squeak (day 11)

Today has been hard. 

It hasn’t been easy to be thankful. 

When Henry is upset, the easiest way to calm him is to take him outside. It was cold this morning, so instead of going out, I showed him the condensation on the screen door. 

He loved it. He wiped the entire upper glass clear, then wanted to do the bottom. I snapped this photo accidentally, trying to get a video of him squeaking his fingers back and forth against the glass. eeeEEEeeeEEEeeeEEE. 

I can be thankful for that squeaking. For that sense of wonder. For that small thing in the course of a difficult day. And for remembering it as I write here, too. Another small thing for which to give thanks.
