As I watch the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II I am praying for her and her people.
It is amazing to see the thousands of people there and how many people loved her.
What a beautiful procession.
The music. The horses. The beautiful clothing. The military.
Rest in peace Queen Elizabeth.
Today I’m grateful for everything in my life.
No matter how big or how small.
Every. damn. thing.
My mom, my cousin Crystal, my Aunt Rae and I went out for lunch.
My Aunt Rae has dementia. It’s just starting but it’s scary. She hears one word and says a sentence that has nothing to do with what we are talking about.
I tried to be extra patient with her and talk about when her daughter and I were kids.
It was hard. She’s a stubborn woman and she gets mad if you don’t see it her way. How she remembers it.
These lunches are often hard, but I show up. It’s not my aunts fault.
This time it was a good lunch.
Sad but good.
I work with a woman name Kua. She’s on the heavier side and always wears a black hoodie, a tshirt and leggings.
Yesterday she was wearing a pea green long sweater that buttoned in front and went down to her knees.
It was the first time that I had ever seen her wear something nice.
She looked good.
I saw her later and she had a cute black purse over her shoulder.
I told her she looked good today and that I like her purse.
Her face lit up.
It made my heart happy to see that.
What if every person took a minute or two out of their day every day to make someone feel good?
What would the world be like?
