And The Birds Keep Singing

~ ~ ~
No matter what happens in my world,
each morning the birds still keep singing.
I wake up to the darkness.
The cats line up in waiting.
The light eventually comes.
And, there they are.
Singing to each other.
Telling stories to my purr gang.
 
Today, Meredith Ann and Riley Andrew are listening.
Napping while dreaming of kitty cat things.
When they wake, they will have the best seat in the house.
Bird TV central.
 
Me, I'm the fill the suets lady.
It's a well paying job.
I get coffee in an old Eeyore cup.

Yesterday, my world kind of sank.
I was told many things.
All not what anyone wants to hear.
I had told myself that I would do fine.
Silly me.
The tears just came rolling down.
Nothing I could do.
They wouldn't stop.
 
Today, I will be making a few lists.
Things I want to do.
Things I have to do.
That kind of lists.
 
I was told that I have many options.
Being sent to a new specialist.
One who has done my type of surgery more often.
Was told that I can go into renal failure at any time.
Told that I shouldn't leave or travel.

If I do nothing, I won't have much time.
If I do what they told me, I could still not have much time.
If the surgeries work, I could make it.
 
All things to think about.
Thus, the need for the lists.
 
And, while I write them,
I'll be having my coffee while my purr gang watches bird TV.
 
May your day be full of joy, dreaming and dancing.
Remember to listen to the music and enjoy those moments.
 
That's what I plan on doing.

No matter what the future brings for you, know that you, through your blog, are an inspiration to at least one (and I would guess to many) on "how to dance in the rain."

Peace and Light.

I am praying for you, while you make your lists and listen to the purrs!!

Brian said...

Oh dear, the purrs are flowing and we hope you feel the love that accompanies them.

Oh dear, you have every right to get upset, but don't waste time on negative thoughts (easy for me to say I know) live each day as it comes and as Kea said you are an inspiration to so many others.
Sending loving support across the pond.

Sending purrs and hugs and wishes that a turnaround and many, many more years will be added to your list. Purrs...

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.
