There are so many things for me to be thankful for today. Here are just a few.

Puppy kisses and puppy antics that never fail to bring a smile to my face. We can never have too much laughter in our life, can we?

A husband who, on the long weekend when I was so sleep deprived, got up at 6am with the dog and took her downstairs, kept her busy, took her for a walk, fed her breakfast and let me sleep until 10 am each day. Then, once I got up, he went back to bed.

That same husband who after getting up the second time of the day, worked by himself (in the hot California sun) setting stone by stone the new patio in the backyard. With my bad shoulder I can’t offer much in the way of help so I supervise and approve the placement and spacing between each stone. I did, however, vow to plant all the plants in-between the stones when the patio is done.

I am thankful beyond belief for changes happening in my life and in myself.

A change of attitude, from victim to woman in charge of her world.
A good friend or two or three.
Doors that open and close.
Possibilities that abound if one only dares to dream, then dares to put dreams into action by jumping.

Hope really is the thing with feathers.
