This morning, I am grateful to have woken up one more time, as I am ever mindful it is a gift. I am grateful for the sounds of life which surround me (birds tweeting, cats purring, Zoe snoring, Sam talking). I am grateful for the smell of freshly washed clothes and body. I am grateful for the taste and smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning. I am grateful for the plants which are growing in our front and back yard as they are reminders of the Ultimate's creativity and artistry.
