lay around my room next to kid scissors for no practical reason. A little shoe here and there. They made bug masks yesterday and Ellie had hers on this morning. In her mind the lips had lipstick and she offered some to mom. Mom said no thanks its not my color and Ellie went on to name five other colors, gray, white, blue, etc.
Yeh, that’s cool. What would my life be like without them? I remember being a very lonely single person. Not for very long but longer than I wanted to be.
