My Dad is in town (Yay). He picked me up at my house this morning and we walked to my job which is on the way to the VA where he has a doctor's appointment all day. Today is the first day where I felt the cold air literally down to my bones. Ok, I'm being dramatic. It's only 35+ degrees BUT it still feels like -0 to me and I'm pretty sure he felt it too. At numerous points in our walk, he stretched his hand. I did the same. We didn't talk about it. We just went through the motions and continued on our way both conscious that each other knew exactly what was being felt.
Holding a warm cup of coffee in my dominant hand helped, a nice reminder that there can be comfort in small things. Small victories on this chilly Monday morning. What are your Monday victories?
