today


today i am sad.
today i am sick.
today i am in pain.
today i cried.
today is like so many others...

yet,
today i am loved.
today i have known compassion.
today my feet are warm in fuzzy boots.
today i laughed.
today is like so many others…

today you encouraged, today you caused laughter. I have been catching up on your Christmas posts, enjoyed the picture of Snappy and you, looked up the Basenji breed,they do not bark but can whine and they yodel how interesting lol, yours is so cute, I especially like the one where you have her picture and I think a quote from Ecclesiastes, I will be keeping you in my prayers!
