are you feeling this morning?
feel energetic, thanks. I got off to a slow start. It was hard to roll out of
bed this morning, but I made it. Got up and moving. Glad to be alive. Glad to be here with you. And
you, how’s your morning?
Similar. To be honest, I thought for just a moment that I wouldn’t show, or you

Me: I love
that you love more because that’s more for both of us.
Mibes: OK. (rolling eyes)
