In light of the situation in Southern California, I decided to terminate my couch arrest and take a moment to appreciate the things I take for granted.
I am thankful for so many things - like, tennis balls and peanut butter and PIZZA. But it never crossed my mind to be thankful for the stuff that Fievel can't steal from me - such as fresh air, a safe house, and clear skies that let the sun shine through the windows.
I'm so, so sad for all of the animals and humans affected by the wildfires in So. Cal. - not to mention all those trees, grassy patches, and structures that behold centuries of historic Pee Mail from our forefathers. My Auntie MoJo lost everything in a house fire last year and it was devastating - I just can't even comprehend loss at this magnitude. I am deeply saddened.
My heart goes out to all of my dog bloggin' friends who are braving this terrible storm. Please be safe.
