I am

~ ~ ~
I have decided that I really am part cat.
I sit in the den.
Turning my chair, it's that kind of swirly turn kind.
Looking at the front woods and the swinging suet that hangs.
It was empty for a while.
Til I got Mr. Boatman to refill it.
Birds of every size have visited.
Even those big and small squirrels from the back woods.
We all like the little squirrels, as the big guys seem to eat it all.
I tend to throw old magazines at the window so they'll venture
up the tree and over the roof to the fence.
Anyway, with the sort of sun coming out through the clouds,
I find myself looking and waiting.
A visitor.
A chickadee.
I watch.
It leaves.
I am sad.
Who will visit next.
I turn my chair.
I drink my tea.
I am cat.
I am now purrfect.

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.
