61 days and small thoughts

61 more days in my LBD.
61 more days for you to reach into your pocket and give to the children.

It's hanging on the drying rack right now, because today was laundry day. And here, on the 3rd floor of this apartment, I sit on my bed remembering my first months. What it felt like to zip it up for the first time. The benefit concert. The tears. The overwhelming feeling of this is teaching me joy.
I've grown so much. I've fallen in love with loving in so many ways I could never have imagined.
I took a step out of comfort, and for a while it was uneasy. But now, what felt so foreign feels so right. So lovely. So good. 

We may not be hitting the 10k mark any time soon, but I'm okay with that. I'm okay with the amazing people I've met, the lessons I've learned, and the opportunity that has been created to love these children.

Thank you for making this such a special journey. I know I'll be smiling for the next 61 days, and I hope you will be too.

Note: Tatiana sent this to me to post a few days ago. I've only just gotten to it, so there's less than 61 days now, but the thoughts + feelings remain the same. 
We thank you always.
