Do Something

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax. But not for too long because the world needs you, me, WE.

I heard a song recently called “DO SOMETHING” and thought it was perfect not only because that is what I am doing for animals and encouraging others to, but also it seems perfect for the times.

I wrote a poem a while back in this image below and it has the same message the song does. We wonder why God isn’t doing anything. His reply is that he is. He’s waiting for us.

I’ve Got Chills, They’re Multiplying

Hello all.

This post is just for fun! It doesn’t have anything to do with animals other than mine is going to be giving me funny looks all night as I sing & dance along to GREASE. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ•บ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽถ

This was one of my favorite movies when I was younger. Now I see it actually doesn’t have the best message but the music is alot of fun!

I‘ve got chills, they’re multiplying! How about you? Any of you fans and watching tonight?

Here is the trailer…

Sunday Pause (Paws): Smile When You Think You Can’t

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and smile.๐Ÿ˜

I didn’t get a chance to write a post yesterday so I thought I might wind up skipping this Sunday. But when I woke up this morning I had a song in my head and it made me smile. I decided this song would be great to share.

The song is about smiling even though “stuff” is happening. There is some “stuff” that could bring me down a little bit this weekend…if I let them. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Happy Birthday To You

It’s Sunday ! Time to kick back, relax, and wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to those in heaven.

Losing a loved one…nothing is harder.

I just got together with a friend who lost her dog that she had for 15 1/2 years. I often hear from people that they know I will understand. It’s sad that not everyone can understand how a pet is family and losing them can be as devastating as the loss of a human.

This coming Tuesday is my sister’s birthday. It will be her second birthday in heaven. She would have been 55 years old. I still have to pinch myself and ask if she is really gone. But instead of feeling overwhelmed by sadness, I am going to celebrate her.

The image I made below is for all of us celebrating a loved ones (human and animal) birthday in heaven. ๐ŸŽˆ

Sunday Pause (Paws): It’s The Best News Ever

It’s Sunday…Easter Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and receive not good news…but the BEST NEWS EVER.

Easter is celebrated with egg hunts and sharing baskets filled with goodies. But this isn’t what Easter is about. It’s not about a rabbit, it’s about what Jesus did for us.

Celebrating Another Birthday

(Cartoon image of me and Cino)

I‘ve gotten many birthday wishes, gifs, a peanut butter pie, and even songs shared with me. The best was my niece sharing the “The Beatles Birthday Song” with me along with a memory of her mom playing that song for her and her brothers every year on their birthday. (Her mom is my sister that passed away unexpectedly almost two years ago). Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Beautiful Soul

It’s Sunday, time to kick back, relax, and remember.

I wanted to dedicate this post to remembering those who have passed. Death is never easy for those left behind. When you lose someone close to you, you are never the same. I shared the poem below shortly after my sister passed away last year. I thought it was fitting to share it again now. Her birthday is next week, so I have been thinking a lot about her lately.

ยฉAnimals Are Feeling Beings Too

Even when it’s not someone you personally know, but the loss of a super star, it can be devastating. The following are pictures I took when I visited Paisley Park after Prince passed away last year (April 21st, 2017). It was so much more sparse than what it had been when the news first got out that he was gone. By the time I went most of it had blown away, the flowers had died, and so on.ย  Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): A Street Cat Named Bob

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back and relax!

A great way to relax is to watch a movie! Have you seen the movie “A Street Cat Named Bob?” I actually haven’t, but now that I know about it, I will probably watch it sometime.

This Sunday’s post is a guest post from the blog idealizeblog. The YouTube videos and all of the words in the italicized section are part of the guest post.

This Tuesday Tale: It’s My Birthday

Today is my birthday so I thought I would do a little bit different kind of tale, a tale about me. This will be my first “Tuesday Tale” about a human. But hey, as I always say, we humans and animals are all living, feeling beings…so why not?!

At church this past Sunday, the sermon was about fear. In this sermon and the one before the topic of being frozen in life was spoken about. When you’re fearful, you become frozen. They go hand in hand.

What does this have to do with me? Well, here I am another year older and I have been thinking a lot about my life, especially the last few years. Continue reading
