It’s actually not that hard for me to feel grateful for the good things in my life. Even in the first few days after losing Owen, I would often think how lucky I was that Zach and I had each other, that we had friends to feed us, pets to cuddle, and an endless supply of mindless TV and video games to occupy ourselves when we couldn’t handle another minute in our real life.
I’m thankful for so many things: our warm home full of love, our awesome cats and dog that provide endless entertainment, a job that I like and feel gratified by, new video game releases, an able and healthy body, Ikea and Target (trivial but true!), fall days with just the right amount of chill. So many things.
