Oh boy – I really needed a laugh today – and Shrimp at Hairballexpress came through again! Please enjoy these cat memes – I did! :)
Most of us are sitting around a table, sharing a festive meal with family and friends, enjoying each others company.
Today, I am welcoming a friend into my home and into my family. For this, I am thankful. Thankful for being able to do this for a woman whom I consider a sister and who has been there for me many a time. Thankful that, while I can help her, she is willing to help me as well. Thankful that she understands my illness and treats me the same as she always has – with love and respect.
Today, I give thanks for all of the understanding, love and support I receive from my family. The road I travel would be a lot more difficult without it.
Today, I give thanks to the people with ME/CFS, who are using the little bit of energy they have, and their supporters, to advocate for this invisible illness. Together we are fighting an uphill battle – one that has been made necessary by neglect and abuse from the medical community. I am thankful that I have enough energy to join the fight.
In fact, everyday I am thankful for all of the above and more.
Thank you for reading this blog!
So hello everyone!
When anyone says hello to me, it immediately brings a smile to my face as I respond in kind. A moment of sunshine in a hectic day. It makes you feel noticed and valued. So much from such a small word!
Spread the love – say hello to anyone you meet today. It will brighten both your worlds!
Oh my! Great kitty memes from Shrimp at Hairball Express! Instant re-blog!
This is too cute not to share! Just gives me the warm and fuzzies looking at those sweet pictures.

Well, well, who do we have here? This little cutie-pie baby sea otter is the latest addition to call Chicago’s, “Shedd Aquarium” her new home; her journey to arrive at the Shedd is remarkable.
At approximately one week old, weighing a mere two pounds (and that is probably “soaking wet”), this tiny sea otter was found on Coastways Beach in California. A local resident taking an early evening stroll heard the cries of this dear little soul. The good Samaritan immediately notified authorities; however, due to impending nightfall, no rescue could take place until the next morning, given the sea otter pup’s remote location.
It was determined that she was orphaned; as such, she needed immediate care and nutrition. The Monterey Bay Aquarium initially took the pup into its fold, where it houses a special, “Sea Otter Program”. This program…
