Today, I just want to say that I am thankful.

Thankful for everything we have in our lives.

Thankful to the howls and woos and barks that wake me every morning (and occasionally every hour on the hour throughout the night).

Thankful for the mud and dirt and grime that covers my boots.

Thankful for the ponies I see when I look out my bedroom window.
Thankful for the happy puppy faces I am blessed to see everyday.

Thankful for the mountain view the winter brings.

Thankful for the glorious green that I will soon see when Spring arrives.

Thankful for the mountain of laundry that I can never seem to conquer.

Thankful for the washing machine that does the work for me so I do not have to carry it down to the creek.

Thankful for the vultures that roost on the town's water tower.

Thankful for everything... big and small, good and bad, that has been part of my life and for what will be in the future.

February Already??

"Hey, Baxter!! Can you believe it is already February??"

"Huh? Oh, umm, no."

"But can I ask you one thing?"

"Sure! What?!"

"Would you get off of me??"
