  The other day a man asked me what I thought was the best time of life. 
 "Why," I answered without a thought, "now"...Learn from yesterday, live for today,
 hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning....

I woke up at 4 am this morning just laying in bed  trying to go back to sleep but, the terrible 
nightmare that woke me up in the first place just kept playing over and over again in 
my head.  What a terrible way to wake up.... all scared, sweaty and breathing hard.  
Not a pleasant experience...but like someone said "I have had dreams, and I have
 had nightmares. I overcame the nightmares because of my dreams" 

As I turned on the bed I felt the soft fur of Sniff tucked in the middle of Arvid and I.
Brought a smile to my lips.   I woke up smiling and all nightmares were forgotten. 
There are few things in life more heartwarming  than to be welcomed by a cat.

Before it was Brutus.  Brutus who I miss everyday, but at the same time I know
 I need to move forward.  Missing Brutus is something that never goes away,
 but at the same time I have Arvid and Sniffer right next to me.

I look at them and I know that life is good.  We had our Brutus for  9 years.
They were very good years.  I will never get over him, but I love our Sniff and life goes on.
  My little Shadow was with us for just a brief time.  He showed us another side.  He showed
 us the wild side.  What a kitty he was.  I miss his crazy, playful ways.  Shadow...

It's been a good day here at home.  Quiet, peaceful and relaxing.  Hope yours has
 also been a good one so far.  Life is short, we have to make the most of it everyday.


Every man dies - Not every man really lives....Don't let the past steal 
your present...Don't let yesterday use up too much of today...
