Ignoring Nudges

I know it’s all about timing. 
     Did you ever notice that when you need a “little something” in your life, something incredible happens?  The very thing you need comes along, ever so discreetly.  This has happened enough for me to know that it isn’t by chance.  It is God’s Plan.  And "believing".  That little push to lead me in the right direction.
     This happened within the last week.  I was praying for “something” (I didn’t know what), and I was led to Lorna Byrne on the internet.  I never heard of her before.  Now I will be following her because I know that she will teach me things I need to know. 
     That “little something” happened.  Just what I needed came along.  The anxiety I had, the worry….turned into peacefulness, the best feeling of calm.
     I am so happy that I am “listening” now.  One regret I confess is that after spending eight years in Catholic school - the school named “Guardian Angels” (in Detroit), that the nuns taught us all about our Guardian Angels.  And yet, I didn’t “get it” as seriously as I should have.  Shame on me. 
     But I “get it” now, profoundly.  With the calm that I am feeling, I don’t want to ever let go of it again.  Of course I know there will be obstacles that will rock my world, but I know that I am not alone.  I have at least my Guardian Angel with me all the time, and other angels, too. 
     Here is the book by Lorna Byrne that I am reading.  It is the kind of book that makes me feel good.  And it is teaching me so much.  I am so thankful.

Sophie
My very special companion. We found each other in August of 2006. It was one of those things when you truly know you found the right dog for you and that the dog felt the same way about you. And that was the beginning. I love coming home to my Sophie. She is still so much puppy, but I know how quickly the time goes by when the years aren't kind to dogs, so being a puppy for as long as possible is fine with me. She is loving and oh so affectionate. A true cuddler.

Here is my tailless cat. His best friend is Sophie. Watching both of them is so much fun. I hadn't expected to get another cat at the time I was at Petco looking at the fish. Then I heard that there was a pet adoption going on. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love cats. So of course I had to wander over. I looked at the adoptees and my eyes fell on Bob. I asked to hold him and that was all it took. He loved being held and of course he was acting as charming as possible. I said "Wrap him up." Off we went to the car and headed home. Bob doesn't so much like to be held like he did that first day. But that is ok. He is my little buddy. He is very happy living with me and Sophie, but not so much Chloe. He pretty much keeps out of Chloe's way and when he forgets, she reminds him. Trust me, she does. :-)~

This is my darling little kitty that has been with me for a very long time. She loves only me. Unfortunately her mom cat did not take her prenatal vitamins and Chloe suffered because of it. She has been blind for a very long time. The amazing thing is it is hard to notice it. She gets around wonderfully. Sometimes I get sad when I think about it because she can't see how I love her. But she feels it. She knows I love her and accept her for who she is - even when she is a little grumpy (don't we all have those kinds of days I ask?). God blesses our animals and sends them to us to make life just that much better. On 9.16.09 - Chloe left our little family to return "home". I miss her very much, but am comforted because I know she is with Daisy, Dumplin and Andrew - and can once again see as she roams in God's Home. This little cat will always be in my heart. Hugs and kisses to you, My Dear Little Chloe. I am so thankful for our time together. xoxo

Gibbs is one of the most affectionate cats I have ever had (and there have been many). He joined my family in June 2015. He, like Bob, is a Manx, which for both of them, do not have tails. Gibbs loves to cuddle and is pretty much my little shadow. He was pretty low key the first year, but has evolved into a very active kitty. He explores constantly. I am so thankful we found each other. I love him to pieces.
