Blest Sunday: We Honor And Salute You

Dezi:  MeOW  C’mon Raena, today’s a very special Blest Sunday.

          Raena:  Really sissy? What’s so special ‘bout today?

Dezi:  It’s Veteran’s Day, Raena. A day we take to ‘member the soldiers who fought, and many gave their lives so we could be free from tyranny. So many brave men, women and anipals gave their lives on distant shores, so that loved ones and even strangers like us could live our lives free from fear of wars in our own home. Me thinks we furget how things could be. We’ve been free fur so long that me thinks we sometimes take our Country’s greatness and freedoms fur granted.

 

Raena sits pretty in a patriotic memory frame

 

 

 

          Raena: I’s think you’re right sissy. It’s not purretty to think ‘bout young men, women and anipals lying in a trench on some foreign soil bleeding and dying. To think ‘bout them bein’ lonely and scared, and away from their families and loved ones; not knowin’ ifin they’ll ever see them again. To think ‘bout them swearin’ an oath to purrtect us…to die fur complete strangers. Soldiers who never gave a second thought to goin’ to bad places and facin’ bad people. Standing their ground and sayin’ “As long as I’m here, no one is going to hurt you”. 

 

Dezi with bowed head praying on the pet steps

 

 

 

Dezi:  So true Raena. There’s so much hate and discord in our Country right now. So many peeps sayin’ and doin’ things that would get them thrown into prison or killed in lesser Countries. Peeps tryin’ to take away the very freedoms that those soldiers bled and died for. The truth is, it’s a slap in the face, it’s like spittin’ on the graves of all those who bravely fought and lost their lives to secure those freedoms and make our Country great. It makes us so sad to hear ‘bout our vets bein’ treated badly.

          Raena:  I’s think all those soldiers who died to make America great are turnin’ over in their graves at some of the nonsense goin’ on right now, sissy. In our house, we bleed red white and blue. We honor our flag and each and every soldier who willingly defends/defended our Country and us from our enemies. We are so Blest to have been born in such an amazing Country. We are Blest to have a mommy who has taught us the price that was paid to make our Nation great.

Dezi:  Yes Raena, we are indeed Blest. We fank and salute each and every veteran and their families today and every day. We fank each and every soldier who serves us now. You may not know us, and we may not know your name, but we ask God to Bless and keep you each day. While you’re watchin’ over us, God is watchin’ over you. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. and we wanna fank you all fur bein’ Blessings in ours.

          Raena:  And, as we do each week, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. Purrlease ‘member to fanky fank our vets fur their service. Because of them and their sacrifice, you can sleep safely in your bed at night.

 

Till the next time…………………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Chatting Cats: Happy Independence Day

Hey everypawdy, it’s me, RaenaBelle. I’s been readin’ up on this Independence day that we’re celebratin’ today here in the U.S.. Ya’ know, what I’s read made me so purroud to be an American kitty, and even brought a few tears to mine’s eyes. We are so Blest to have had such wise fore fathers who recognized God had created them and gave them the freedom to choose how to live and govern. This great Country was born out of the desire to escape tyranny. 

 

Dezi lays in a box

 

 

 

          That’s right Raena. And, ‘stead of creatin’ a government with a king or a dictator, they decided our government should be one that’s ruled by the people it serves. Unfurtunately, some of the repurrsentatives that have been elected don’t always follow the wishes of the people they repurrsent. It’s a real shame when this happens. That bein’ meowed, just like any other employee, those repurrsentatives can be voted out and new ones voted in.

We thought it was a cool coincidence that we took this foto this

meownin’, July 4th and the foto nummer is 1776. We just had to post it.

 

 

 

Yep sissy, and I’s also learned that no where else can peeps talk so badly ‘bout their reps without dire consequences. Throughout history peeps have been jailed and even killed fur speakin’ out against their leaders/government. But here in the U.S., peeps are free to say whatever they want, and the news sure is takin’ advantage of that lately. The latest bein’ all this talk ‘bout refugees bein’ sepurrated from their families and held in cages. They wanna blame President Trump and say it’s all his fault. Thing is, none of this started with him, and those refugees are actually bein’ treated better now than they were unner furmer administrations. And unlike us anipals when we have no home, they’re not bein’ held in cages. That’s fanky fanks to President Trump. 

 

Dezi lays in a box licking her paw

 

 

 

 

          Those are good points Raena, but we’re not here to meow ‘bout pawlitics today. We’re here to celebrate the signin’ of the Declaration of Independence and our freedom from tyranny. We live in the greatest Country in this Universe. God Bless America!!!

 

Raena sits on perch looking back

 

 

 

You’re right sissy. Ifin anypawdy’s innerested in readin’ that amazin’ document that brought ‘bout this Country’s freedom, I’s think wikipedia breaks it down nicely here. It also gives some background and other innerestin’ infurmation ‘bout that time in our history. You know the one thing I’s didn’t find in mine’s research? I’s didn’t find that any of our fore fathers set off fireworks that day. So, I’s thinkin’ we oughtta tell everypawdy, no fireworks this year. What do you think sissy? 

 

          Me thinks that’s a great idea Raena. Unfurtunately, me doesn’t think anypawdy’s gonna pay attention to us. But, did you see the new toy mommy got us to keep our minds off those noisy boomers? It’s kind’a like those hexbugs we like so much but bigger. Mommy says she hopes it stays out from unner the oven and fridge a bit better.

Really sissy? Do we have to wait fur the boomers to start befur we can play with it? I’s wanna play with it now.

Happy Independence Day

 

 

 

          Guess you can ask mommy, Raena. But, me thinks we oughtta finish brekky furst. Anyways, we should wish everypawdy a Happy Independence day and God Bless America!!!

Happy Independence Day

 

 

 

Okay sissy. We’d like to remind everypawdy to stay safe and don’t furget that not all us aniplas enjoy the pawrties and festivities. You can check out our posts ‘bout makin’ your kitties and woofies happy while you celebrate here and here. We’re still gettin’ caught up, so we’ll be by to visit you all soon. God Bless America!!!

Blest Sunday: A Very Special Thank You

MeOW  C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday, and we have lots of things to meow ‘bout today. As you know, today is mommy’s birthday and Memorial day weekend. This month has just flown by.

          It sure has sissy. How old do ya’ think mommy is? Do ya’ reckon she’ll tell us this year? 

 

Dezi looks at camera while sitting on cat scratcher

 

 

 

All me knows Raena is that she’s old, as in wrinkles and gray hair and creakin’ bones old. Me’s not sure even she ‘members how old she is Raena. Ya’ know, they say the memory’s the furst thing to go. MOL 

 

Raena lays under pet cot from KH

 

 

 

          Oh sissy, I’s don’t think mommy would find that so funny. But, I’s do agree that mommy’s memory ain’t what it used to be. Anyways, I’s don’t really care how old she is, I’s just glad she’s our mommy. I’s do luvs her whole bunches. You know she always puts us furst. Y, she got some green papers fur her birthday and ended up spendin’ most of ‘em on us. Seems that Drs. Foster and Smith place had our Primal Freeze Dried Rabbit noms on sale fur half purrice. We don’t think we’ve ever seen ‘em that cheap anywhere. So, mommy used her special money to get us a few bags.

 

Birthday card from Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton

Fank you awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton.

 

 

 

 

Yep Raena, we do have a good mommy, that’s fur sure. We do wanna say a meowsy big Fank you to awnty Vonda, awnty Susan, awnty Anonymous, and awnty Ingrid, Pipo and Dalton fur mommy’s birthday money. Mommy cried a lot of happy tears this past week.

 

Dezi and Raena sniff the maranta from Ellen for mommy A's birthday

 

 

 

          She did sissy. And then she cried some more when she got the box from my kitty godmommy awnty Ellen. Mommy luvs exotic house plants. Rumor is that she used to have a whole house full. Anyways, one of her favorite plants is the maranta, better known as the purrayer plant cuz it closes it’s leaves at night to resemble praying hands. When mommy opened up the box from awnty Ellen, she saw the purrettiest purrple leaves pawppin’ out all over the place. ‘Course we had to check it out too. We could smell somethin’ emanatin’ from inside that box that really caught our attention. Sure nuff, awnty Ellen hadn’t furgotten ‘bout us. We got one of those furtastic pieces of silvervine toast each. I’s ‘member when Sammy modeled his fur their posty. That awnty Ellen is so clever. Who would’a thought ‘bout makin’ silvervine toast? 

 

Dezi and Raena shiff the maranta gift from ellen for Mommy A's birthday

 

 

 

Me sure did enjoy that toasty Raena. You’re right ‘bout awnty Ellen. She is so very talented. We luv all her Made with Luv goodies. You slobbered all over your toasty and then tried to steal me’s one. Hmmmpht That wasn’t happenin’. MOL 

 

Raena rolls around on the silvervine toast from Ellen

 

 

 

          You were s’posed to share sissy. ‘Stead, you flopped your floofy big hiney down on your toasty and hid it.

 

Dezi rolls around on silvervine toast from Ellen

Oh divine silvervine, me luvs you.

 

 

 

You had your own Raena, and me didn’t want slobber all over me’s toasty piece. Fank you soooooooooooooo much fur includin’ us awnty Ellen. The silvervine toast was a big hit. 

 

Raena plays with silvervine toast

 

 

 

          Sure nuff. Fanky fank you awnty Ellen. Sissy, can you x’plain a bit ‘bout Memorial day? Peeps keep sayin’ happy memorial day and I’s don’t know what’s so happy ‘bout it. 

 

Dezi plays with silvervine toast from Ellen

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me doesn’t get the happy pawrt either, me thinks peeps just don’t know what else to say. Memorial day is the day set aside to pay homage to those men, women and anipals that died while serving in the military. Me knows fur sure, that we ‘member them and their families every single day. Ifin not fur them, our country and way of life wouldn’t exist. The freedoms we have, wouldn’t exist. This country is great because of those willing to fight and die to make it so. No where else in this world has the freedoms and rights that the U.S. does. And shame on those who want to tear it down. The next time you complain about the government or somebody saying/posting something you don’t like or agree with, remember, you have the right to do that because someone died to make it so.

 

Raena plays with silvervine toast cat toy

 

 

 

          I’s sure am fanky fankful fur all those who gave their lives so we could live in such a pawsum country sissy. I’s so fanky fankful fur their families who suffered loss, fur the children who lost mothers or fathers to wars on distant shores. Sometimes peeps furget, the soldier serving and fighting should be at the top of our purrayer list, but their family serves as well. So, to all those soldiers who never came home, we salute you and purromiss not to take the freedoms your lives bought us fur granted.

Yep Raena, we are blest to have been born in the U.S. and mommy and me join you in saluting each and every soldier. Thank you fur your service and your sacrifice. And to all those Vets and currently serving, we fank you as well. God Bless America. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives.

          We’re also joinin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. We are so Blest and wanna fanky fank you all fur bein’ our furiends. We luvs you all bunches and bunches.

 

Me couldn’t have meowed it better Raena. C’mon, let’s go give mommy some more birthday cuddles. 

 

Till the next time…………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
