Today I am grateful for:
Leopard geckos. We have two, named Pancake & Waffle. The first one we had was named Egg (hence the breakfast theme) but unfortunately he died a couple months ago. Leopard geckos are cute & friendly & if you have patience, they can learn to play games with you. I discovered that if I waited until Egg stuck out his tongue while he was looking at me & I mimicked him, he’d walk closer to the glass & keep playing with me back and forth. Something about inter-species communication just makes me happy.
Imagination & humor. Were it not for the funny pictures and characters jumping around in my head, I think I might fall into a deep depression some days. Alex’s father said to me years ago as we were listening to the radio in the car: “When this song comes on it makes all the cartoon animals in my head form a conga line.” And ever since then, as soon as I hear the first few notes of that song I see the conga line and I laugh.
What are you grateful for today?
Write it down, sing it out, share it, share it!
(and remember to play!)
