It's hard to be sad,
when there are so many smiling faces around.
Everywhere I look are sweet souls with wide eyes, big hearts,
and toothy grins...
always ready to share a moment.
I know that having the responsibility for so many critters is not for everyone.
I get it.
It's a lot of work... a lot of responsibility.
But, for me, it's the best life I can imagine.
And at the end of the day... no matter how the day unfolded...
they are always there with cheesy, furry smiles...
and wide open hearts...
accepting me as part of their family.
I am so grateful for this life...
for this opportunity to care for these sweet souls.
Life is good.
I've got to tell you... I am so loving this spring.
After so many springs that too quickly morphed into summer,
it's great to have a one that stays for a while.
When we awoke yesterday morning, it was only 40 degrees outside.
By day's end it reached 70... absolute perfection.
I know the heat of summer will soon be here...
so I am enjoying each and every one of these cool, beautiful days!
Each day brings new surprises in the gardens.
