*Birds chirping in the yard

*Groggy mornings
*Caffeine for groggy mornings
*Friends that want to spend time with me
*Conversations on the deck
*A special treat for Titan
*Flowers in bloom
*Finishing my bulk cooking this week
*Chives growing like crazy
*Sweet strawberries
*Almost halfway through my college course
*That God never leaves me while going through anxiety
*Tim creating a "playpen"(a fenced area around our robin's nest so that our dog can't get to them) for the baby birds as they learn to fly.
