A bond…some things blessedly stay the same…for now

“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize
that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”

Eckhart Tolle

“Man can no longer live for himself alone.
We must realize that all life is valuable and that we are united to all life.
From this knowledge comes our spiritual relationship with the universe.”

Albert Schweitzer


(the Mayor and Peaches / Julie Cook / 2021)

Three years…
two cats…
one baby girl…
(and of course one baby boy…however the cats only gravitate to the Mayor…
the Sheriff is not known for his gentleness…something about being two fisted with
a ball bat and golf club all of which makes the cats very nervous)

The cats tend to avoid this one…

God has created me to do Him some definite service.
He has commited some work to me which He has not committed to another.
I have my mission.
I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next.
I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.
He has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work.

St. John Henry Newman

    When I was a boy, the family cat avoided me too. I was heartbroken. Thanks be to God a became a gentle man who gets along with 98% of the cats I meet. J.

    • My husband came late to the table of sharing life with various cats— begrudgingly it came about when we met and married as I came with a cat—
      Now “my” cats gravitate to his lap 😱

        When I was visiting my high-school sweetheart, after several years of being “just friends,” one of her two cats took to me like I was her new best friend. Her owner remarked that I was the first man this cat had liked; usually the cat was afraid of men. The cat’s approval met something; the high school sweetheart and I eventually got married. J.

      • Hooray for the hero cat!! 🙂
