I am loved.

I turned 48 and I found the following was true at this moment in my life: I am loved.

I have so many wonderful people in my life who I love and who give me love back. The laughter, the crying, the pontificating, the jokes, the long talks, the reckoning. All of it beautiful. All of it necessary. All of it feeding my soul.

Waking up in the morning feeling full of gratitude, knowing that I am loved. It’s something I am determined to hold onto.
