It is a half past midnight. And I'm still up.
There are birds outside my window chirping.
Theo, my gato, is curled asleep against my knee.
Hansel is laughing to some late night tv.
Count your blessings my dear friends.
Take the time to see how LOVE even floods the air we breathe.
I am grateful that you share this space with me.
I am grateful for the support and encouragement--
the unconditional permission to be fully me.
