Cold Winter Day

Maddy Jean and Jodie Belle last Summer
 
It's one of those cold Winter days.
Even the woods are quiet.
A few birds and a car heard but very quiet.
The purr and fur gang are napping.
On blankets or near heating vents.
 
Maddy Jean, my Golden Retriever, is having a bad day.
Might be the cold.
Might be her old age.
Jodie Belle wants her to play.
Maddy seems to be lost today.
I brought them both inside so Maddy could rest.
 
I have a lot to do.
List a mile long.
Nothing important though.
All can wait.
 
Meredith Ann is sitting by me.
Getting a pet from time to time.
Bird TV has been marvelous.
They can't get anything from the ground
so they visit us and entertain Riley.
 
I hope Maddy Jean gets better.
It saddens me to think that she has aged so much this year.
She's only nine.
The cancer surgery she had last Summer was terrible.
She had recovered but she has never been like she was.
I do hope it doesn't have something to do with that.
 
Anyway, as I get ready to do at least something on my list,
I sit here thinking that my life is nothing
compared to the worry I have for my Purr and Fur Gang.
I'd do almost anything for them.
 
So, I hope you aren't all sitting in the cold.
And, if you are there isn't a burn ban on
like there is here in my woods.
The air is not good this week.
 
I'll just make some tea
and pet a cat
and find a good movie to watch.
 
That is until the evening
when my favorite shows
are entertaining me.
 
Hope you stay warm,
 
~ JC and The Gang ~

Hope Maddy Jean's day is nothing more than an 'off' day.
Sending pats and hugs to the purr and fur gang, and love to you.

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.
