I Am Blessed

Got up early this morning and did some laundry and then went and took care of the kitten next door with my girls who have been taking real good care of little "Izzy". Izzy is a little kitten I rescued from my yard sleeping in a old tree stump just a few weeks old with no mama cat in sight. I already have 3 cats, 1 dog and 4 fish so I really couldn't keep her so I had told my next door neighbor about the kitten and they so kindly gave her a forever home with them. She is looking so much better a little fatter and the little scratch that was once on her nose is gone.

Alan had to work in the store today because he had already given our employee the day off so my girls and I picked up my Mom and We also went to my Aunt MaryAnn & Uncle Eddie's 38th Anniversary surprise party around 2:00 p.m. We had a great time.
The picture on the right is them coming in and being surprised.

We got home around 7:30 p.m. and then I went over to go and feed my cousins turtles while she is upstate at her cabin. They are so cute as far as turtles go. I will try and get a picture of them when I go to feed them again. Then Alan and I took the girls to Friendly's for a quick bite. David just wanted to stay home because he wasn't feeling to great.

On the way home, we stopped at Dunkin' Donuts so I could get coffee and there was a homeless man sitting outside. I felt so bad for him. It really does make me feel grateful and blessed for what I do have. You know when you complain...I don't have this or that....well it puts life into perspective. I ended up giving him the few dollars that I had left in my pocket and I know he appreciated it. Last year my son David and I volunteered through church at the soup kitchen making sandwiches for people in need. It was a good experience and I am hoping to do it again.

I got home and grabbed my Ipod and went walking with Molly for a little while. It is good exercise for both of us and helps me sleep better. Oh and speaking of Molly doesn't she look cool with her sunglasses!! LOL!!

Well I am off to go read some before I get to sleep. So far the book I am reading "The Shack" is very good. I wish I had more time during the day to read. It is hard with the kids running around so I am lucky just to have a little quiet time at night to read in bed.
