Gratitude



This morning I was given:

Two heartfelt, unsolicited, hugs from my favorite son.

One skein of geese, headed west and looking all not-winter-yet, and making me smile.

One set of puppy kisses, all warm and snuggly, getting the water off my cold fingers after I went out for fish tank water.

One batch of cookies from a recipe from a friend in Canada....well, actually I baked the cookies, but they sure tasted good.

One package of TicTacs left by my computer. What a nice and unexpected little gift.....I hope she wasn't trying to tell me something.

One tom turkey, of which I am absurdly fond, still alive this morning after being mauled by a rooster yesterday. The rooster was not quite as lucky.....

Someone to buy hay so maybe the taxes can get paid next year.

One quiet horse going out to pasture that didn't kick doofy Daisy in the head, even though she heeled him all the way, looking proud of herself as if it was all her idea that he go out for the day.

One small person saying "Please" to Uncle Alan to get the Christmas lights turned on, and "Thank you," for a cookie.

Warm busy house, warm noisy family, warm foolish dogs......all the good stuff, all morning long.

Here I was trying to be nice. And you think I was insinuating you had halitosis.
At the same time. I love you bunches.
