We are happy you are here for Week 100 of the Friendly Fill-Ins! As always, you can find the fill-ins here and at 15andmeowing.com each Thursday. On Fridays, we post the link for sharing. Please link your post as directed.
We are well into the A-Z Blogging Challenge, which is very time-consuming. I understand there is just so much time in one’s schedule. Please know that even when I do not have time to comment, I do read everyone’s blogs. It is hard to keep up with everything, but I do my best. FurKids always come first, and they have been keeping me busy.
Furkids Update: Chloe Jo is holding her own. She will have more tests next week to evaluate the big picture. Her will is strong, but her little body is not. Clyde tires easily but is like a bull in a china shop when he can be. He is still a kitten and is all boy. He will be playing full throttle, and suddenly just flop down to rest. He’s got this. And, we have his back. Maggie P. gets a little slower, and sleepier each day. Both, the mass in her throat and her heart condition are issues that won’t go away. But, she is content and doing pretty well to function pain-free. We are very careful to offer a quality of life over quantity of years for all of them. We will do whatever they need, as long as they want it. Love does that.
Please join us for Sparks on Monday! The link is open Monday through Friday. You can add your Sparks anytime. My heartfelt thanks to those who participate. You are all inspirations. I always read each one multiple times. I have truly needed the positive energy lately. Thank you. I value and take each one to heart. Namasté.
Have a wonderful weekend. Be happy and healthy. Take care of You.
Here are my completed fill-ins:
1. Music is one of my elements of relaxation. I use it before meditation and again afterward. In general, I have some form of music on almost all of the time. The critters all love music too. They tend to respond to different kinds and have favourite bands, too. More on that in the future!
2. I journal to sort things out, rather than keep track of things. I have done it this way since I first began keeping a diary, at age eight. Some people use, “Dear Diary”. Mine was, “Dear God”. Now, it is just open writing, but I know God still reads it.
3. I have a hard time communicating with people who question everything that is said. It builds walls, not bridges. No one should have to qualify, justify, or clarify every single thing that is said. Doing this does not forge bonds through understanding. It pushes people apart through mistrust.
4. Faith is easy for me. I truly believe the grace of Faith is one of my gifts. As far back as I can remember, I have had a close relationship with God. I have not led a charmed life, by any means. But, I have never blamed Him. In fact, quite the opposite. He sustains me.
