How You Look At Life....

Before Alice got to Wonderland she had to fall.
It's not what you do.  It's how you do it.  It's not what you see. 
 It's how you see it. It's not how your life is.  It's how you live it.

He is not Brutus.  No one ever will nor can be Brutus, but little Sniffer is sure one 
gorgeous little kitty and in his own special way he is stealing our hearts little 
by little.  This look.  Just melts ones heart.  How can you not love him?

He's in his most favorite spot of all. Between Arvid's legs.  Little Sniff does not 
want much.  He just wants t be played with and loved.  That we do all day long.  His little
 face melts my heart and makes me realize that hopefully (maybe) one day I will give come to 
accept that Brutus died and that he will no longer be here.  I miss my Brutus so much.

Everyday Sniff makes us laugh and he sure brightens up our life.  I am still grieving
 for my Brutus, and I ache for Shadow, but with Sniff in our lives I know and I hope one day 
it will be better.  It will never be the same as it was with Brutus, but maybe that is also OK.

One of our outings yesterday took us to the duckies.  Arvid feeds them and I try to 
take as many pictures as possible.  We fed quite a few.  Some were just tiny little babies,
 while others that were just grazing on the grass were huge and all they wanted to do
 was bite us.  As Arvid tried to not get bitten I was busy taking pictures.  Yes, one 
of them almost got me, but it was fun.  They are very aggressive ducks.

A big part of living in the city is that we are able to walk to everything.  There is 
always something happening.  Yesterday was a pretty good day.  Felt and looked like 
summer again.  We are loving it and for now we plan to enjoy it for the remainder
 of the time we have left.  Who knows maybe this year we will come to Chicago and
 experience a winter.  At least that is what we say, but will see how cold it gets.

Wishing you all a very good day.  Enjoy summer for it will soon be over.  Remember, 
don't wait for the perfect moment.  Take the moment and make it perfect.

It's better to look back on life and say, "I can't believe I did that."
than to look back and say, "I wish I did that."...
