Thankful that my husband is home
Paris is under seige.
But here in the flat center of the USA, the sun is shining, and my husband, who has traveled five out of the past six weeks, is home.
It is good to be together when the world is in tumult.
He fixed me the first good cup of coffee I've had in ages.
We feasted on leftover crustless quiche, because I made it for myself while he was gone and didn't even get a fourth of the way into it.
We sat, talked, hugged, held hands. It feels good to rest your head on the shoulder of the one you've been missing.
Together. Near. With.
I will wash his laundry from the week, and life will be mostly normal, despite everything.
I am thankful that my husband is home.
