I was so excited when I turned 15, I have a phone line put in my bedroom and had my own independent number. I could talk to my friends and not have to be in a room full of people. I was in heaven. Little did I know in a short 12 to 13 years later I would have my first cell phone as it was important for me to have one in case of a problem with our new daughter. That phone was one of the first with texting, but you had to touch the key multiple times to get the right letter. It was a pain to text. And the phone was also a heavy wide phone with a flimsy antenna. I upgraded to a filp phone and still had the texting trouble, but it was smaller.
Now a days, I use the camera on my phone. Play some games on it and am a good friend with Google. I can pull up maps and get directions. I use the alarms and calendar reminders. I can go to Facebook and WordPress and catch up a bit. I have unlimited data and feel naked if I don’t have my phone with me. It is a lifeline still to friends and family… I am so grateful for my telephone.
This is February and I am well on my way to attaining a goal I set for myself. I am trying to post every day with happiness and gratitude that I have encountered that day. There is always something no matter how small it may seem that we can be grateful for and even just a shared smile can make you happy if only for a moment. Please try to find those moments for yourself too… if you’re up to it I would love if you would share them too in the comments or your own blog. Being aware can really turn a day around!
I know I have mentioned my cat before… but I really love cats and kittens. I was watching the news last night and saw a story on a website that has a camera on a group of kittens. It is from The Icelandic Cat Protection Society and when I first looked at it very early in the morning there were three kittens sleeping away. Later today I went back and found 5 kittens at play. It is so much fun to watch the kitty cam capture them at play or even sleeping – cats are just cute all the time. If you would like to see the cats they are at Keeping Up With the Kattarshians. I believe you can also find it on YouTube as well.
I am happy looking at those little balls of fluff. And grateful I picked last night to watch the news cast. I smiled and laughed and felt alright today with the kitties to keep me entertained for a while. Do you have an animal that always makes you smile?
