240: How Today Made Me Feel Better
Indeed, the trial has been emotionally draining. But a good thing: today, Ryan and I took the dogs for a long walk today, enjoying this small bit of blue skies, the sun shining down as we gazed over the Mississippi River and local grainery, knowing the melting is only so far away... I do intend to ruminate on the trial as much as I legally can just as soon as it is over, but we have been called back for this coming Monday. For now, all is quiet, my husband is charmingly distracting (he even danced in front of the newspaper dispensers downtown as we walked by), and I hope whatever is decided is right and just, though after this, I only wish I truly knew what those words meant. Instead, I only know love, right here and right now, no matter how snowy and gritty it might be, and I am grateful because I will always feel safe. Who knew this love would need to feel safe for me to sleep at night.
