Goodbye Sara

These are our cats. The black cat is Schvartz and the gray cat is Sara.
Sara was given to me on Mother's Day 15 years ago next month by my son Tony and his wife Mica.
She passed away today and we will miss her so. She was a very shy kitty until we moved to Oregon. She really came to life here. She loved our dogs and she loved Schvartz. He loved her too as you can see here in this picture. He knows something is wrong and seems to have a sense of sadness about him today. He looks sort of lost. Rest in peace Sara. We will miss you. Goodbye my Sara.

Beyond the Garden Gate

I lie upon a cool green bed,
A tuft of clover at my head.
A sheet of sunshine covers me,
Shadowed by leaf tracery.

The water from the garden hose
Becomes a little brook that flows.
Wilted daisies nod my way
A "thank you" for the drink today.

Three sparrows in the willow tree
Blend into a melody.
A robin views me with surprise
As I barely touch two butterflies.

I did not know I had a date
With God beyond the garden gate.
No longer do I seem to be
An isolated etity.

Say a prayer for Petey

Petey has torn a ligament in his right knee and has to see a surgeon tomorrow. He will probably have to have surgery to repair it.
It has been really hard on all of us to keep him quiet so he doesn't tear it any more. He is so active as is his brother Sampson. Their spirits seem to be broken because Petey cannot go out to play and Sampson won't go without Petey. They just lay there looking so sad.
We have had to keep Petey sedated for the past 2 weeks to keep him quiet. So please say a prayer that Petey will recover real soon and be back out there with Sampson happy and healthy.
