Day 30: B.
I've pretty much wanted to post this photo since day 1 of my thirty days of thanks (OK OK, I've pretty much wanted to post it since it was taken 8 months ago) but held off until now. Play it cool, Trish, play it cool. It's a perfect, sweet little ending to a month full of all things gratitude related.
I am extremely grateful for B; for his kindness, patience, generosity, affection and playful disposition. I am thankful for how hard he makes me laugh every day, for his support and listening skills to pay the bills (seriously, B, how do you remember everything I say?!). I am thankful that 11 years of friendship have given us a foundation of trust that makes 3,000 miles much more manageable...though still not my favorite. I am so proud of, and inspired by, him for changing his life course and following his heart in going back to school--I have no doubt he will be an amazing physical therapist.
If I have learned anything about life-so-far it is that, in the end, we truly have no idea how it will play out for us. We should thus treat every day as a blessing and continue to move forward with gratitude, faith, love and kindness. We should open our hearts, keep saying yes, follow our bliss and trust the process. In so many ways I feel like B has helped solidify my beliefs in these ways. He is my proof that the secret to attraction really is just being yourself. Even when yourself is as quirky and weird as we are!
I'm thankful for how he has made the last 8 months so sunny and healing...and I'm oh so very excited for our adventures (down under!...meaning Australia, for all you gutter minds...) to come.
Thanks, Beebs, for being a match to my weird :)
love and light,
