Today, and I can safely say today – because it is Wednesday (yes, sometimes we do schedule our posts ahead of the agreed upon day of posting) – today I am grateful for my eldest daughter.

Because yesterday, she shared this post’s video with me… and watching it just lifted my spirits. It really is a wonderful world…

So even though I am at the very beginning of consistently doing a weekly stand-up routine; and consistently fall flat on my face—proving yet again that I am not the genius master of entertainment that I deeply believe myself to be… “No, Greg Wilker, you, too, have to do the work.” And though I often find myself immersed in angst and woe—all the while knowing that I have far more to be grateful for then most of the planets inhabitants… and that one needn’t travel far to find evidence of pain and woe—perhaps even downright evil… I watch this video and I think to myself…

Thank you, Robyn Bri, for your bright spirit and shining heart. You are the one who would open my eyes with a resounding “yes!”—”Let’s live this life. Aren’t you just thrilled to be alive?!” And now you are in the beginnings of your teen years…

I am grateful to you. I am grateful for this song. And I am grateful for this video you shared with me yesterday. 🙂

I lub you.
