So this morning I happened to snag the inside corner while Sunshine was still PICKING through her food. There I sorta lolled against the shoji screen (well, the cabinet below the screen) and let my mind wander.
Some things came up like -
- I'ma missing Stella Rose Long and her crew. I know how hard life has been for her mommy and daddy lately. That sure happens A LOT. But selfishly, I loved loved LOVED reading about their adventures and their daddy's progress and setbacks. I bask in the warmth of their family as all of the furless kids grow up. I mean, one look at Macey's smile can make my day. BUT I understand the need to pull back. I only hope that SR and her mommy know I am here 24/7 to listen, nod my noggin in sympathy, and express my deepest love. And when they return to Blogville, as I hope they do, I will be here to welcome them back with open arms.
- The Rainbow Bridge is too full right now so my FURIENDS need to stop crossing over for a while. I really really love my FURIENDS. And when Winston Wilbur crossed the bridge, well a piece of my heart went with him. I need time to rebuild my heart. So listen - right now - Sit! STAY!
- That even on the stormiest of days there is still a ray of sunshine poking through AT SOME POINT. I am going to look for that sunshine and quit dwelling on the rain.
- That said, I am happy CALIFORNIA is getting rain again. It makes everything so much happier in SPRING. It also means the strawberries will be abundant come MAY. My mouth is watering already.
