As Simrat at Akal Ranch says,
Gratitude creates its own attitude.
Once again, It’s Thankful Thursday, and I’m taking a moment to consider all the things I have to be grateful for. Part of mindful awareness is living gratitude every moment of every day, and not just while writing Thankful Thursday’s post, however. Please remember that even if you don’t participate in Thankful Thursdays, be mindful and grateful for everything.
Take a few minutes today to create your own Thankful Thursday. If you don’t have a blog of your own, you are welcome to post your thoughts here. If you have a blog, post what you are grateful there, and please link back here. Feel free to tag other bloggers. We are trying to get a mindful movement of gratitude going.
This just in:
A Kailua-Kona woman reports today that although she waited all day Thursday for an idea for Thankful Thursday’s post, she came up empty-handed. Going to bed at her regularly-scheduled time, she felt saddened by the barren state of her normally creative consciousness.
Instead of peaceful sleep, the woman relates what can only be described as an episode of unsolicited feline friendly attention. Let her story be a warning to all single females in the state of Hawaii!!!! Though the outdoors is indoors and the indoors is outdoors, be mindful of who and what walks indoors while you are in bed!!!
I had just turned on my ceiling fan and pulled my crisp white cotton sheets up to my chinny chin chin, when all of a sudden a grey and white ball of fur flew onto my bed!
The woman went on to describe hours of feline kneading, scratching and purring, ending in the cat, who goes by many aliases, the most recent of which is Bobbie*, curling up beside her and proceeding to sleep.
I’ve been missing my cats, Evin and Gizmo, like crazy. I’m fur- and purr-deprived. Bobbie’s presence is something to be thankful for.
At this time, the woman, who has asked to remain anonymous for fear that Bobbie’s real owner may become jealous, is resting comfortably with the aid of sedatives prescribed by EMTs.
* Bobbie is a rescued Keauhou cat. He is grey and white, with a notched ear and a, you guessed it, bobbed tail. For the story of the Keauhou cats, please stay tuned to this blog.
