Up early, do what you can.
Tip-toe into the kids’ room, blow them a kiss, piggyback to the one on the cheek, hand the night before.
Move the pile of clean laundry from one spot to the other; gotta fold that tonight.
Sip cold brew, do a little work on your day off.
Take solace in the birdsong drifting through the open window.
Reset another password.
Push anxiety and doubts aside.
Thank God for another day.
