I snapped a picture of Ginger yesterday with snowflakes on her fur. She looks kind of disgusted here, but that's because she hates it when I take her picture. She doesn't mind cold weather.
|My sweet girl|
I'm doing my best to shake off the bad mood I've been in lately. I have a lot to be grateful for and I do try to remember that. And so many people have real worries and sorrows that I feel guilty when I'm feeling down for too long.
Remember the high school friend that I provided transportation to and from the hospital for a couple of weeks ago? Her 19 year old son passed away yesterday. That's the second child she's lost to Duchenne's muscular dystrophy. She's 42 years old and two of her three children have died (her daughter is healthy and not a carrier of the disease, thank goodness). I cannot imagine how terrible her grief must be.
So today I'm going to make sure the people I care about know how much I love them. And I'm going to enjoy the nice weather, and my cosy house, and my comfortable life. I'm going to practice gratitude instead of ruminating on the parts of my life that I want to change.
Have a happy Sunday, everyone!
