Our Neighbor's Kindness....

Just for today, I will let go of anger. Just for today, I will let go of worry. Today, I will count my many blessings. Today, I will do my work honestly.
 Today, I will be kind to every living creature...

 I always have claimed that my preference is condo living rather than a house, but even I have to admit that there are quite a few things about living in a house that I really like.  Right now one of the nicest things is that the neighboorhood has a few kitties. 

Every morning when we wake up we are greeted by 2 kitties sitting under our window sill.  One is Cyrus and the other is Mama D.  I have fallen in love with them and I look forward to giving them treats every day.  In the beginning they were scared, now they come to us with no fear.

Our neighbor Connie has made it her job to "save" them.  She has opened her home to many and to the ones living on the outside she also feeds them and gives them shelter from the sometimes harsh weather.  Not often, but can happen.  Remember, when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways it can change someones life forever.  Connie has changed the life of her many rescued animals.

When we lived in a condo I never saw another kitty, unless of course I went to my friends home and played with her kitty.  Here it is an everyday thing and one I have gotten very used to and one we enjoy very much.

The other day Connie rescued 3 new born kitties and she is taking care of them until they are old enough to be adopted.  One of these kitties is very white with very blue eyes.  This one she has named in honor of Arvid.  I help out a little by buying them food and milk, but it is Connie here who has the biggest heart of all...No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion...
Choose being kind over being right, and you'll be right every time...
