Hello Friday! It’s a misty morning in central Kentucky and I am grateful to be alive. I’m grateful for waking early and enjoying a cup of coffee before the day swings into full-on mode, for the world’s most affectionate cat purring happily as he drapes himself over my forearms, for another cat at my feet – also purring loudly – and the harmonious buzzing that is the soundtrack to my morning. I’m grateful for ink pens that work, paperclips, rubberbands, staples, folders, software and technology – all the tools of organization and productivity and the great contribution they make to a society that works harmoniously and easily. I’m grateful that every one of my days contains a head butt from at least one cat, quiet time for me to meditate and give thanks for my blessings, a smile from my soul mate, exercise for my brain and my body and all the love I can ask for. What are you grateful for today?
