A Partner

Today, I am thankful to have a real partner in life. Someone who simply notices I look tired and asks if I want to go lay down, offering to take over with Kiran and the dog (because it was approaching a busy time in the day – dinner time – when both the boys need things).

I haven’t been sleeping, but this time just lying in bed, scrolling social media, resting…I needed it. I need it often – more often than I used to admit or even realize – but having a partner who chooses to show up and support me and give me these breaks really allows me to notice my own needs. And even tend to my own self from time to time, which shouldn’t be a novel concept, yet is, even at my age.
