This is what my soul has yearned for.
The ocean in front of our window,
the sound of the waves in my ears,
the smell of summer and food I did not have to cook;
and all I hear inside me is the beating of my heart that says YES.
To this vacation. To summer. To imperfect perfect me. To us. To right now, and the hell with tomorrow.
And gratitude comes naturally again. I can feel it inside me, and lightheartedness, and joy. Welcome back, me.
