Grateful that my stray cats are using the five shelters I have for them, filled with straw and catnip. I sleep better at night knowing they're out of the wind, snuggled into the straw.

Thanks, Opi!

Grateful for your posts about Billie and the stray cats, Least. They make me feel like somebody cares even for the smallest most ragged creature.

Grateful I can just appreciate the beauty of the snow, without having to go out in it.

Grateful to have SR to comfort & guide me.

Grateful for the positive energy here
Grateful for stories of love, loss, struggle and rebuilding
Grateful for feeling protected and sheltered in the midst of a bad situation that is outside of my control, that there will always be people stepping up to do the right thing and offer help
Grateful to feel peace and strength and to be able to help others in need
