Life can take a lot of turns. It can give us lemons and it can give us lemonade. You all know I try my darndest to be upbeat and happy - even through sad times. I am a proverbial optimist - a Pollyanna if you will. I do know there is far more good in our lives than bad - we just have to realize it.
Some days are harder than others.
UPDATE: My niece has no brain activity, and the family made a decision to remove life support. That will be done on Saturday at 2PM. That gives her mom, one of her sister's and her one daughter time to get here from another state, and her other sister and child to get there to say good-bye. Such a sad situation. My heart hurts for them all.
I totally understand though. Just being hooked up to all those tubes is not living - it is existing. Her soul needs to be free. I haven't seen her in many years due to her estrangement with family, but I will still miss her and I love her.
I do believe my Fluffy has gone off to end her life on this land. She is here every single day and never leaves the property. She is the daintiest kitty I have ever had. Lately she has been VERY talkative and oh so loving. She has cuddled and wanted pets and combing more than any other time. Maybe I should have seen that as a sign. I thought she was just getting closer with me due to older age.
She ate wonderfully yesterday, chased a birdie, pottied fine, and we loved and cuddled before I brought their food in for the night. It is still dark out - but at first light, I will be out looking. It hurts my heart that she would go away to die. She is 13, and has always been an outdoor baby with no wanting to come inside.
I may be wrong - but I doubt it.
Blackie seemed confused this morning too - when I went out to feed. He ate - but kept looking all around the greenhouse and smelling everything.
I do believe that now I am down to one!
It stinks when your furbbies get older. You just never know. Blackie is still relatively young at about 5 years old.
I will try to see goodness in the day, in spite of things. I got up healthy this morning. The snows weren't as bad as they called for yesterday. I have so much of my family and friends still on this earth. I have memories that sustain me. I have God in my heart.
I have all of you.
UPDATE: This little Fluff butt showed up! Don't know what was going on as she never leaves. She was ravenous too!
Thank you for kind thoughts. She just MAY have to become a house cat - whether she wants to or not!
She sure scared this Momma.
Make each and everyday count people. SMILE and LAUGH when you can. Make someone else smile and laugh. Do goodness all the time. Hold your loves close.
I am not looking for sympathy at all. There are so many people going through so much in this world, and I am but one.
Just a reminder to be all you can be and spread happiness and love when you have the chance. Accept love and joy in any way it is offered to you.
Have a blessed day my friends.
