I ran into an old friend over the weekend and she said one of the nicest things I have ever heard, which was this:
"Every time I think about you and The Fella, I smile. It's like -- you guys remind me that really good things happen in the world."
And also, awwwwwwwww.
If I'm giving thanks this week (and of course I am), it's for just that: this beautiful life that I never expected to have.
It's for good things that happen, when we're not looking for them.
And it's for being lucky enough to recognize them when they do.
