Blest Sunday: The Blessing Train Is Coming

MeOW  C’mon RaenaBelle, it’s Blest Sunday. Time to count our Blessings. And, since it’s also December, me thought it would be pawsum to bring back the Blessing Train fur our countdown to Christmas. Our sweet furiend Valentine said he would join us. Last year we counted down 12 days of Christmas; but there’s so much goin’ on ‘round the blogospere and the real world so me thought this year we would just run the train on Sundays. And…

          Yeah sissy, I’s so x’cited. Anypawdy who wants to join up can post any days they wish, and each Sunday, we’ll add their car to ours. I’s would luvs it ifin we could make the Blessing Train go ‘round the world.

Me too Raena. To join the Blessing Train, all you have to do is post your Blessings. You know, whatever you’re grateful/Thankful fur and leave the link to your posty in the comments of our Blest Sunday postys. You can post  as many Blessings as you want or just once this month. And each Sunday, we’ll post your link along with your Blessing Train car so others can enjoy the ride.  You’ll find your box car below. You can decorate it any way you want. You may also take any of the train fotos you’d like fur your own posty.

          Oh sissy, this is gonna be so much fun. 

 

Yep Raena, me luvs it when our furiends get together to celebrate. Meowin’ of celebrations, we oughtta celebrate the fact that mommy’s feelin’ better. She even helped me with me’s audition tape fur the cat scouts choir. It’s a wonder we got anythin’ done what with you all up in her face and stuffs. 

 

          I’s just wanted to be in the recordin’ too sissy. Ya’ll looked so funny with your headfones on singin’ along to nuffin’. Least it sounded like nuffin’ from where I’s sat. I’s finally got close enuff to the headfones to hear the music.  It was kind’a like one of those recordin’ studios I’s see on tv, x’cept it was right here on the ranch (our apartment).

When was that Raena? When you head butted the microphone or bit mommy’s nose? Anyways, in spite of all the furry inneruptions, we got me’s audition finished. We even had enuff time to check out some tracks fur mommy to record. Last time, we got some requests fur mommy to sing some country songs. Long ago in another life, mommy sang with several different bands. Things have changed a lot since then. But, we’ve picked out a few songs that we think everypawdy will like and we’re even addin’ a fun Christmas song. We’ll be postin’ those fur ya’ soon. 

 

          Does that mean more singin’ with the funny headfones sissy?

Me isn’t sure how mommy’s gonna do it yet Raena, but whatever she does, it’s bound to fun. Me will say, mommy’s old country, but ifin ya’ have any requests, she’ll try to sing ‘em; just let us know in the comments below. 

 

          Mommy can sing anythin’, sissy. I’s luvs it when she sings to us. It makes me feel all warm and purry inside.  

 

Me too Raena. Well, me thinks we oughtta get the Blessing Train fired up. We also wanna fank awnty Susan fur her gifty. And me wants to fank all of you who sent green papers fur me’s Birthday/Gotchaday. Mommy says me’s gift should be here tomorrow. Me can’t hardly wait.

          Me either sissy. But, that’s not our Blessing fur the Train this week. Today, we’re givin’ Fanks fur all our pawsum furiends. All of you have made our lives so much better. 

 

Red Box CarHere’s a box car fur you to take and decorate any way you wish to add to

your posty. We’ll then add your boxcar to the train fur next week.

 

 

 

Yep Raena, furiends are one of the greatest gifts one can have. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives and Thank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.

Blest Sunday: Chasing The Wilds

Dezi:  MeOW  C’mon RaenaBelle, It’s Blest Sunday. Me wants to count me’s Blessings befur the storms start again.

          Raena:  I’s comin’ sissy. Ya’ know, it would really be a Blessing to mommy ifin you didn’t spend so much time unner the bed. (Raena meows sarcastically) I’s know, you’re not hidin’, you’re lookin’ fur intruders. But, I’s don’t think any intruders could have slipped by you. You’ve been unner the bed most of the week.

Dezi:  Was not, Raena. Me also spent time on the stool unner the vanity by the bed, and unner the dinin’ room table. Me even spent some time in mommy’s lap. And, somewhere durin’ one of those times we did get an intruder. You know, that fly we’ve been chasin’ fur two days?.

Come back here fly!!!

 

 

 

          Raena:  I’s think he’s multiplyin’ sissy. I’s know I’s caught him once already. He tasted kind’a nasty. And I’s accidentally scratched mommy when I’s clasped him t’ween mine’s fluffy paws. 

 

Dezi:   Yep Raena, me heard. You’re a dangerous hunter. You’re all over the place. It’s like you’re chasin’ the wilds. You even jumped up on the kitchen counter. You know we’re not allowed up there. 

 

          Raena:   I’s was tryin’ to ketch the fly sissy. It was botherin’ mommy and you were nowhere in sight. So, it was totally up to me to purrtect her. Flies are wild, aren’t they?

 

Dezi lays on scratcher

 

 

 

Dezi:  Purrlease Raena, like that fly was gonna hurt mommy. What… 

 

          Raena:  It might have sissy. She kept waving her hands thru the air and makin’ spittin’ sounds. It could’a flown in her mouth. So, I’s had to keep her safe. Ifin you hadn’t been hidin’ out you might’ve known what a pest he was bein’. Anyways, I’s thought we were gonna count our Blessings. Let’s get on with it, I’s wanna go finish mine’s brekky. 

 

Dezi:  Meowin’ of food Raena, did you know mommy signed us up fur some 30 day challenge?

          Raena:  Yep sissy, I’s heard that. I’s hope it’s a challenge we’ll like. You know, we’re really Blest to be able to do things like this. Not every kitty in the world gets to try out new stuffs and toys and noms. That’s one of my fanky fankfuls this week. And, I’s know we mention havin’ a luvvin’ furever home a lot, but I’s think that’s a Blessin’ we should give fanky fanks fur every day. ‘Specially with all these storms we’ve been havin’. I’s wouldn’t wanna even think ‘bout havin’ to live outside in it. (Raena shudders

 

Dezi:  You’re right Raena. Havin’ a furever home is somethin’ to be fankful fur every day. As are our furiends and mommy. Our life’s purretty good from where me’s sittin’. Sure we have a few purroblems now and then, but mommy says that’s just pawrt of life. And, as long as we have each other, God and luv, there ain’t nuffin we can’t overcome.

          Raena:  You’ve got that right sissy. We luvs our furiends so much. We meow extra purrayers fur each of you every day.

Dezi:  Let’s wrap this up Raena. Me’s kind’a hungry too. 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. And, we wanna say and meowsy big Thank you to all of you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.

I’s not sure what all this “easy” stuffs is, but this is what mine’s easy looks like.

Blest Sunday: Blessings Floor To Ceiling And Beyond

Dezi:  MeOW  HiSsssssssss RaenaBelle!!! Quit jumpin’ on me!!! 

 

Blest Sunday purple kitty clip art graphic

 

 

 

          Raena:  I’s didn’t jump on you sissy, I’s jumped over you. I’s was in a hurry to get to the purrch. I’s thought I’s saw somethin’ outside. 

 

Dezi sit on cat tree and Raena sits on small perch while looking out the door

 

 

 

Dezi: Ya’ still need to stop. How many times has mommy told you to slow down Raena? Besides, it’s Blest Sunday and was time fur brekky. What ifin mommy had a been tryin’ to bring us our plates at that very minute? Y, All our food would’a ended up on the floor. We’re not heathens, we don’t eat off the floor. 

 

Dezi and Raena eating

 

 

 

          Meow fur yourself sissy, sometimes I’s find all kinds of yummy things on the floor. Y, Just the other day mommy dropped a piece of cheese in the kitchen when she was makin’ her smashed tater with cheese. Ifin I’s hadn’t grabbed it up when I’s did, she would’a throwed it in the trash. What a waste that would’a been. I’s luvs me some cheese. Ya’ know our china platters are fine, but I’s not gonna miss an oppurr-tunity to eat me somethin’ tasty just cuz it’s not served with silver and gold trimmins. See, sometimes you can find Blessings on the floor. Just be careful it’s food and not a bug. 

 

(Dezi shakes her head) Oh Raena, sometimes me just doesn’t know what to do with you. 

 

          Oh sissy, just luvs me. You know you were just like me once. Mommy says so. She says when you were young you couldn’t wait fur her to open the door in the meownin’ and put the purrch in front of it. She says you used to sit on it fur hours and chirp and chortle at anythin’ that came by. 

 

Dezi sits on small perch looking outside

 

 

 

 

Yeah Raena, me did. It seems so long ago now. It also seems like there was more to see back then. We used to have stray kitties and all kinds of wildlife play on our porch. It’s gotten so hot, ain’t nuffin’ outside doin’ much of anythin’. Y, just last night it was still 104°F at 9:30 p.m.. That’s just too hot.

 

          Yep sissy, it is. You’d think the old bobcat and the coon family would be knockin’ on our door askin’ fur food. It’s gotta be too hot to hunt.

 

Me’s been wonderin’ where they were Raena. We haven’t seen either of ‘em all season. Maybe when it starts coolin’ off in a couple of months they’ll show up. Fankfully, we furinally got a new lease signed. Our rent went up $30.00, so mommy may have to put her dentures on hold fur a bit. It takes quite a bit of gas to get there every week and she’s been drivin’ on fumes the last couple times. With more money we don’t have goin’ to rent and nowhere to take green papers from, that drive is purretty much the only thing left to cut.

 

Raena lays on scratching pad

 

 

 

          Well sissy, I’s guess that’ll give her more time to try to fix the mess the manager made and figger out what they can and can’t do befur it all starts again. Ya’ know the manager told mommy that they’re gonna be “rehabing” these ‘pawrtments soon and that they’re gonna wanna do a move out and then move us back in and start all this again in just a few months. Mommy told ‘em they couldn’t do that cuz she has a years lease, and utilities that be in her name that she has to pay each month. While she might not have had to put down a depawsit, those companies charge to turn it on and move it and stuffs. Not to mention the stress mommy’s just went thru. We fur sure can’t be doin’ this again that soon. We all need time to recupurrate.  

 

Yeah Raena, the way they treat us just ain’t right. It’s not like we’re poor and need help by choice. And mommy certainly ain’t disabled by choice. Ifin mommy could change our situation, she would in a heartbeat. Our mommy ain’t afraid of work. Y, Befur her accident, she worked 2 and 3 jobs at a time to make sure she could affurd everythin’ she needed and wanted. 

 

          I’s heard sissy. She says she was young and dumb back then and didn’t save, so that’s why we’re in the shape we’re in now. Altho’ I’s know mommy wishes she could do more and could give us more, and had more money, I’s glad things happened the way they did. Y, ifin they hadn’t who knows where you and me would be? We might not have ever been saved?. I’s don’t even wanna think ‘bout what it would have been like ifin mommy hadn’t showed up and whisked me away to this Blest life. 

 

Dezi lays on liberty tree and Raena on the small perch looking at each other in front of the door.

 

 

 

Me neither, Raena, me neither. We might not be rich by the standards the world uses, but when it comes to luv, we’re bazillionaires. 

 

          You got that right sissy. We’ve got the bestest mommy ever, altho’ we know all of you think you’ve got the bestest pawrent, and that’s okay. And meowin’ of all of ya’, we can’t ‘magine a life without you.

We wouldn’t want to Raena. We have the bestest furiends in the whole universe. God smiled on us the day we met you, our dear furiends, and we ask Him each and every day to keep and Bless you and your families. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you to take a minute today and every day to give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Blessings are all ‘round us, we just have to stop and see ‘em.

          So true sissy, so true. Let’s link up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies and go get us some mommy luvvin’. But furst, I’s wanna meow Fanky fank You God, fur all our blessings. And fanky fank all of you fur bein’ pawrt of our Blessings each day.

 

Me seconds that Raena. C’mon, me will race ya’ to mommy’s lap.

 

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