Thanks, and sorry.
I haven't appreciated you much for awhile. A long while.
You kept on trucking though.
Even though I didn't like you, and treated you badly.
You hung in there, and held on to the good things.
Now when I look at you, I am so thankful that you did.
Every little part of you reminds me of how capable and powerful you and I are together.
Also what fun we have had.
Those crow's feet - those are sunny mornings on the dock at the lake.
And surface-of-the-sun-bright cold winter days.
Those laugh lines - they're from all that laughing.
That belly - what yummy pizza and really good red wine we have enjoyed together.
Those thighs - well, they have welcomed men in, and they have helped push two babies out.
How amazing is that?
Those forehead lines - they are from all the amazing and unbelievable things that we have seen and heard.
How lucky are we?
All that white hair is pretty amazing too.
Just look at all that stuff we learned.
With any luck at all, we are at the halfway point.
Things may get a little messy here.
I will treat you better, if you promise to continue being your awesome self.
I know you will do your best.
Thanks for that.
