Petaluma Veterinary Hospital is absolutely the best sign. Always something that makes me smile.
Food for Thought
Let go of what does not serve you.
I have heard this often over the years and right now I am letting go of an old fear that I have held on to for too long. I am walking through something that I have always avoided and it does not feel good, but I know I have to walk through this fear in order to let it go.
Keeping this spirit free sometimes requires work, however, my spirit is worth it.
Life has been a little crazy the past month and I am still feeling a little upside down; however, I am grateful for life and all of its ups and downs. So here's to new beginnings....
Jamie said that in class today and it was fabulously perfect ♡
and, like many things unexpected, it turned out perfect
Biscuits and gravy are good for the soul. ♡
...but it certainly is a beautiful ride. getting Mom's car washed.

Photos: @ The Marine Mammal Center
I ❤️ my volunteer work with sick or injured marine mammals at The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, CA where I have volunteered since 2003. We rescue, rehabilitate and release the marine mammals back home to their ocean environment.
In these photos I am giving a sick CA Sea Lion a SubQ, short for subcutaneous - instead of an IV like humans receive, we give a SubQ injection, a needle is inserted just under the skin to give the animal fluids and medicine when needed.
We are the world’s largest marine mammal hospital and our mission is to advance global ocean conservation through marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation, scientific research, and education. Two years ago we opened our Ke Kai Ola: The Hawaiin Monk Seal Hospital in Hawaii to help the most endangered pinniped in the United States. I hope to have an opportunity to work there some day.
