Some Gifts for Today...

Some gifts for today...

This beautiful bloom greeted me in the sunbeam in my studio bay window this morning.

My hibiscus plant is about 4 years old and it spent the summer outside.

We brought it in last week when frost threatened.

I know it likes its sunny fall and winter window home.

I think it gave me this awesome gift today to let me know it !

And this was in the mail box this morning.

Check out the sender's label !!!!

Wrapped up inside was this gorgeous thing!


A silver bracelet, especially engraved

inside and out for me from my dear, dear Writer-Lady Friend !

She also wrote me this beautiful note.

Yup, I cried.

I feel so special, and so loved, and so seen for just who I am.

That is some gift !

I am telling you once again,

if you ever feel unsure about whether you are loved,

give some loving out into the world.

Love on someone else

and that Love will come back to you ten-fold.

There is no doubt in me that

Love is the answer

to every single question.

So David and I are putting some extra big love on this little lady today.

This is Singer.

She is twenty-one years old.

David is Singer's human,

and she puts up with rubs and loving from me when he isn't around.

Singer is in the process of leaving her body today,

and we are sitting in loving vigil for her

and celebrating the long, long life she has had,

and the joy and love that she has brought into the world.

I know my Big Black Cat, Georgie, will meet her on the other side

and show her the ropes and share his chair with her.

Hug your kitty cats and other sweet loved ones close today

in her honor, okay,

and take some time to celebrate those gifts.

Much love, beautiful Ones.

Hi, Kim! Patti sent you a fabulous gift! I love your new Rock Fairy bracelet! Wow!

And, I will definitely love, hold, hug, and rub on my kitties today in Singer's honor. It is so thoughtful of you to honor Singer and to hold vigil with Singer as she says goodbye.

Things always happen for a reason -- at the time they are meant to. As you sit vigil to hold Singer as she says goodbye to this life, Patti Digh reached out and sent more love into your life. It's a circle of love and as you reach out with love, love is reaching back in to you.

Thinking of you today sweet friend.

Oh Kim, big hug for Singer. We lost 2 of our elderly kitties this year and I still miss them so much. Sending you many warm thoughts.
And that bracelet is absolutely *the best.*

Such extreme emotions. Losing a family member, there are no words. Peace to Singer and to David. That bracelet rocks, Ms. Rock Fairy.

Blessings to Singer on her journey home. What an amazing life she's lived, being here for 21 years!! A big hug to David and you, knowing the space her leaving will make, may be a sad place for a while. joy filled memories, and much love,

I have tears in my eyes...bye bye my dear screaming friend Sing Sing.
Give her a kiss for me before she goes...so she remeber the crazy french woman who look for her in the street of Manchester, wearing her pj.

She had a wonderfull life with you guys. She was loved and you took good care of her. Ask her to say Bonjour for me to Georgie.
Pschttttt, Pschtttt as we usully talk to each other Sin-Sing and me, have a nice trip.

And bye the way...you are the only one who did not think that you are special...I know that from more than 15 years!
Love You
S.

Hearing from you is always one of my gifts. I'm thinking of you and David today; I lost my sweet furry longtime companion Chloe a year ago.

Love your fabulous bracelet, Kim. As Michelle always says -- she gets you! HCIT?

Prayers and hugs to Singer. What a handsome tuxedo kitty and what a great name. I hope his journey to the other side is gentle and easy.

good morning sunshine! there is so much i want to say or comment on here...i just got home last night from my extended trip after squam. the first thing to do this a.m. with a cup of coffee was to sit and read some of your blog...but this will take me days because i want to capture all of you that i can.
blessings to you and david on your sweet baby passing, i understand- as i had to let go of my 20 yr. old kitcat the week before squam. odd that we would've shared that too!
just want you to know that i cherish the time i had with you at squam...your generosity of friendship and spirit and everything "goodness" kept me warm in that cold, cold, place. : )
i miss you...wish we were eating waffles together right now!!!
xoxo

My sweet Kim.

You have grown and from what little I have observed on your Blog, you have made precious friends who love and support you.

We all need to be a part of something, needed, listened-to, but more important and what YOU do, is give back and that is good and it is positive.

R.I.P. Singer, mes sympathie David
et Kim

Hi friend! My hugs and thoughts to you :)

I've missed you this week!

Susan Sager Brown said...

I'm so sorry you will be losing Singer. My own beloved kitty, PT Barnum, is suffering from kidney failure at age 13. I am struggling with making a decision as to whether or not I should assist him in his process of leaving this world. I hope I will know when the time is right for him and not be selfish.....xoSusan
