Being Thankful

I am deep in the woods near the Neches River. It is a beautiful Texas Blue sky day in January. The sunlight is warm and the breeze is cool. I am sitting on a blanket on the ground drinking coffee.


He is just over there on the tractor, clearing some brush. He is close enough to see and if I suddenly need to touch him, I can walk over to him. He was gone fishing with his tournament partner Saturday and Sunday. Sure was a long couple of days.
I am grateful I feel this way about him. We met and fell in love thirty-one years ago this month. We’ve been through some fires and some storms. We’ve been through some miracles and some magical places. Our connection, our marriage, our love has taken on a lovely patina. I cherish him and I cherish us. I am thankful.
