The temperature soared to 93 yesterday! My sweet and beloved kitty Maymay looked like a pancake on my bedroom carpet, like she was run over by a steam roller. She was laying in front of the oscillating fan trying to get cool. I looked at her a moment while she slept and thought “Yuk!” Who would want to sleep on a wool carpet on such a humid hot day?” So me being attentive, off I went to get a cotton sheet to lay on top of the carpet so she could be cooler. NO! She wanted nothing to do with it and went back to the hot carpet to sleep. Lesson one: Leave well enough alone!
So she went back to sleeping and I went back to reading my book. As I was trying to read, a thought, an observation, came screaming into my head snatching up my attention. I suddenly thought “Why don’t I put as much energy into taking care of myself and my needs like I do Maymay’s? I always try to make her happy but how often do I think to make myself happy and tended?” So lesson two is a biggie in learning to pay attention to my life and tend to it with love. Lesson Two: I MATTER!!!
Blessings and love ❤
