A New Week Begins...

New day.  New week.  New possibilities.
What you tell yourself everyday will either lift you up or tear you down..

My mornings are always better when shared with the kitties.

For 9 years I shared it with Brutus, my baby.  Memories I will forever cherish and always
hold close to my heart.  How I miss him, and how I miss our mornings, and every minute together.
  In came Shadow like a tornado.  For almost 4 months we had a very interesting routine.
Always started with his chicken and lots of movement.  I loved him for his
one of a kind personality and his fearlessness.  Shadow, so little.

Now my mornings are with Sniff Sniff.  He is as gentle and calm as was our Brutus.
 He is Sniff and we love him dearly.  With him in our lives I know I will be OK one day.

As Mondays go today is no exception.  New week.  New expectations and always
an opportunity to correct the "mistakes" we made yesterday-last week.

Soon it's time to go to Chicago.  The city we love, but for me it is bittersweet.  Chicago was
 where we went with Brutus.  Brutus as seen above used to also love basking in the sun
early in the mornings.  I loved brushing him and holding him.  Yes, now we will go
with Sniff and make more memories.  But it is still hard for me right now.
Arvid said to me, "I'm so ready to go to Chicago right now."

No matter what happens some memories can never be replaced.
We don't remember days we remember moments...
