To all of you who have been anxious about the baby kitty I wrote about last week, I'm happy to say she's doing very good so far, eating every 3 hours and sleeping with a bottle of warm water to keep her from getting cold. She (we think it's a female) doesn't do much else right now, but here are some pictures of her eating and crawling around. The gal who is taking care of her for now is a sweet, kind soul, a real animal lover and very experienced with kittens, so I know she's in good hands and everything possible is being done for her. I think we'll keep her, and if that's not possible, we'll find her a good home when she grows up a bit and starts eating some solids.
And (like you must have already guessed from the title), it's my birthday today! I'm 22 years old. What a happy and special day! Thank you, Mom, my good, kind, sweet, brave Mom, for giving me life and raising me to become a happy and thriving adult, against all odds. I love you so much!
And thank you, dear God, for guiding me so faithfully and leading me through dark times when I didn't realize yet how much I need You. Thank You for being an unconditionally loving, protective Father. Thank You for all blessings you give me every day, and thank You for making my life a sweet journey of growing closer to You. I love You.
