Day 10 - NPR
I know I already mentioned my love of This American Life, but a completely separate gratitude on NPR in general is in order. NPR keeps me company every single day. I'm not sure if I'd ever listened to NPR before I moved to Virginia back in the early 90s, but I've been listening ever since. Every day I love to get the bulk of my news from NPR. I firmly believe our country wouldn't be the same without National Public Radio.
This is a self-portrait with one of my dogs, you can just see her paw there on my shoulder. The thing is I really love my dogs. It seems kind of silly in a way, they are just dogs. But they are really great to have around. I like that they kind of let me know when someone is at the door without having to have a doorbell. Our youngest dog is really playful and sometimes it is nice that she bugs me to play fetch or tug of war with her - sometimes dogs remind us that we need a break, and we need to play too.
Day 13 - Little Kids
This is actually a photo of my niece. I used to not be super crazy about little kids when I was younger - before I had kids. Oh I liked some kids just fine, but in general, I wasn't a huge fan. But now I really appreciate the perspective that children bring into the world. They're really great.
14. Friends & Family
I am so grateful to have so many great friends and family in my life. There are so many people I love and people who love me back! That's really nice. Some of my friends I have had for a really long time, and for those who are long term friends who I am still able to stay in touch with? It's really really awesome. I live far away from some of the people I love, but it is nice to know there are people in many different locations who I care about and who care about me!
