But I couldn't let this day pass without recognition. It's an important one for a couple of reasons. First, I want to thank all those mothers out there. While I don't have any children (without tails anyway), I recognize what a demanding and most times thankless job being a mother is. Also how vitally important it is to the development of every person on this planet! Thank you for all your love, hard work and endless support!
This day also has another special occasion attached to it for our household. Four years ago today, I found a happy-go-lucky, tick-ridden fleabag by the side of the road. The vet figured she was 10 months to a year old back then, so May 8th became her official birthday. Happy 5th Birthday Gabriel!

So Happy Birthday Gabriel and here's to a dozen more in the future!
The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship.
Psalm 19:1 (NLT)
