Sometimes my gratitude isn't one big thing, just a good chain of nice little things.
That was today.
First, I got to have a much needed FaceTime call with my little girl, Katiebug. I miss her, and she misses me. We spent a good half hour or so just being schmoopy and loving to one another, and talking about all sorts of good ways to connect and spend time with each other. It really felt good.
Second, as Missy and I are getting ready to go out to our friend Peanut's daughter's very first birthday party ever, the cats decided to gift me with the elusive double-lap cuddle.
Lastly, at the birthday party, amongst the food they put out was a heaping big platter of smoked salmon. That's a huge treat for me, especially now that I'm pescetarian, and can't have most of the party food that you'd expect.
What a nice bunch of good things.
