Big little things
I don't have anything really profound to say today. Instead, I just want to give a shout out to Craig, who I simply could not go down this road without. I'm no special fan of the musician Phillip Phillips, but his song "Home" has really hit home with me lately. This song always reminds me of traveling in Chile a year ago, listening to Nate's iPod as we road-tripped down to northern Patagonia. But it is also a reminder of everything that Craig is doing for me and with me. This includes things like taking the kids for an afternoon to let me catch up on my work, running to the store at 9:00pm to get me some ice cream because dammit we're out and I'm actually hungry, cooking dinner more than he used to, and just holding me when I need to be held. Some of these things may seem little, but they don't feel little when he does them. They feel huge. And I am grateful.
