A sliver of relief. A drop of sunlight on an otherwise gloomy day. A radiator that works, while the temperatures are freezing your saliva. A sip of coffee that’s the perfect color. A song that hits just the right note. A virtual visit from a friend. A funny valentine. Flowers, soup, cookies. A text. A hundred texts. A dog hug. A thermometer that reads 50. Glory fucking hallelujah. Holy gratitude, Batman, hope.
