Lenten affirmation, day 21

this may not seem very self-affirming, but if the measure of a man is his friends, then I am a giant among men. My friends are creative, funny, compassionate, brilliant… And just plain good. They make me laugh, think, act and sometimes even cry… Or come close. I am, after all, dead inside. I get to be around great people. They seem to think I’m one of them. That is affirming.

I’m grateful for my job. I’m grateful for my boss. I’m grateful for new friends with instant heart connections. I’m grateful for old friends who hang with me. I’m grateful for yummy food, beautiful views, and grand plans. I’m grateful for zicam. I’m grateful for Robert Glasper. I’m grateful for people who surround the hurting with love and needed distraction. There’s much good in the world.
