I am grateful for Coop, who had the self awareness, at 7 years old, to tell me he felt angry and didn’t know why, just before a hug when he was off to school this morning. He and I were having a rough go. He could have just thrown insults at me, or acted out in some other way, but this time, he just told me how he felt. I know adults that couldn’t do that. Heck! I often can’t either. Go Coop!
I am grateful for Farley, who was pleased to show me his thumbtack and rubber band craft this morning.
I am grateful for an opportunity that came up to show my paintings at Saanich city hall this month. I’m installing a few tomorrow; The rest will be in there Dec 9.
I am grateful for date night. Julie and I went out for dinner, then did errands. Sounds mundane, but it was sublime.
