I loved reading you all's comments last blog, and some of them expressed gratitude in so many words for what you have, including your routine and your workaday at home and on the job. It is how I feel each day. As soon as I open my eyes for a l-o-n-g time in my past to present, I have always given thanks for being safely conducted health and safety-wise through the night. I open my eyes- and because she's always there doing head bonks against my forehead, first I always say good morning to her Majesty.
Then I say my thanks for still being here (no, nothing is wrong with me that I am aware of...just feeling simple gratitude) to greet the day which I do. Another day. And a routine I have. The day is beautiful regardless of the weather that wraps the day up as the gift it is. Rain again...great. Sun? Even better. Watered silk gray skies...bring 'em on. Ruffled gray or white clouds covering the entire sky dome...welcome! So glad to be here to see you each and every weather condition. Cold, hot, warm, cool. Rain, snow storm. It's a gift that I have never taken for granted. So I am appreciative.
Speaking of gratitude, I am grateful for friends. Either here and in person, or on-line. We in the CB and in our own blogs away from our furs, have made deep lasting friends. Sometimes we are even fortunate enough to meet them. And for me, such meetings have never been stranger-like. I know these people. Only now I get to see their faces. What a privilege it is to have friends.
I wonder what you feel may be the best facet of your personality? The part of your personality that everyone might say is what they think of when they think of you? For me, it has to be humor and right next to it, deep empathy and care. I'll mother you to the end of your patience sometimes if you let me. 😱 I think I'll put a cartoon in here that I found a week or so ago. It was so like me with my kids as they grew. I sent it to all of them to see...even though the joke's on me. I don't care. I am the first to laugh at myself.
Enough. This is getting too long again.
