Let me never forget to be humble, to say thank you, to thwart arrogance.
Thank you for the realization that it is okay to choose to be alone and that being an introvert is not a social or emotional illness. I do my best work in solitude. Dare to do what works best for you.
Over the past couple of months, I’ve been grateful to be in a position where I am free to travel on short notice to be there for family when needed. Even when life is disrupted by illnesses, there are moments to be grateful for. This month I have been grateful for the good days, for days that vomiting and diarrhea are lessened, for times that breathing is less labored, for encouraging words, for lengthier hugs, and for not backing into anything while driving by daughter’s bus (actually a Ford Flex).
I love you, Alex.
