There’s a shelter when I get home.

Lindsey, a very amazing friend of mine (hey, sweet love), shared this fantastic video on Facebook today. And I almost didn’t watch it, because I was scanning my feed after a long day at work, my eyes half-open, my brain half-fried.

But, she said something that made me change my mind: “If you do nothing else today, watch this.”

Although this came out in 2010, I had never heard of Storycorps’ “Danny and Annie” before. I have to say that Lindsey was spot on, and as those close to our hearts always seem to know, I needed to watch this today.

I don’t usually have bad days. I consider myself a joyful person the majority of the time.

Today was different. I was kind of in a funk, consumed by self-doubt, pesky worries, and just plain disheartened after a long week of grinding and juggling.

Yet at the end of the day…there’s love. Right there. Love.


I think all of us, from every speck on the map, can agree that love is this immaculate tint that covers our worlds, that turns life into a masterpiece, one radiating with color and soul.

This beautiful cartoon changed everything for me today.

There’s always a shelter when I get home. I am grateful for my husband and I can’t wait for him to hold me when he walks in that front door.

Mr. H, I write you epic love letters in my head every day. And I will continue to do so for the rest of our lives.

Press play.
