Sunday Pause (Paws): Just Be (and Thank You)

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and just be.

In the United States people are celebrating Memorial Day this weekend. My family was going to celebrate some birthdays but now it looks like we’ll be waiting until next weekend. So instead I think we’ll hang out, go for a walk, enjoy the beautiful weather, and take time to…just be.

What are your plans?

Whatever you’re celebrating, wherever you are
Be sure to relax and set your mind free
Set the busy schedule aside on this day
And give yourself time to just be, “JUST BE”

Animals Are Feeling Beings Too

Sunday Pause (Paws): Trying To Fit In

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and do some thinking.

I‘m not sure how long you have been blogging but have you ever noticed how sometimes you seem to have a lot of interaction (or Likes) on your posts and sometimes hardly at all? When it is hardly at all it makes you start to wonder why. Is it that your blogging community is busy and just not seeing your posts or maybe they just don’t like that particular post?

Some of you have been with me for a while on this blogging journey. You know that I have changed things along the way as probably many of us have. Lately it kind of seems like I am not getting a lot of interaction. It made me start wondering if it could be because I have been using cartoon images a lot more often and not writing as much. I started thinking about that and if I should try to change my posts. But I realized I really don’t want to, at least not right now, because I am finding joy in creating the cartoons.

Thinking about all of this made me also think about how we worry about our popularity or if we are fitting in. Not just with social media but with everything. But is that really what matters?

Moms Are The Best

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and wish all the moms out there a wonderful day!

I chose this picture of my mom because it really does truly portray her. She can be so silly and that is what we love about her!

My mom is a courageous, strong, beautiful, independent woman. She has been through so much…divorce, cancer, and even the death of her own child (just to name a few). Yet she has always been an example of how in tough times you press on. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): Hello “Be Kind To Animals” Week

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and welcome the first day of “Be Kind To Animals Week”.

I wanted to honor this recognition of animals with this Sunday’s post. But we at AAFBT think you should always be kind to animals. In fact we now have a mission statement and here is Cino as “Animal Paladin” to introduce it to you…

I like to say to help animals it takes me, it takes you, it takes WE and that is so true. Here is a great example. A coworker of mine was dropping her son off at school and there on the edge of the sidewalk was a little duck in her words “crying.” He was laying on his side crying and shivering 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. 🎈

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.

Sunday Pause (Paws): AWWW

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, open your mouth and let out an “AWWW.”

I‘m going to keep this post short mostly because the picture says it all. But also because I am writing this late at night and I have been busy with other things (nothing like waiting until the last minute to get your taxes done). It was a busy week at work, we had a crazy spring winter storm, and, as you know, my mom has been sick. Calgon take me away!

But then you see a picture like this and you can’t help but forget about all of that stuff for a minute and say “AWWW.”
