Gelto, Cowboys and Very Kind People.

It was suggested to me the other day to ask my ex if one night a week, when he has the kids and I am not working, to take one of the kids out for some one on one time. It will be a great way to break up the long week of loneliness without them. Thankfully he was receptive and so the new tradition of mom and kid date night has begun. This week was my night with Gabe. Silly as it might sound, I was so excited to pick him up, I couldn't sit still.  It was nice to get to talk with him and laugh. He is such a beautiful child. We went out for soup and gelato. It is amazing to me the pride one can feel when you see how your children are growing into young adults. I am so thankful my children are funny and kind. Gabe told our server that he wanted his ice cream to come out at the same time as my soup, because he felt it was rude to start eating when I didn't have anything to eat yet. *Gush* What a gentleman.








Today:

I am grateful to you, kind lady, who dropped this beautiful bag off at my home unexpectedly yesterday. For the ridiculously kind things you said to me. Thank you for the beautiful statue that warmed my heart and for the breathtakingly generous gift that was inside the card. You might never know how much that did for me right now. But I can tell you one thing, it reminded me that I still very much believe in people, and that there is just as strong a force for good as there is for evil in this world.



I am grateful for Sam. She took me to the CFR last night and we had a wonderful time. Thank you. Thank you for deleting awful emails I get from people and for helping remind me that cowboys and beer make everything better. I even got a picture with Crash Cooper last night.



I am grateful.
