4. My boys. Ringo continuing to grow up little by little while still retaining his ability to make me laugh with his crazy antics. Sam behaving himself so well on a play date with a puppy he was meeting for the first time.
Bonus joy: how green everything is, how well our garden is doing because of all the rain and the sun, strawberries from our own garden, upick berries from Garden Sweet, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies as big as my head, Orange is the New Black Season 3, having the money to be able to put a new roof on the house and whatever else needs done, good friends who will listen to me complain, a partner who will listen to me cry, long walks with the dogs, yoga, Professor Blastoff podcasts, Skype dates with creative and interesting women, trusting that if I keep showing up I will figure out how to write this book that I’m trying to write, naps, summer vacation, being able to change my mind.
