It's a new day!

Happy Thursday everyone!

                            This is what I saw when I walked into the lab this morning.


What a stunning sunrise! I take this as a sign from the universe that everything is going to be "brighter" from now on:)

Thank you for all your prayers and well-wishes for Junior. I'm happy to report that he is doing much better. He is eating, drinking, and playing on his own now so I think the worst is over:) Yet, I'm fearful that he could go downhill again. I don't know why I have this negative thought in the back of my head. Maybe just in case he does go to kitty heaven I can handle it better? I don't know. If you can explain that one to me I'm all ears:)

 Junior playing with his big bro!

Beat...and soaking in some sun after a good play session.

I have some fun adventures to share with you before Junior was sick but I'll save them for later. Life has been pretty basic : feed  Junior, clean, feed junior, homework, feed junior, bed...oh yes, I did eat in between those tasks but nothing blog-worthy.

I hope to be back with a vengeance soon enough but this week really took a lot out of me emotionally. I have this problem and its called " I CARE TOO MUCH." I cried on Ryan's shoulder, over the phone to my mom and family, and even when writing to you on the blog. My grandma (who has Alzheimer's) even asked how my "baby" was. She saw him when I brought him home to the coast with me and now she asks every time I see her. So sweet:) My heart is definitely worn on my sleeve and I cannot help but give 100% to something/someone that needs my help. Call me weak, call me whatever you want but I think this quote sums it all....

'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all. ~ Alfred Lord Tennyson


Thank you for your patience as I'm trying to figure this all out!
Stay tuned as later this afternoon I have an amazing giveaway for you!!!
XOXO

You can never care too much. If you love less, it might hurt less but lives is less enjoyable for sure. Enjoy the time you have with them, every moment is precious.

Love the kitties in the sun. And their adorable orange-ness.

I don't think anyone could ever call you weak. You, my friend, simply have a big heart! So glad Junior is on the mend. I'll keep hoping and praying he makes a full recovery and is healthy and strong again. So cute seeing him in all his fluffiness! Hang in there sweetie!

Yay for Junior! I'm sure he'll be fine now, but I know what you mean about being cautious in case anything happens....it's tough! I think Nemo is Junior's role model and he'll grow up big and strong just like him now :)

I am the same way, Melissa. I don't think it means that you are weak at all! Those who are able to give their hearts and give themselves fully are the people with the greatest strength. I truly believe that!

I'm sending love and best wishes to you and Junior. xoxo

Spectacular sunrise! How awesome you get to see that!

Caring too much can only be a good thing... at least for Karma. You are an amazing person. You know that already though. :)

I had the "care too much" problem too, which runs into the "taking things too personally" problem! I've tried to attack the "taking things to personally" problem, which seems to keep the "care too much" problem in check. Only when I hit my mid 30s was I able to do that though :-)

Glad to hear kitty witty is feeling better!
