We didn't make it in time to see any of the kittens' births, but we got to see lots of mama lovin' and lickin' and to hear little baby "mews" and crawling around searching for their first taste of milk. It was beautiful.
Today I am grateful for surprises and an open schedule to accommodate spontaneity - like kittens being born! I am grateful for my wonderful friend DeAnna who remembered to call us because she knew how much it would mean to Marisol. I am grateful for cooler weather and a new home school park day. I am grateful for a full day and a slightly earlier bedtime and a wide open day tomorrow for us to rest and recover and to start packing for an upcoming vacation.
A new space to record my gratitude, regularly. Inspired by 100 Happy Days. I've realized that "Happy" is not possible for me all the time and rather than feel guilty about that I've decided to embrace what I CAN do - Gratitude. I can always find things to be grateful for - every day, even in my darkest moments. So join me in a million moments of gratitude. The more the merrier (thankfuller??)!
