I should be sleeping right now, but the great horned owl in the woods is telling me to write my thoughts, while neighborhood dogs bark their agreement.
Today was a half day… More like two-thirds day, wrapping up at about 2:30 pm.
I got home to Nathan grilling up veggies and chicken. There was a bit of enjoying sunshine and a couple of hours of relaxing in decent weather. It’s trying to warm back up so today was tolerable temperatures and blue skies with amazing sunshine.
It was good to be able to have a healthy dinner in the yard again, even if Anya did play bashful.
Afterwards I watched a cartoon with the kids. Netflix recommended it to us. “Mighty little Bheem” it’s called. I think HAL told Netflix I’d like it. Either way, they’re right, I did enjoy and the kids liked it too. I’m happy for something better than PJ Masks.
After one episode Nathan started kid’s baths and bedtime ritual.
I was about to shut the TV off when I noticed Kindness Diaries, and realized he was by a VW bug. After watching the preview I realized it was a second season and got sucked in. I proceed to watch 6 episodes in a row, crying repeatedly. Anya teased me a bit, but I don’t care.
I thanked God for Leon, for the show, and for another mountain of evidence that kindness, caring, and good people still exist in this world. It gives me hope and helps me feel human.
I so very much want to have an impact like any one of those people. I feel like I aim for that every day, but miss more often than I care to admit.
So, for now I’ll cry tears of joy over other’s good deeds and dream of a bigger impact myself. One day I will get to give back in a grand way like Leon. For now I’ll let myself be just a little jealous of his journies, and remind myself that at least I care and try to have a positive impact. That has to count for something.
May you all have a positive impact and find joy in kindness towards others. Good nite and sleep well.
