I am sitting on my porch swing at about 5 AM, watching the sun rise and writing in my journal and feeling completely content and happy. I turn 50 today and I love my life. Knowing how things can turn on a dime, I may not feel like that tomorrow but for today I am full of Joy. Thank you Lord for the many blessings of family and good friends and a beautiful home to enjoy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I finally decided to let the cat out of the house. After moving into our new place in the city, I was hoping to keep her indoors for quite awhile but she had different ideas. Too many years of roaming our property in the country gave her a love for the outdoors. She has been prowling the house crying and clawing the doors to get out and so after a month I relented. She seems perfectly happy to sit in the back courtyard and soak up the sun, for now anyway.
