I find that the things that cause us the greatest amount of pain, are the things that teach us the most.  They are often the same things that are the hardest to understand in the beginning and sometimes right through to the very end; but we'll discover when we look back down the road after they have passed, that we can see those things and understand them alot more clearly...........

Tonight's entry is to thank the lovely people who have reached out to me since learning of my sister's cat Puddles' predicament.  To those who have offered their support, their condolences, and their kindness, I truly thank each and every one of you; no amount of words on this page could ever adequately express my heartfelt appreciation for your displays of caring. 

Unfortunately, there are also those who have disappointed me deeply with respect to this situation.  Since I am at a loss to understand their behaviour, I can only assume that their lives are more important to them than what is going on in the lives of those around them.  I hope for their sakes that the way in which they conduct themselves when it comes to others, will be worth it in the end.

I can't sign off this page without sharing some pictures that helped me to remember something good when I really needed it earlier today...................

My little friend Red (now know as Stan) and his roommate Lewis.  Thank you to Red's family for sending these today of all days.

"Today will never come again  Have I done any good in the world today, have I helped anyone in need?"
