Things I Grateful for Today--- an Ode to Brina:
-the way you grunt when you stretch out
-and your little snore/snuffle noises when we "doze" on the couch
-how you look pleadingly for a taste of whatever I am having... even if it's pretzels
-or the way you insist on going outside by dancing around the living room
-and Oh! how you love to romp in the woods... smelling each and every bit
-the way you love to travel... even though it makes you nervous for the first hour or so
-the way you "talk" to me if I've been on the computer too long.... or in the studio too long... or am "late" going to bed
-the way you insist on fluffing the blankets... even for me... to make it just right
-and snuggle close at night as if to say "I'll love you forever..."
*Sabrina turned 15yrs old in December... but she is still "my baby girl"....
"I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be."
