A Tiny Moment that Tickled Me All Day!

Have you ever seen a squirrel yawn?

Yesterday, from my treehouse temple, where I am happily writing the next book (Reaching for Orange: Practices, Visualizations, & Blessings to Help You Happy Up Your Life), I looked out the window and saw a squirrel heading down a tree. In the next instant, it stretched its front paws out into the air, so that it was hanging onto the tree only by its rear claws. And… as it stretched, I saw it yawn! It was so adorable!

At 49 years old, this was a new experience for me. I had never seen a squirrel yawn before! The amazement of it tickled me all day long!
