In the Pit?

I flicked on the radio while I was driving yesterday and into the middle of a radio program. I wish I could tell you what program it was or who was speaking as he was just wrapping up, however,  I missed that part....
but what he said in his wrap up really spoke to me.  Read on and tell me if it speaks to you

He told this story:

I decided to take a walk along a certain road one day, and I fell into a deep dark pit.  It took me a long time to get out.   It wasn't my fault.

I decided to take a walk on that same road another day and I fell into that same pit. It took me a long time to get out. Why didn't I see it? Maybe it is my fault.

I decided yet again to walk that road and I fell into the pit again!!! I got out a little fater this time. It is my fault.

One more time I decided to walk that road and this time I saw the pit and walked around it.

Finally, I decided to walk a different road.......

We all seem to have some pit filled roads in our lives and why oh why do we continue to go down those same roads knowing those pits are there? Isn't it time to take a different path?

Your thoughts?

I will never forget you~ My favorite animal

 I will never forget October 1, 1982 or February 25, 2004. These are the dates that my precious Momma Kitty entered and left my life. She was the most special fur baby and companion I ever had. She was with me through thick and thin- through some wonderful ife experiences and some pretty awful ones- she was always by my side with a snuggle and a purr.

I loved how she used to sleep curled up against my neck and heaven forbid, I have a yogurt to myself! It was the only people food she liked but boy if I opened one it was like most cats that hear the can opener. She'd bolt for my lap and try to stick her paw in the cup to pull it to her. I guess she could smell it in the air. So here I'd sit, a spoonful for me, a spoonful for her..and so on.    

I used to say she was living out her 9 lives because she had some strange accidents, like the time she broker her tail in the fence and it had to be amputated.

The year she passed was also the year we had 3 major hurricanes hit here within 6 weeks.  A traumatic year to say the least. My son was in 1st grade and I remember that day, she looked so bad and I could see she was struggling. I took my son to school and then loved on her and held her in my arms. I took her to the cat hospital but she didn't quite make it.  I am glad her last memory was a loving one.

When I picked my son up from school that day, I told him. He looked at me so sweetly and said "Don't worry Mom, she's in kitty heaven right now, playing with toys and chasing lizards. Got to love that boy of mine!!

Who was your most special pet?
