It has begun to rain!! And while I now live in a place where rain is not headline news, I am grateful for it. It feels cleansing to me. I am still very sad and confused about my inability to maintain relationships but grateful for the few friends I do have in my life. I am thankful for this blow up mattress and warm place to sleep. I am thankful for the skylight and tiny squirrel feet that walk across it in the morning. I am grateful for the delicious vegan food I've been fed and the six needy kitties that I get to snuggle. I am thankful that I am not sleeping in my car tonight as I try to sleep before another big interview tomorrow. I am grateful for the rain and so happy to have shelter from it.
