Tropical Thursday In Puerto Rico ~

 Don't let what you can't do stop 
you from doing what you can do...

The island is full of stray dogs and cats.  Breaks my
heart to go anywhere and see all these hungry looking babies. 
 I carry cat food everywhere we go, but there are so many it's
 difficult to keep up with.  The other day as we went for a walk
 we encountered this beauty.  Starving.  I had food for her,
 but what happens tomorrow and every other day?

It's also very strange to see little kids with masks.  They 
adapt easier than I think I have to using a mask. Imagine
 a walk on the beach and you see everyone with masks. Weird.
 Even weirder because it is the new norm we are living.

People heading out for an outing in the water.  Wearing a mask?
  Never thought I would be witnessing anything like this.

Sniff dislikes the mask so much that he destroys them
 whenever he can.  He sees a mask, he eats the strings.  Simple
 as that. We keep them hidden, but yesterday he found it.

Yesterday was a first for me since being with Arvid. 
 He actually helped put up some Christmas decorations
 with Kimsy. I was shocked, but happy.

 Even he, Arvid was surprised because this morning he said
 to me, "I don't remember ever doing anything Christmas."
  That's pretty sad actually, but here in Puerto Rico there
 has been many first times, and hopefully more to come.

Yesterday was a very good day.  Happy and grateful.
The best moments of my life don't make it to social media.

Although the world is full of suffering,
 it is full also of the overcoming of it...
