It’s Therapy Thursday again, in case you didn’t know. So here’s my list. Did I miss anything?
Pink Dogwood blossoms
Listening to The Beatles
Sloppy baby kisses on the mouth
Singing badly to really loud music when I’m in the car by myself.
Squishing my toes in the mud after playing in a steamy, hot, Virginia summer thunderstorm.
Making people laugh.
Writing. And reading my own writing, which surprises me.
Dreaming about my non-existent patio, upon which Melissa and Karyn and Emma and countless others will sit and sip wine with me while the kids play in my back yard.
Digging up worms. I’m serious. Try it some time.
Getting really, really dirty in the real dirt (not fake amusement park dirty, not sticky and ew bathroom germ dirty), then taking a nice, hot shower and putting on comfy clothes.
David Sedaris publishing a new book.
And in case you think I’ve lost my edge with all this gratitude and joy, don’t worry. The other list is much longer.
