I hope for that ....

It's the Sunday after a very relaxing T Day weekend.
So nice to get away and be in the quiet world.
Peace is not enough to explain the being of this place.
The dream is to someday live there.
We took Meredith & Jasmine with us.
Meredith had a great time exploring.
She really is a sweet cat.
Likes to jump though.
Maybe that's why she has nine lives.

I came back with some new energy.
Hope to clean up this old messy house.
The yard though I will have to leave to
 Mr. Boatman and his leaf eater  machine.

I am so thankful for what I have.
I say a silent prayer ... my version ... each day.
For those who are in need ..
Of  Hope, Peace, and Health

Lately, so many have had health problems
Several cats have past away or gotten lost
I wish there was a reason
I hope for that
For Peace

So, on this Sunday in the wet woods
Surrounded by my six Purrfect Fur Friends
I am content knowing that I tried the best I could

And, isn't that what we are all doing ...

Doing our best and being honest about it is the best any of us can do. We do what we can with what we have and call it good.

Lovely picture. You are very blessed to have a place that gives you such peace and energy.

Hubby and I were happy to read that Will had found a "forever home". I've been worried that no one was going to make room for that kitty. And it's always nice to have a convert to "shelter" from "purebred".

JC, You fought the cold and YOU won. That's good, because who wants an annoying cold? I am drinking a nice hot cup of Volcano/Bolivian (i.e. forgot what I was making, an espresso or a pot of French Press) coffee in your lovely Snowman mug. Thank you so much. I'm glad you had a restful weekend.

Judy said...

Glad you are feeling energized, and that Meresith is settling in!! I have ever only had shelter cats, and the one we found in a tree, never a purebred. This time, I want one with extra toes.

Darlene said...

What a beautiful picture and post. I keep saying I will end up being the crazy old cat lady when I get older. With 3 cats and 2 dogs right now hubby says I better not "find" any more animals.♥

That was lovely!

Lovely tribute to cat friends. I miss mine. Happy Rest from the Holiday.

What a beautiful spot! I can imagine you'd love to live there some day. Glad you had a nice weekend.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

That was a real nice read!

Mom knows all about messy houses! She has been cleaning up a mess the last month.... here and in a storage shed that she has!

Darlene said...

Thank You for saying that on my blog. You look pretty good yourself, not too bad for a couple of old broads huh! You picture is beautiful, can see you sitting by a roaring fire with Mr. Boatman and enjoying the view. Seems like a place where you can find peace-of-mind. Hang in there girlfriend. Darlene

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
