Drag your thoughts away from your troubles... by the ears,
by the heels, or any other way you can manage it....
To this day I have not met a single person that can honestly state for a fact that they
worry about nothing. Does not matter what you do, what and how much you have
does not matter one bit, we all have things we worry about like it or not.
I am not any different from anyone. We have a good live. We do as we please, yet we
also worry about so many little things be it financial, family related does not matter
it causes us a bit of anxiety...just part of life and it's the way we handle it that makes
all the difference. Sometimes I handle it well, others it just overwhelms.
At this time of the year I agonized about leaving Brutus. This is the time of the
year we go to Norway and visit family. Now there is no Brutus to worry over. At least
with Sniff I don't have to worry about a paw acting up. When we usually go to Norway my
calendar for Brutus' treatments and medications was full. How I miss that kitty.
I can't say I won't worry about Sniff because knowing me I will. It will just be less
agonizing. The first 10 days he will be cared for by our neighbor and her 11 and 13
year old children. They already love him and come more often than they have to.
I'm not complaining. Sniff is happy. He loves everyone. The other day a man came to
install our blinds and Sniff was all over him. He was not afraid of the man's power tools
or any of the banging going on. The guy liked him so much that he wanted to "borrow"
him. Said he has a mouse in his home and maybe Sniff could catch it for him.
Wishing you all a very good day. I tell myself everyday that no matter how much I stress,
worry, cry or plead there is nothing I can do to change what happened to Brutus,
and to Shadow. Nothing. Anna reminds me that Sniff is a gift to us. A very
good one and I should not forget that. I don't Anna. I don't. I love
Sniff and am grateful everyday for him. Both Arvid and I are.
I remind myself to stop worrying about what can go wrong and to get
excited about what can go right. Have a wonderful day everyone.
Troubles are a lot like people - they grow bigger if you nurse them..
