Blest Sunday: A Blogovesary Full of Blessings: 5 Years

MeOW-llo Furiends. C’mon Raena, it’s Blest Sunday. Me’s sure you’ve got some Blessings to count today, right?

          Kittens!!! Is it already Blest Sunday? Time sure does fly by. but you’re right, I’s do have many Blessings to be fanky fankful fur this week.  

 

 

 

 

Raena sits in box looking up

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, time sure is movin’ by fast. It’s hard to believe that we’re already almost a full 2 months into the new year. It’s been slow goin’ ‘round here. Mommy’s tryin’ hard to get things packed up, but she can’t reach some of the things that are up high and down low isn’t much better.   

 

          Ain’t that the truth sissy. Y, just the other day she was tryin’ to pack up a cabinet and fell flat on her bee-hind. I’s didn’t even know we had that stuffs. There was a pan big enuff fur me to curl up in and take a nap. Guess mommy didn’t need to use it, so it got put in the cabinet of utter darkness. 

 

Raena stands in box looking upMeOW Now that’s a pan mommy.

 

 

 

The cabinet of utter darkness? Where did you get that from?  

 

          Well, you know, mommy never opens those cabinet doors, so it’s always dark in there. The cabinet of utter darkness, see?   

 

Sometimes Raena, your logic scares me. But, me guesses it does kind’a make sense. Anyways, did you know that our Blogoversary is tomorrow? That’s right, we’ve been blogging fur 5 years. So much has changed in that time. When we started out, sis Lexi was still with us. We call our blog a happy accident cuz we didn’t have a clue what we were doin’ back then.

          And we still don’t sissy…at least some days. But, it is really cool to think ‘bout sharin’ our lives and makin’ so many amazin’ furiends in that time.  

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, we could’ve never ‘magined how our lives would change when we wrote our furst posty. Back then we used heavy cat speak. Not like our posty’s today that have occasional words and a more southern connotation. Cuz of our blog and amazin’ furiends, we got to attend BlogPaws in Nashville. We’ll always believe that trip is what gave us extra time with sis Lexi. She luvved to travel and that trip put the spring back in her step fur months. She was a huge Blessing in me’s life and mommy’s. We miss her so much.

          She sounds so amazin’ sissy. I’s wish I’s could have known her.  

 

She was Raena. But, she had to go away to make room fur you. Someday you’ll meet her when we all meet again in heaven. Till then, we have her memory to guide us and help comfort us. And of course, we can’t furget when we introduced you to the world. You sure were a scroungy stinky little thing.

          It wasn’t like I’s could help it sissy. Fanky fankfully, mommy cleaned me up and made me all purretty as soon as we got settled in. I’s had never seen so many toys or had so much room to run in. I’s was in mine’s own little kitty heaven. More ‘purrtantly, I’s felt safe fur the furst time in mine’s short life. It was amazin’. That’s when I’s learned ‘bout bein’ Blest. I’s had a luvvin’ furever mommy, a gawjus sisfur, and more toys than I’s could play with at one time. I’s had no idea that day, how many pawsum furiends I’s was gonna have. To be luvved is somethin’ everypawdy should get to feel at least once in their lifetime.

Yeah Raena, me couldn’t believe mommy brought you home, but you turned out not to be that bad. Altho’, you do still get on me’s nerves every once in a while. Anyways, cuz you were gonna need trainin’ we decided to start our Service Cat posty’s. We thought we’d post a few Trainin’ stories and that would be that. But, they were so pawpular that they evolved to encompass all kinds of topics from Trainin’ Tips to Nutrition. So, we infurmally changed the name to Training Tips and Everything Feline. That series is goin’ on 3 years now.

          Don’t furget the Blessing Train sissy. That’s been so much fun. We just had our 2nd annual Blessing Train event and it was better than the furst. I’s can’t wait fur our next one.

You’re right Raena. It’s always fun when our furiends purrticipate in our events. And of course, we can never furget ‘bout Blest Sunday. It’s been a pawrt of our blog in some form from the beginning. We’ve had more than our share of bad times, but no matter what may be goin’ on ‘round us, we knew we always wanted to have a day where we could share our Blessings and Give Thanks fur those Blessings.   

 

          I’s luvs Blest Sundays sissy. I’s fanky fank God every day fur mommy and you and all our furiends. I’s so very fanky fankful fur mine’s life.

Thank you fur bein’ Blessings in our lives. We hop you’ve enjoyed seein’ some of our flashback fotos.   

 

          I’s sure did sissy. I’s gonna link us up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and then take a short nap befur mommy starts packin’ again.

No matter what you may be goin’ thru, things will get better…”it can’t rain all the time”. Thank you fur bein’ with us fur the past 5 years. Here’s to many many more.

Blest Sunday: It’s Our 4th Blogoversary & The Blessings Continue

Meweek, Mew, Mew, (Dezi dances around and runs back and forth from the kitchen to her meal mat in the living room) hurry with that brekky mommy, we’ve gotta write our Blest Sunday posty. It’s our 4th Blogoversary!!! And what better day to celebrate it than Blest Sunday. Don’t put too much gravy in Raena’s, you know she’ll throw it all up ifin ya’ do. 

 

 Dezi, Raena and Lexi in a pink circled frame with a heart

 

 

 

          (Raena jumps down from the wheelchair and runs right into Dezi re-entering the kitchen) Sissy…  

 

Hisssssssss…Watch where you’re goin’, Raena!!!

          I’s not the one runnin’, sissy, you are. Maybe, you should watch where you’re goin’. I’s want the exact same brekky as you. The more gravy the better. (Raena rubs against the wheelchair and one of mommy’s legs) Meowwwwww  Mommy, I’s want the same brekky as sissy. I’s a big girly now. I’s even got to go the the Cat Scouts Valentine’s day dance. By the way sissy, what’s a Blogoversary? 

 

 #Dezi laying in chair

 

 

 

Taggin’ along to a dance doesn’t make you all grown up, Raena. Now leave mommy alone so she can fix our brekky. Haven’t you figgered out by now the more we bug her the longer it takes to get fed? (Dezi meows as she runs back to her food mat. Then she hears the coffee pot beep and runs back to the kitchen, where she watches mommy get her cup of coffee and head for the living room to set it down. Dezi follows mommy back to the kitchen where she picks up the breakfast plates and heads back to the living room. Dezi runs ahead excitedly) Meweeeeeek, Mew, Mew. Here mommy, here. Put me’s brekky right here. (Turns to Raena and meows) We’ve been bloggin’ since February of 2014, Raena. Mommy had just got her furst real catputer and knew nuffin’ ‘bout the world of bloggin’ or the innernet. We actually created a blog totally by accident. But, it’s been one of the greatest things that ever happened to us. We’ve met so many amazin’ furiends, both human and anipal. We can’t ‘magine what our lives would be like without all of you in it. We’ve come so far from our furst posty and our second, both on the same day to innerduce ouselves. We didn’t have a clue ‘bout what bloggin’ was or how to edit fotos, or even what to write ‘bout.

 

          (Raena runs to her food mat in the living room and looks back for mommy.) MeOWwww I’s so hungry. Put mine’s plate right here mommy, hurry. (Mommy parks the wheelchair and sits in the sitting chair and opens a bag of chocolate chip mini muffins. Raena looks up from her plate and walks over to sniff the bag in mommy’s hand. She goes back to “cover” her plate and then jumps in mommy’s lap.) I’s want some of that mommy…Why? Why can’t I’s have a bite? A little chocolate can’t pawssibly hurt me. (Looking down at Dezi, Raena meows) Well look at us now sissy. I’s can’t ‘magine you ever had a hard time comin’ up with somethin’ to meow ‘bout.

 

Lexi lays in wheelchair and looks up

 

 

 

Ya’ never know Raena. Chocolate isn’t good fur us kitties or doggies. Besides, we’ve got great food, you wouldn’t like those muffins anyways. But, it sure was nice of awnty Cindy and angel Maggie Meme to send it to mommy. She luvs those little muffins and brownie bites. (Thinks about what Raena just meowed) Me’s not sure ifin you’re givin’ me a compliment or bein’ mean Raena, but me’s gonna choose to believe you’re bein’ nice. Back then the blog was mostly me’s meows; sis Lexi had facebook and me had the blog. It’s really nuffin’ like it used to be. But, mommy says that’s a good thing. We have to evolve and learn or we’ll fade away into the lost bytes and bits of the innernets. 

 

Raena lays beside box

 

 

 

          I’s sure don’t wanna fade away sissy. I’s very fanky fankful you’re willin’ to share your bloggy with me; and all your furiends who accepted me and luvved me when I’s came here. Happy Blogoversary sissy, I’s hope we have lots more. By the way, did you see those Hawaiin rolls? Mommy can’t get enuff of those things. They are purretty tasty. I’s got to try a little bite once. I’s don’t know what a croissant is, but mommy seemed really happy to see those too. Fanky fank ya’ fur sendin’ mommy a Valentine’s day treat. We are so Blest.

That we are Raena. Another blessin’ we got this week was help with mommy’s leg ouchie. Some of ya’ may ‘member that mommy fell right befur Christmas and hurt her leg purretty bad. It got to hurtin’ somethin’ fierce last week, so we asked ifin anypawdy had any suggestions on how to treat it. Mommy’s V E T had told her to keep puttin’ that triple antibiotic cream on it and keep it wrapped. But, it didn’t seem to be gettin’ any better. And cuz mommy had to use a few bandaid type bandages cuz she ran out of gauze pads, she had some new sores where the sticky had been. Mommy’s ‘lergic to bandage sticky, and we’re thinkin’ triple antibiotic cream. As always, our pawsum furiends purrayed and gave us some great ideas fur treatin’ her ouchie. Warning: Below are purrgressive fotos of mommy’s ouchie. Ifin ya’ have a weak tummy, scroll quick, there’s only 3 and we made them small.

          Sure ‘nuff, sissy. Somepawdy suggested she put Manuka honey on it. She just happened to have some of that cuz she had bought it fur your sis Lexi. I’s thought she looked kind’a crazy slatherin’ honey on her leg, but it really seemed to help, a lot. That honey took the heat and the soreness outta mommy’s ouchie really quick. 

 

It even looks better too, Raena. And fanks to awnty Cindy fur sendin’ some green papers, mommy got some more gauze pads and is lookin’ into somethin’ called colloidal silver.

 

 Raena lays on Liberty cat tree house

 

 

 

          And the blessings don’t stop there, sissy. Mommy’s gonna be gettin’ her new fake teethies on Tuesday. We can’t hardly wait. I’s hopin’ we get to pick up some extra treats while we’re in Ardmore. Maybe I’s can meow mommy into gettin’ us some bacon or somethin’. What a week of blessings we’ve had. Good furiends, good food and lots of luvs…What more could a kitty girl ask fur.

 

Dezi lays in mommy's lap getting loving,selfie

 

 

 

And, A Blogoversary!!! Absolutely Nuffin’ Raena, we’ve got everythin’ we need. What Blest lives we have. We’d like to remind everypawdy to take a minute today and every day to give thanks fur the Blessings in your life. And fank you all fur visitin’ us, commentin’ on our postys and mostly fur just bein’ the bestest extended furmily in the universe. We luv you all very much. 

 

 Raena gets loving while laying in mommy's lap and squints for the camera

 

 

 

          Don’t furget the Sunday Selfies, sissy. There’s been a lot of distractions and things mommy’s had to deal with these past couple of weeks, so we’re purretty behind in our visits to all our furiends. We’re really sorry we’ve not been by to see ya’, but we hope to get caught up soon. Purrlease bear with us, (Raena and Dezi look over at mommy) we purromise to visit soon. And here’s to elbenty billion more Blogoversaries.

 

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