My Cat Sam….

Sam the Cat

Today I Appreciate….

  • My Cat Sam – This guy makes me laugh more than some people that I know, he is always happy to see me, he loves being around me, he is ALWAYS ready to play, he is a teacher of allowing, he is my friend….he is my cat Sam.

I found him waiting for me in a abandoned doghouse when he was about 7 weeks old. He looked up at me and mewed as if to say “What in BLAZES too you so long, can we go now?” I took him to my mother who promptly fell in love with him and named him Sam.

I did not know how much this cat would bring to my life until 8 months later when my mother died.

He was there for me. I though that he needed ME (and he did), but  I did not know how much I needed HIM, until shortly after my mother transitioned and there was a opportunity for someone to take him…. I couldn’t give him up. Coming home to the house night after night and having him meet me at the door was such a indescribable help in making my way through a very confusing and scary time.

He is an amazing being and I appreciate all that he gives me.

Thanks Sam!

I appreciate the beautiful snow falling this morning. Here, it had a delicate quality about it that was pleasant to watch.

I appreciate that my bf and I have a lot to talk about. We share a lot of interests and have great conversations about books, movies and other things. But what always brings the joy is the great, sometimes unexpected insight he can bring to things. I like to bounce ideas off him and he often presents a side to things that has such depth and understanding. He brings such comfort to me.

I appreciate that I have a lot of friends and family coming to my birthday party this Saturday! I will be decorating with lots of spring colors and flowers. The decorations not only signify me shaking my fist at the cold saying “Not for long!” but also for all the blossoming I have been doing the last year.

I appreciate that I have a job that allows me to live the comfortable life I have. I also am very appreciative of the health benefits and retirement. They mean a lot to me.

I appreciate that I live in an area where we don’t usually have to worry about such natural disasters such as severe earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes or floods. Yes, we experience some of these, but on such a scale that it does not take lives like it does elsewhere. For this I am not only appreciative but thankful.

Yes - I Appreciate that too! Thumb up 0

I appreciate this morning’s bus ride to work and all the time to relax and be totally unconcerned about weather & traffic that it afforded me.

I appreciate the recognition I received today for a project I have been working on for months.

I appreciate having my hair back without the need for the special attention having the braids required.

I also appreciate how the experience of having braids again showed me how my priorities have changed since I had them 10 years ago… my how things have changed 🙂

I appreciate becoming permanent in my job and all the perks that come with it.

Yes - I Appreciate that too! Thumb up 0
