I am lying in bed, reviewing the online orders for the grocery. My finger hovers over a plus sign.
I wonder, out loud, but more to myself, “Hmmm. What about this fancy mixed berry yogurt?”
My partner is in the midst of a solitaire game on her tablet. Not looking up from her tablet, she responds.
“Girl, you are worth it.”
I blink a few times and a smile, welcome and inevitable and warm turns into a tumult of laughter. It lasts for a few moments and I realize I’m crying a little bit. She turns, making sure that I see she’s paying attention. “You okay?”
I take a breath.
“Yeah, just… I am worth it.”
