Rant and Roll
There, I said it. I feel better now.
My new spot on Webster is still doing good, although I think a raccoon might have been visiting yesterday - the water dish was dirty. And the food all gone, although that is not an indicator, there are so many hungry cats around there. Little Red and Little Blackie both run to me every single morning now. Its so good to see them. I hold Little Red in my arms and rub his little face and tell him to be careful after I leave, and to eat his breakfast. Little Blackie is a bit scared still, he/she doesn't know me but trusts that I am going to leave food each day. I left a beautiful little hanging basket on the back steps for these kind people, just a small gesture to thank them, until I can get to a garden store and pick out something for their front porch. The hanging basket was actually left on my porch by Harold's Mom yesterday, along with a bag of cat food. I couldn't believe how kind it was of her to do. And she left me a note from Harold too! My my that Harold is a smart boy, he was able to spell most of the words he wrote correctly! I think Harold's mom read the post where I asked for any donations of flowers and pots for this kind couple that helped me that day that I was stressing after having lost my feeding spot for these kitties on Webster. I still want to do so much for them. I can't get over the kindness of strangers.
I catalog lucky events like this on a back page of my journal. I need a permanent inventory of inspiring moments; otherwise these small miracles can vaporize with a shift in mood. Regular prayer helps too. These random acts reignite my faith in the random goodness of other souls. When I feel my world is crashing, like I did the morning I lost that wonderful shelter to the Devil man, I can click the world back into focus, and flip my inner lights back on after a kind deed such as this.
Have a great dry day. No more rain!
