I am profoundly blessed. I am blessed most in things that matter like love, family, good food, and a safe home. Later today I have the freedom to head out to some of America's "purple mountain majesties." This morning while sipping my coffee I watched a chipmunk come to a pile of seed and stuff his cheeks to unreal proportions. He (or she) then ran off to a chipmunky winter cache, no doubt already piled high with seeds. That's how blessed I feel. And I did nothing to deserve it.
