For the entire month of February I felt like I was riding an emotional pendulum – the contrast between life’s highs and lows was especially stark.
One day we’re attending a Minnie Mouse themed birthday party for our friends’ two year old, the next we’re visiting an exhausted friend battling cancer. One day we’re talking three hours with close friends and their newborn outside of a coffee shop on a slow weekend in perfect California weather, the next I’m hearing from a friend that they’ve were racially profiled at work and lost their source of income.
But through it all I’m so, so grateful for the friends I have around me. Hug a friend today (but only if they like that).
