Gratitude Journal Day #618: Monday, 5/9/22

3.) Chair still works – This is the story. We went to kid #4โ€™s soccer game. (They won. She scored. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ. However, a wet field dismantled my plans for riding my wheelchair to her game. She pushed me. (I knooooow. What an opening stretch/warmup! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ) That got my wheels muddy, grassy, everything bad for house floors and carpet. When they tried to clean it, oooooooooโ€ฆ Alarms screamed water warnings, then shit stopped. I was terrified we broke it but 4 hrs later, it kicked into normal gear and I breathed relief, bowed in thanks and washed off the sweaty fears.

2.) Mom ainโ€™t mad – Maaaaaaan, I MEANT to call. She called me to check if I was good! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ. I just got crazy busy doing work I love. I didnโ€™t want to text because that was too impersonal and next thing I know, it was too late. Her acceptance of my story really calmed my nerves and slowed my anxiety. Thank you Mom and I apologize again.

1.) Home safe – Everytime my wife & kids come home safe from anything, Iโ€™m grateful. My wife is the ultimate prize for winning life. The feeling, emotions, pride is the real prize but sheโ€™s the proverbial trophy. My kids are the most imperfect, accountability coaches. Their well-being forces me into a comfort zone where I can chill and be ever-crunk Iโ€™m doing okay. Their well-being validates my efforts to be a good father, responsible citizen. ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
