Five years ago, I had to say goodbye to my long-time chocolate child, a fat cat by the name of Sammie. Ms. Sammie had been with me through a lot of life’s ups and downs and even rode shotgun with me (in the car and not in her cage!) when I moved from Motown to SE Georgia in 2008. My heart was hurting so badly that I vowed to never own another fur baby, but two weeks later, I was presented with the opportunity to adopt Miss Precious. Needless to say, she stole my heart that day and continues to give me her own special brand of kitty love, morning, noon and night. Today, I am grateful for the gift of Precious.

(Side note: Precious is also very smart. Why did she just start rubbing on the side of my laptop, purr loudly, and then lay down next to me and do the same thing? She must approve of this message. LOL)

Between my 49th and 50th birthdays, I am embarking on a daily journey of gratefulness as there is always something, great or small, to express gratitude for. I have dubbed this journey The Grateful 49 Project, as I will endeavor to share my thoughts in approximately 49 words or less.
