I was born on a cold November night, on a Friday the 13th. In 10 days, I will be celebrating another birthday. What makes this more special than all the other birthdays? Because I have found  a deeper meaning in life. I now find joy in the sunrise. I wake up and thank God that I am alive! I stand in awe watching the sunset. Another day done, accomplished my tasks, but have I made someone's life better? Have I taken care of God's creation? 

For the next 10 days, I will be paying more attention to things that I used to consider mundane.

Today I mark the countdown to my birthday. Today is Day 10. I took a leisurely walk around the neighborhood and took pictures of stray cats.

Why cats? Because I pity the poor creatures. They seek shelter from the sun's heat under parked vehicles and wait for people to take their trash out before they can have a meal. I am not an avid cat lover, but I do have a feeding dish outside our house where I put table scraps for the stray cats to eat. 

Without much ado, here are my neighborhood friends:

This kitty cat seems to be wondering why I wanted to take a picture of her.

This cat was scared and ready to take off!

My neighbor's "resident" stray cat.

Now this cat even posed for the camera!
Tomorrow will be another day for me to see the beauty of the world, and I cannot thank God enough for all the blessings!
