It's incredibly difficult to find things to be grateful for at times like these. I know that it wasn't in my better judgment to do so, but I did a photo shoot with the agents this morning just because I felt like I didn't have enough pictures of them or with them. So thank you, smart phone, for making that possible.
I'm grateful that I at least have a support system to help me get through shit like this. I know I've been a depressing wreck the past few days, but what else am I supposed to do? This is the first time that I've ever had to make the decision to put an animal (not to mention TWO) to sleep. It's incredibly painful and my morning has been laden with intermittent sobs. But I have good people who are willing to bend over backwards to do whatever it takes to make me feel better about this, however difficult that may be.
I'm grateful for Chelsea and Arlen and their new baby boy Arlen Gauge Smith! She had him Friday night around 8:30 and all are well and healthy, so congratulation to them both!
Also, I'm grateful for the kittens that were also born on Friday. I know that nothing can replace the agents, but just the notion that we will be welcoming a new little shit into our lives soon is enough to help me see the light at the end of the metaphorical tunnel.
On that note, I am thankful for this video to make me laugh on a dismal day like today. I'll leave you all with Bubbles' serenade.
