What the Rapper Ice Cube Knew About Days Like Today

I’m completely out of gas, but my heart is full.

Today was a bigtime family and friends day.

It was exhausting in every way.

But it was equally enjoyable and fulfilling.

Precisely as holidays probably tend to be with two young kids.

But today was also about Dad.

I got to spend the day with some of my oldest friends and their kids.

Tonight we broke bread, told stories and laughed of days gone by.

I cooked a huge dinner for our crew that they seemed to enjoy, which was gratifying. It was one of those times I was so tired from cooking that I barely ate the meal I spent over 3 hours preparing.

So it goes.

I got up with my infant before dawn this morning and spent some quiet time with him before the madness began.

It turned into a gorgeous bright and sunny Christmas Eve.

And was an ideal kind of day; full of joy and laughter with perfect weather as the backdrop.

I can barely keep my eyes open as I type tonight.

And while I should sleep tonight with holiday cheer in my dreams, I’m perhaps a bit disappointed all the same.

Because it means today has ended.

And in the words of Ice Cube, “Today was a good day.”
