One Of Those Days....

Gratitude means to recognize the good in your life, be thankful for whatever you have, 
some people may not even have one of those things you consider precious to you 
(love, family, friends etc). Each day give thanks for the gift of life...

I don't normally buy "presents" for anyone when we travel.  Did that many years ago,
and realized that most people really will not use these so called souvenirs.  I know I won't,
 but while walking around the shops in Jekyll Island I could not resist these little bottles
 filled with sand and shells.  Especially since it had the names Victoria and Michael
 on them, and the fact that they are currently visiting in Florida from Norway 
made it even more appealing.  Bottom line, I had to buy them.

We are happiest when we are busy.  We love running around and being on the move.
Today is no exception.  I think Arvid thrives even more when on the move.
Arvid is always making me laugh and he says I do the same for him.
We have a good time.  What more can one ask for?

Just the other day Arvid looks at me and says, "what happened to her lips?  
She looks like a bloated fish."  He saw some woman with puffy lips and he thought
 it looked weird.  That was his way of expressing it.  Always different and interesting.

Shadow is growing fast.  He loves to play and he plays non-stop.  It's very cute to 
watch him and see all the things he does.  He sure is a good little kitty.  Still likes to bite,
 and jump us, but that just makes him even cuter.  I'm still not able to hold him for long.
He just does not like it.  Still I pick him up and will continue to do so until hopefully he likes it.
He follows me everywhere, and even wants to jump on the treadmill with me.  Very cute.

My heart is missing another little kitty.  My Brutus who is dead and gone forever.
There is not a day that goes by that I don't question why he died.  Why? 
If only I can get over that "little" hump maybe I can move on.  I'm stuck.

You know they say that sometimes memories are the reason we can't move on.  My 
memories will forever be with me, but I just hope the day will come when it will be a lot less 
heart wrenching for me.  I need to love Shadow.  I like him. I take care of him, but he's not Brutus.

Love leaves a memory that no one can steal, but sometimes it leaves 
a heartache that no one else can heal.  I miss you Brutus.

I'm still trying to move on,  but every night I can't stop myself from crying over you.
Six letters, two words, easy to say, hard to explain, harder to do  MOVE ON....
