Wednesday June 30th ~ 😻

It is not joy that makes us grateful; 
it is gratitude that makes us joyful...

 I feel good because I an doing something dear to me. 
 I an helping to spay and neuter the stray/homeless kitties 
that live in our area.  It is not just me.  It is a combined effort 
of many.  I am grateful to have received monetary help as well 
as help in other areas making the process a little easier. 🐈

The idea to spay and neuter the kitties came about
 one day early in the morning as I was walking.  Of course
 feeding them.  I met up with Sharon early one morning,
 she lives part time in the same complex as we do. As we 
talked we both wanted to do something for the cats. 

Sharon also fed/feeds them and it is mainly because
 of her that Marbles and MacGyver are so social.  Together 
with her doggie Charlie, they were here way before me. 

One day when we no longer live in Puerto Rico I will look
 back on these days as some of the most satisfying times in my life.  
The same as I look back at my time in Branson/Almost Home.
  As long as I can help, I am happy.  I need nothing in return.

My days are full and I am happy.  Sniff and I are
 doing good.  By the end of the day I am tired and I sleep
 very well.  Trapping kitties is not as easy as it sounds.  Many 
days I go out, but no luck.  Of course today, the one 
I want to trap on Tuesday did not show up.

My window of opportunity are Mondays and Tuesdays. 
 That gives them at least 3 night of boarding so that they can 
recover before being released.  I do not feel comfortable
 with them being released only after 2 days.  Yes, it 
cost a little more, but the kitty is also more healed.

Since there is not trapping of kitties toady, I plan to spend
 the day with my sister and niece.  Happy days are here.

Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude
 is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may 
consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts...
