When in doubt, believe the best. Whether it is for your future or about the people you know, believing the best brings back the best. It's almost like sending a radio message out to the universe, "You can trust me to appreciate the good gifts you're sending!" A little seed of gratitude can one day grow into a crop of blessings. 

Abundance is…a grateful heart.

Candy Paull, The Art of Abundance 

Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness

“Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.” 
― John Keats

Sweet kitty....

Prowling his own quiet backyard or asleep by the fire, he is still only a whisker away from the wilds.

Everything I know I learned from my cat: When you're hungry, eat. When you're tired, nap in a sunbeam. When you go to the vet's, pee on your owner.

It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.
