I received this in my email - it's beautiful!  I hope you enjoy it and it touches you as much as it did me!  

My Princess is gone

Jul 22, 2009 - 40 comments

Daisy is now running in meadows in heaven.  The vet we have is amazing and was so kind.  She left quickly and we know there were spirits there to take her to heaven.  Thank you so much for all your prayers and love.  It has been overwhelming, the amount of love and kindness.  

I'm supposed to work today, but I don't think I can.  I can't stop crying.  But, I know she is not suffering and it was the right time.  You were all right, we would know when it was time.  


Update on Daisy

Jul 17, 2009 - 27 comments

When I got home from work last night I could tell Daisy was not as good as the day before and this morning she seemed a little less good.  When she saw I was awake she came and slept on my chest for a little bit while I pet her. She purred, but had very little energy.  She rested the length of her body along my body on top of me and rested her chin on my shoulder and closed her eyes.  She's gotten so little compared to the 17 lbs. she used to be.  She's not in discomfort - thankfully the pain meds are helping with that and the Pro Gut is keeping her tummy in check, but the tumor is starting to grow again (the prednisone helped reduce it a little for a bit there) and so I'm not sure how much longer we'll have her.  She is still eating, but not as much as she was a couple days ago.  

It was very sweet with her this morning.  One of my other girls, Abby, came up and laid on my other side and began grooming Daisy and they both purred.  It was the sweetest thing and then Abby just laid there next to Daisy on me for about 15 minutes.  I didn't want to move and go to work.  I wanted to stay just like that forever!  

Guys, this is breaking my heart and I don't know how it's possible to continue crying so much!  UGH!  

Thanks for all your support and kind words - it has helped me tremendously!  


Ten Commandments of Self-Esteem

Apr 20, 2009 - 5 comments

I'm reading a book entitled the "Ten Commandments of Self-Esteem," by Catherine Cardinal, Ph.D.   We sometimes need to be reminded to take care of ourselves too.  Our father in heaven loves us and wants us to have joy.  

I am not associated with this author, but I would recommend purchasing the book.  It's small and won't take long to get through it.  
1.  "Thou Shalt Not Consort With People Who Make Thee Feel Bad About Thyself"
2.  "Thou Shalt Cease Trying To Make Sense Out Of Crazy Behavior."
3.  "Thou Shalt Not Keep Company With Those More Dysfunctional Than Thyself"  
4.  "Trust Thy Body All The Days Of Thy Life (Thy Mind Doth Fornicate With Thee).
5.  "Thou Hast Permission At All Times To Say "NO," To Change Thy Mind, And To Express Thy True Feelings."
6.  "What Is Not Right For Thee Is Not Right For Thy Brethren."
7.  "Thou Shalt Not Give Beyond Thine Own Capacity."
8.  "What Thy Brethren Think Of Thee Matterest Naught."
9.  "Wherever Thou Art, Therein Also Is The Party."
10. "Thou Shalt Sing Thine Own Praises All The Days of Thy Life."

Some of these might seem self serving, but sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves first.  We cannot help others unless we are whole and healthy ourselves!  

Hugs & Love,
