The grumpies for staying home for two days, missing work and using up sick days of which i have only a few (due to using them all at the beginning of the year since they only give you THREE days bereavement!) transformed into gratitude that lil’ boy isn’t seriously ill, and is, in fact, back to his happy, chatty, bouncy boy self + cool stories about the ER and blood draws for his kindergarten friends. AND gratitude that I have a job where I can take a day – or two – off and it’s not a huge issue.
Bonus: My daughter loves Michael Franti and his new CD and is downstairs singing “Gloria” as I type.
Note to self: Life is good, don’t ever forget it.
