Happy New Year, Readers!
Glad to see you made it into 2019. I had no idea we were going from one year to another.
I knew because Mom put a new cat calendar on the wall. She said the calendar is kind of sad this time ‘cuz it’s the last time she’ll get one from her friend. She got a call today and was told he passed away last night. Mom says it really puts a damper on celebrating a new year.
However, Mom also said that we have no known schedule that tells us exactly how long we have on this side of The Rainbow Bridge, and that goes for us fur people as well.
We don’t mean to be all down and sad today, but we do have to face facts. People and fur people are still hurting. There’s fighting, even between me and Steinbeck.
But that’s not real fighting. I just like to torment you to get your attention.
MOL!!! I know that. But there is sadness in the world and we can choose to focus on it, or be thankful for each moment we get and try to spread happiness.
I like that option. Each day of cold snowy weather gets us closer to summer when the catnip will be growing again.
Yes, and each smile you give to someone else, gets passed along to others.
Don’t forget hugs and scritches.
Right you are. See, that’s focusing on good things that make us happy. If we’re happy, it will spill over onto others and they will be happy.
Mom doesn’t like it when I spill things.
That’s not what I mean. This is something you would like to spill. It’s like looking outside, seeing the sunshine bouncing off the winter landscape, and being thankful you’re inside by the fire. It’s that warm cozy feeling you like to share with others.
Mom, we’re sorry you lost your friend. Maybe he’ll find Shakespeare and tell him hi.
For now, we’ll soak up the sunshine and let it spill all over the place and maybe some of it will reach you, dear readers. May 2019 be gentle and kind to all of you.
