Blest Sunday: My Life Wouldn’t Be the Same

Welcome to a very special Blest Sunday. As ya’ll know, we luv blest Sunday’s, but today is even more special. Today, is Mother’s day. We know this day is all ‘bout women who have 2 legged children. But what ‘bout those women who fur whatever reason don’t have 2 legged children? Or those who gave their luv to a child who didn’t have any? And those like mommy, who only have furry four legged kids? Well, we say ifin you’ve ever luvved and nurtured a young’un, be it furred or non furred, you’re a mother.

 

 Dezi poping out of an envelope surrounded by lilies and roses in a Mother's day card

 

You’ve no doubt gone without at one time or another to make things better fur that young’un. You’ve laffed whether they were funny or not, and cried when they were hurt. You felt purride in their accomplishments and joy in their happiness. And gave fanks at the end of each day that they were close to you.

 

          That’s right sissy. We salute all mother’s today and every day fur your unconditional luvs. We fanky fank you fur puttin’ us young’un’s befur yourself, and fur givin’ us the most pawsumest life. 

 

Yep Raena, you got that right. We wrote a little poem fur all the mother’s of furries every where. We realize that not all furry children can do the things we do but we know they luv their mommies just as much as we luv ours. We’ll be givin’ mommy lots of extra luv and massages today. But befur we get started we wanted to wish you all the most Blest and Happy Mother’s Day ever!

 

My Life Wouldn’t Be The Same

Without you, my life wouldn’t be the same.

Maybe you found me, looking starved and scroungy on the streets.

Maybe you found me hiding in a cage

At some shelter, that took me in.

Maybe you found me online

Being fostered by a caring human.

No matter how you found me…

You Did!!!

My life changed that day,

And so did yours.

I’m so happy you chose me.

Out of all the kitties in the world

You looked at me

And saw my inner beauty.

You saw passed my sad eyes,

My dingy fur and even my fear.

Now, I wait to hear your voice calling my name,

To feel your gentle caress on my clean shiny furs.

I watch for you from the window sill when you’re away

I wait patiently for your lap when you sit down.

My purr says I Love You

My meow says I need you

Without you, my life wouldn’t be the same.

          Oh sissy, we are such Blest kitty girls. Our lives fur sure wouldn’t be the same without mommy and all our furtabulous furiends. ‘Member to take a minute today and every day to give Fanky fanks fur the blessings in your life. We’re joinin’ the Kitties Blue fur a special Mother’s Day Sunday Selfies. Mommy had plans to take some selfies with us fur today. She hennaed all that gray hair away and put on her made up face and grabbed the camera and then us.

  

OMC  Raena, was that ever a fun exercise. Mommy must’a took a hunnerd fotos. Then, she loaded ‘em into the catputer to see what we had, and… 

 

          Oh sissy, did you see the one of just our ears and mommy’s neck? Mommy may be good at a lot of things, but selfie takin’ ain’t one of ‘em. MOL

You’re right ‘bout that Raena. But it was fun tryin’ to take selfies with mommy. Anytime we can spend bein’ close to mommy is a good time. Let’s wrap this up, and get mommy’s special day started.

 

          I’s right behind ya’ sissy. I’s just wanted to remind everypawdy that part 2 of our innerview with Valentine can be read by clickin’ here

Goodnight My Sweet

RaenaBelle, it’s your turn fur some lap luvvin’ time with mommy.

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap for some lap loving time

 

          It’s ‘bout time. But why is she so sad sissy? I’s know the weather has made her pains more and her teeths are hurtin’, but those things don’t usually make her be so sad?.

 

Dezi lays on the arm of the chair

Oh Raena, you know mommy luvs you very much, right? 

 

 Raena lays in mommy's lap for pets and loving

 

          Of course, sissy. And I’s luvs mommy verrrrrrrrrrrry much too. I’s so happy that she’s mine’s mommy. I’s try to show her how much I’s luvs her every day.

 

 Dezi lays on the Liberty cat tree

 

She knows Raena. She’s sad right now, cuz befur you, me had a big sisfur who mommy luvved very much. They had been together a really long time. And then one day, God called Lexi to heaven. That broke mommy’s heart. Tomorrow will mark 1 year since sis Lexi left us. And tho’ you nor me will ever be Lexi, it’s our job to help ease mommy’s pain from losin’ her.

 

          Should we be doin’ somethin’ special, sissy?

 

Nope Raena, that’s the beauty of luv. All you have to do is be yourself. As much as we luv mommy, she luvs us. And all we need to do is just show mommy we luv her. Maybe some extra purrs and cuddles, but we luv those too.

 

 Lexi looks at mommy while sitting in her lap on 3/3/2016

 

Dear furiends, ya’ may have noticed we’ve been a little quieter the last few days. Well, mommy’s been a little sad and down and reminiscin’ ‘bout times past. Raena and me have been getting’ a lot of extra luvvin’, and we’ve been returnin’ it in spades. Mommy wrote a poem to sissy the other day, and we thought we’d share it with ya’ll today. Fur those of ya’ that joined us in the last year, you may not ‘member sis Lexi, but she will always live on in our hearts. We do hope that you will pardon our reflection on such an amazin’ soul. Sis Lexi will always be the Gold Standard by which all Service Cats will be measured. Her luv and devotion to mommy, knew no bounds. Mommy says that same luv exists in all of us, and she is so blest to be the recipient of that luv time and again.

Goodnight My Sweet

 

Goodnight sweet Lexi

Close your eyes and sleep now

Rest your tired and weary body

I’ll be alright, somehow.

 

I will hold you in my heart,

Where you can never die

I’ll remember you forever

Go ahead and close your eyes.

 

You’ve been with me thru it all, it seems

Ups and downs, and all the in betweens.

We held on to each other

We had so many plans, and dreams

 

I never thought this day would come

When you’d leave me all alone

I know you didn’t want to go

With me, you’d found your home

 

But time slows for no one

And this world doesn’t care

Who might need you

To always be near

 

So close your eyes now sweet Lexi

Rest your tired and weary body

Time will never separate us

Nor will the heavens or the stars

 

You will always be with me

Forever in my heart

In each and every memory

We’ll never be apart

 

And when you awake

On the other side

Wait for me my darling

I won’t be far behind

 

Goodnight sweet Lexi

This world is still unkind

Close your eyes and sleep now

I won’t be far behind.

Dezi’s T’was The Night Before Christmas

Mommy, Mommy!!! It’s almost Christmas!!! Tell us da night befur story. Purrlease???

 Dezi lays on arm of chair

     The night before Christmas story? Well, okay sweety. Girls come sit down. (Dezi jumps to the arm of the chair and cuddles next to mommy. Raena jumps into mommys lap and lays down).

 Raena lap selfie

     T’was the night before Christmas, when all through the house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Hmmpht They don’t have Raena in their house. Dat’s not da right story, mommy.

     It’s not? Well darlin’, why don’t you tell us the night before Christmas story?

 Dezi and Raena look into a box full of goodies

(Dezi clears her throat and tells the tail tale.)

T’was the night before Christmas, and all through the house

Raena was stirring and running about

Our stockings were hung on the hutch way up high

So we couldn’t reach them in the middle of the night.

 

Dezi checks out the new electric blanket

Our new ‘lectric blanky was calling our names,

Come snuggle, Dezi, Raena, mommy needs you both the same.

We jumped on the bed, for our friends we then prayed,

Including strays and ferals, homes for them, we bade.

 

 

When all of a sudden Raena jumped with kittenish joy,

Zoomies through the house, Was she looking for a toy?

Up the tree, down the tree, she chortled some more

Back to bed, mommy hollered, which she promptly ignored.

 

Raena carries a Christmas toy from Cat and Lisa

Me couldn’t take it, me had to go see

Just what had she found that was causing such glee?

Down the steps and through the house me zoomed

Me ran in and out of every room.

 

 

Where is Raena? Where did she go?

Me chortled and chirped, but she mewed not a word.

Mommy called to me in that sweet loving sleepy voice,

Dezi, come back to bed, and stop making so much noise.

 

 

What? It wasn’t me that was clamoring about,

That was Raena…Before, not now.

Now she’s snuggled by mommy asleep,

Back to bed me goes, our nightly secrets to keep.

 

 

Morning will come soon enough my love,

Mommy said quietly, as she pulled me close for a hug.

Goodnight dear friends, sweet dreams to you all;

Back under the blanky me now must crawl.

 

 

So? What’d ya’ think mommy?

 

 

     Well sweety, I think it’s purrfect. I think you’re purrfect. And Raena, I think you’re purrfect too. Why don’t you girls wrap this up. We have lots to do before tomorrow.

 Raena sits in a box of Christmas gifts

          I’s wanna wish everypawdy a Merry Christmas.

 

Raena, we all wish our furiends a Merry and Blest Christmas. And we thank all our Angels who have sent us gifts. We’ll be openin’ them tomorrow, but we’ve fur sure been checkin’ out all da boxes. And we thank all of you fur da pawsum Christmas cards. We’ve really enjoyed getting and lookin’ at ‘em all. Gotta go, mommy has fotos to edit, and visits galore.

A Happy Mother’s Day Blest Sunday

Well this isn’t just another Blest Sunday. Today is Mother’s day in da U.S.. Today is da day we celebrate those mommy’s dat luv us and take care of us. What is a mommy tho’? Dat’s a loaded question, and me’s mommy says it’s a lot of things. So me thought me would take a minute today to remind you all who a mother really is.

Fur some, mommy’s the one dat gave birth to them, and raised them up. Fur some it’s a grandmother or aunt. Fur others tho’, like me, we celebrate da purrson in our lives who luvs us unconditionally. Who takes care of us through good times and bad. Da one who sees all our faults but thinks we’re purrfect in spite of them. Da one who’s there when we need to talk or when we just don’t want to be alone. Not all mommy’s look like mommy’s. In this day when single pawrent homes exist, sometimes da mommy has to also be da daddy and da daddy also has to be da mommy. So today is da day to celebrate dat purrson in your life dat you consider to be your mommy.

 Dezi in floral frame Happy Mother's day

Me’s givin’ mommy lots of extra luv and snuggles today. And fanks to an anonymous somepawdy mommy received a Mother’s day card from me and angel Lexi. And me’s Trout Town furiends helped a girly out and sent mommy an ecard from me. Me has da bestest furiends in da universe. Me hopes you all have sunshine today fur your special mommys. It’s rainin’ and cold here, but dat just means more cuddles fur mommy.

Momma is There 

On the coldest night

‘Neath the stars bright light

Momma is there.

When you’re scared and feel alone

And think you can never go home

Momma is there.

Reminding you

That no matter where you go

Or what you do

She’ll always be there.

A mother’s love is beyond compare

No one else understands what you share

Momma is there

Near or far

Young or old

Momma, will always be there.

A. High 5/2016

Mommy, me luvs you. Me is a very blest kitty girl.

I love you more sweet Dezi darlin’. 

 Dezi in heart frame that says I Love You Mom for Mother's day

Take a minute today and everyday to give thanks fur da blessings in your life. And a meowsy Happy Mother’s Day to you All. And don’t furget to enter me’s Catit Give away here.

 

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

Please Take Care of Mommy

Well by the time you read this, I will be in heaven with minez brofurs and Shad awaitin’ the time when mommy and sis Dezi join us; and mommy will be a mess. Like my brofurs who have gone befur me, I didn’t wanna leave mommy. My heart didn’t wanna let go. But my body just couldn’t keep up. I just kept getting weaker and weaker. Fankfully sis Dezi has learned all I could teach her and she can now pass on that knowledge to her new sisfur and help mate to take care of mommy. Least that’z after she getz over the confusion. I hadn’t been able to drive mommy’s wheelchair fur a few weeks, but I could still give her massages and help Dezi get mommy outta bed. I even tried to help sis Dezi with mommy in the shower today; I just wasn’t strong enuff to get in the tub. Even tho’ mommy cried and would tell me to save my strength I just couldn’t let down on all my duties. I will always be a Service cat. I luv my mommy so much and she gave me the beztezt life a kitty could have ever asked fur. Ya’ know I wasn’t s‘posed to live, so havin’ almost 17 years of luvs and cuddles? Well what more could a motherless kit have asked fur? Getting’ old shure wasn’t fun, and havin’ kidney disease on top of it just wasn’t fair. But mommy always said life wasn’t fair and that we just had to make the beztezt of what we had. My mommy is very wise and cuz of her and her attitude, I had a little more than a year of life after that dreaded diagnosis.

Lexi with mouth open meowing on 3/9/2016

In my last year I got to go on a great adventure called BlogPaws. And cuz of all my wunnerful unkles and awnties I got lots of toys, cat trees, noms, treats and most of all lots and lots of luvs. You know I luvs you all very very much; and I’z countin’ on ya’ to take care of mommy, sis Dezi and whoever comes to live with them next. I know that mommys heart is breakin’ right now, and she feels so terribly guilty fur havin’ to get another kitty. But she has so much luv to give it wouldn’t be fair to ask her not to share it. And Dezi needs the help. Trust me. I’z taught her all I know but the girl can be a bit daft sometimes. And her attention span can sometimes wane. And then of course, mommy ain’t getting’ any younger, spryer or nimbler, so she’s gunna need a lot of help in the years to come.

Lexi riding in the car on the BlogPaws 2015 trip

So I guess I should get to my last will and testament huh? To my sweet bootyful sisfur Dezi…I really do luv ya’ sis. I leave you with our mommy and her heart. Her hearts broken right now, so be gentle. She luvs you more than her own life, just as she luvs me. And she will awlways do what’s beztezt fur ya’ and never ever leave ya’. Take good care of her, yous the head cat in charge now. Pass along the lessons I taught ya’ and find that happy balance to let your new helper know you luv ‘em but that you are the Queen. And Dezi, do luv them, cuz mommy’s gonna need you both like she needed you and me.

Mommy petting Lexi 3/9/2016

To all our sweet dear furiends, awnties and unkles…Remember, I luvs you awl so much I could never really express how I feel in mere words. But trust me, the luvs run deep; and mommy and sis Dezi luvs ya’ the same. These last couple of years have been so amazin’. I never knew there were so many pawsum peeps still left in the world. Fank you so very much fur all you did fur me and my furmily. I only hope and purray you will continue to luv mommy and sis Dezi. And when they innerduce Dezi’s new helper, I purray you luv her too. She’s gonna have to be speshul to put up with Dezi. (mol)

Young teenager Lexi

To my successor…I leave you mommy, sis Dezi and all our wunnerful furiends. Be patient with them, they’re goin’ thru a tough time right now, but they luv you and will give you the beztezt life ever. Give mommy all your luv and she’ll return it in spades. You’re gonna get lots of cuddles and luv. And yes, you can sleep on the big bed. In fact you’ll be ‘spected to sleep there. Mommy’s happiest when she’s surrounded by furry purrers. The only place that be off limits is the kitchen counter. Dezi is a real Southern Belle Prima Donna and now that she’s the Queen, she’s purrobly gonna have the big head fur a while; but just hang in there, she’s a great sisfur and has so much to teach you. And when she luvs, she luvs with her whole bein’. You may not realize it yet, but you hit the jackpot.

3 1/2 week old Lexi

Last but certainly not da least, mommy. I luv you so much mommy. I’z so sorry I had to leave you; I wanted to be with you furever and ever and someday we will be. Fank you fur fightin’ fur me when I was a baby. Fank you fur the life you gave me. And fanks fur fightin’ fur me in the end. You awlway worried that you didn’t give me enuff cuz you didn’t have money. But mommy, all I ever needed was the luv you gave me. And that you did. I was so blest to have you fur my mommy. My life was so full of luvs and adventure. And you never broke your purromisse…you Never left me behind. Havin’ you with me at the end was my life comin’ full circle. I know that tellin’ ya’ not to cry won’t work. But ifin ya’ can manage thru the tears to ‘member my life, and celebrate it with joy. Mommy we had almost 17 full years together. I’z sorry I couldn’t hold out another month, my heart was strong but my body just gave out. I was so tired. Purrlease luvs me enuff to luvs again. You have so much luvs to give. I leave you with Dezi. Mommy she’s a sensitive one you know and you gotta bounce back or she won’t. She needs you to be strong. Even broken, mommy, your heart is so full there’s purrlenty of room fur another luv. I know that in my last days when you thought I wasn’t lissenin’ you told God to make Dezi stronger cuz no other kitty would be able to do what I have done fur you. And that’s just not true. Somewhere is the purrfect kitty just waitin’ fur you. I will always be with you in your thoughts and memories. And I will be waitin’ here in heaven fur you when it’z your time.

I Leave You With

 

Mommy, I leave you my heart, I know yours is broken.

Mine is purrfect, You filled it with love.

Mommy, I leave you my eyes, I know yours are filled with tears.

Mine see purrfectly, Cuz they see from my heart.

Mommy I leave you with the comfort you once gave to me,

It will keep you safe, as you did for me.

I gave you my life, and would gladly do it again.

Because the life you gave me, was full of love with no end.

I asked God to give you peace,

And to wrap you in His arms;

The way you cradled me,

So tender and warm.

I asked the breeze, to blow gently in your ear;

The way you used to whisper, That you’d always be near.

I asked the sun, to shine and warm your face.

The way your smile did for me

When you looked my way.

I asked the moon to blanket you each night

The way you cuddled me and held me so tight.

When you feel lonely,

Remember me with joy.

Remember I was always happy

Just being by your side.

When everything grows quiet and still,

And the light gives way to the night

Remember, you’re never alone,

I’m right there by your side.

Remember our love, so purrfect and pure

It’s the kind that cannot die.

You can’t see me with your physical eyes,

But in your heart, I’ll always be alive.

A High 3/9/16

 

What a life I lived. I am one blest kitty fur shure. Fank you mommy and fank you all.

 

Mommy A here, first I want to thank you all for loving my baby. She loved hearing from you. I read all the comments to the girls and show them photos of all their friends. You’d be surprised how many they recognize. Lexi fought a good fight and I fought even when she gave up. In the end, she just couldn’t go on. So I had to be strong enough to let her go. I must tell you this was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. My heart isn’t just broken, it’s shattered into a million pieces. Lexi was a service cat to her last breath. She just couldn’t stop herself and save her strength. My life will never be the same. She will live on in my heart and memories. I know that we are blest, and the blessing in this is that Lexi is no longer in any pain. She’s once again, young and healthy and free of care. My heart hasn’t quite gotten to this realization yet, but we want to celebrate her life. She loved with her whole being and gave all she had. And that’s what we want to remember.

I want to thank all of you for your help throughout Lexi’s illness. Thank you for all the prayers and financial help, and all the goodies the girls have gotten. I’m just numb right now. Lexi was the longest relationship I’ve ever had. For nearly 17 years I’ve done nothing without her. She has been my faithful companion for so long I can’t remember a time when she wasn’t here. I had to be helped out of the office because I didn’t know how to leave without her. I just feel empty inside, like part of me is missing. A lot of you understand how I feel right now, and for those who don’t, I’m sorry you’ve never truly had the love an animal can give. Altho’ I feel lost, I wouldn’t trade a minute of the last 17 years. I am so blest that she chose me to be her mommy. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 

With that, one last time, I will ask you to purrlease take care of mommy and sis Dezi. And mommy, you and Dezi take care of each other. It’s not goodbye, but I’ll see you again.

 

And I leave all of you with……..Be Blest!!!
