Thankful (a photo essay)

Life has been crazy.

My mind has been sucked dry of any inspiration.

"Just get through this." Has been my mantra.

So this week I'm going to be a little selfish and do a few things just for myself. Who would have thought that blogging on this here blog was one of my luxuries??

One post per day this thing to be thankful for. Today??

My Rooster.

I know it sounds a little crazy to be thankful for a rooster, but I kinda think he is a little special.

Reason #1 - He is HUGE. He is taller than my knees.. HUGE. It makes him oh so handsome. ( I mean for a rooster and all)

Reason #2 - He is really nice. My dad had a rooster that every time he went into the coop he had to take a big stick and beat the rooster away from him... um scary. My guy lets me pet him and on occasion when he is least expecting it I pick him.

Reason #3 - In the morning I get up, make coffee and feed the cat outside. When I open that door (which is a LONG way from my coop) my rooster sees me and gives me a nice morning "cockle doodle doo". Me in my morning sing song voice replies..

"Good Morning!"

It really is cute.

And totally normal.

I have soo much to be thankful

You...I am thankful for a friend like you :)
He is a handsome devil, isn't he? I have so much to be thankful for. A warm home, loving husband, my crazy family, all the new friends I have made these past few years, reconnecting with old friends lately, my kitty cats, and beautiful posts from people like you, all along the way.

I love chickens;) Your rooster is exceptional indeed! I used to have a rooster named Chuck. He rode around on my foot;) He was the best.

I love my rooster but ONLY because he's adorable not because he's sweet...he hardly ever tries to attack me though and I'm thankful for that.
