Experts have long reported the persons who have pets, particularly cats are often less stressed. I guess that’s true unless you are truly one of those hoarder types that make the news because you have 300 cats running around the house amid debris and empty Chinese cartons using the bathtub and the washing machine as a litter boxes. Jean Claude and Koko of course are civilized with Koko showing early signs of being a classy babe. Both provided me with relief the other day after a long stressful time at work. JC of course was typical male and Koko at first was standoffish…but after a time both came to cuddle with me for a bit. A movement of peace…purring.

I saw this story and I thought I would share. I love that Ni Hao means hello in Chinese. Bienvenue means welcome in French. Cats often triumph in the face of outstanding odds against them. Today, let’s all take a little of Ni Hao’s spirit and conquer something that is holding us back.
My daughter CatzandAllDatz AKA , CCL(Crazy Cat Lady) has a beautiful front yard garden. As her mom, I am a bit anal when it comes to yards and I must admit I did not share CCL’s vision when early this summer she and a group of the neighborhood children planted the garden. To me the “garden” appeared to be a mishmash of mums, ground plants and flowers. Where, I would ask CCL (often), is the theme? Why didn’t you just put down grass? , I would say each time I paid a visit. Where , I would ask, is the structure? When, I would ask CCL, are you going to put down more mulch? Soon the rain came, the sun did its work and CCL had mulch put down in between the flowers and plants. Now a living piece of art graces my daughter’s front yard. Isn’t life sometimes like that? A series of unseemingly related events comes together with human inspiration and God’s touch and voila! Faith brings us bouquets.
