Giving Thanks.

I am thankful that my cats allow me to live with them and share their furniture.  I am so very lucky that I can act as a launching pad, scratching post, and accepter of their offerings of mouse parts.

I am so thankful that Scrappy continues to forgive me for not feeding him treats 24/7.  I am thankful that he leaves his toys and chewed marrow bones scattered about in strategic places, which allows me the opportunity to practice my balancing act.

I am thankful that I have created such a firm bond with the Guineas that they wait outside on various high roosts until I arrive home in the pitch dark to try to guide them into the safety of the coop.

I am very thankful that the chickens have taken such a long break in laying eggs that I don't have to worry about collecting them, or gathering enough to pay for their upkeep.

I am thankful for my sense of humor - which is sometimes all I have left by the end of the week.

    1. Sue - What would we do without a sense of humor to balance our lives, right? I heard my email 'ding' early this morning and thought.."Sue's up!"

    1. MamaTea - That is so true (the keepin' on part). It sure does help to keep the bright side in sight.

  7. You have either 1) become very wise and know how to look for the very best in every thing in your life, or 2) gone completely over the edge. Should we vote?

    Seriously now (as she sits up straight and sucks in her stomach), I am thankful for you, your blog, your fantastic sense of humor, your talent for writing, your joyful outlook on life and your willingness to share with all of us. You're also extremely kind, caring and generous. I'd add beautiful (you must be) but I don't know because you refuse to let us see a picture of your sweet face.
