It’s hard to believe, but Legend and Tsunami, my precious Maine Coons, are now five years old!
Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday we were anticipating their arrival!
To celebrate, I want to share the guest post I wrote in February 2012 for The Love of Love Extravaganza, which was hosted by author Terri Giuliano Long at The Art And Craft of Writing Creatively. During this event, over 50 authors were invited to write about different aspects of love and readers were asked to vote for their favorites. Thanks to those of you who voted, my essay received top honors!
So, without further adieu, here are the:
Lessons I’ve Learned From My Fur Angels
When I think of the biblical definition of love –
Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy or boast…
It keeps no record of wrongs.
It always protects, always trusts,
Always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails…
I am thankful that God, in His infinite wisdom, has blessed me with two fur angels who show me how to love more deeply and live more fully.
They have enriched my life in ways I cannot even begin to measure!
They greet me at the break of dawn and curl beside me as the moon dances across my pillow each night. I treasure their companionship.
When I leave, even for the shortest of outings, they greet me like a long lost prodigal. They’re into public displays of affection.
They comfort me when I’m sad.
They delight in my successes.
They listen without judgment.
They keep all my secrets.
They remind me to play…
To not take myself so seriously…
To find joy in little things…
To take daily naps!
They remind me that life is short, so make the most of the time you’ve been given.
Be a loyal friend.
Live without reservation.
Happy Birthday, my dear fur angels!
