A Bad Black Kitty Cat...

He looks cute enough, doesn't he?  hahaha

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Don't let that innocent little face fool you!  This little boy has chewed through a couple hundred dollars worth of electrical wires already, knocked down several potted plants and just tears through the house through the middle of the night looking for something/anything to terrorize. 

Do you ever feel like you are being tested pretty much on a daily basis?  I do.  It seems that each week that passes presents another challenge in our lives.  This little kitten is just a mild addition to those challenges.  I am hoping that there is something to be learned and strength to be gained as each of these challenges are faced.  I, however, feel almost like how much stronger should a person need to be, right?  Is there a light to be found somewhere in the dark to reach the end of the tunnel...is there a peace to be had before our time on this earth is gone?  Am I expecting too much out of life?  I guess it's possible that next week, I could post on here about a great time that I may be having....(or at least I would like to hope that).  I think I want to take this opportunity of feeling down to make certain that I acknowledge all the things that I do appreciate in life....like the fact that I woke up healthy today as did my family, I have a roof over my head, food to feed my family, a safe country in which to live, even if it is not at it's best economically right now...good friends whether they be here in person or cyber friends..they all are treasures to me.  I am grateful for all of these blessings and many more, so I do realize that there are always good and bad things in life.  With so many tragic things going on in this world, I feel pretty guilty thinking that anything for me should have to be easy, so I guess I am sharing this with you to try to put things into perspective for myself.  Trying to put words down as therapy to put it out of my head and move past the cloudiness and let the sunshine in.  So, if I rambled and bored you to tears...I apologize ;)  I probably could have written this on paper for myself only, but this way, I can always go back and read this post again if I need to to remember to look at the positive.

I hope that you all remember your blessings each day, and if you are having a tough time right now...I'm right there with you.  We can get through it together.  Thanks for dropping by..  On a little brighter note, I will have a card to share with you for next week's M5D releases.  Hope you'll stop by and have a look then. 

Enjoy your day,

He just can't stop looking for attention, even the BAD kind! Can't wait to see the new card creations~!

He's plotting as he lay looking up at the camera, isn't he? Carolyn, you just write whatever you need to - we are here! For the record, we could have written the same post today! I'll be thinking of you, dear friend! Hugs...

Each day opens new doors, new opportunities for God's blessings. The chances you have of tomorrow being a brighter day is very high =) Cute kitty by the way... naughty as she is! HEY, I think Sue's kitten must have dashed thru her door and on over to your house!! LOL =)

Oh, looks like my Joey, I know they are bad news!!

I too am grateful for my cyber friends, this too shall pass as soon at the weather hits a wonderful 60 degrees and sunshine. I will be thinking of you Carolyn.

Carolyn,
My heart goes out to you! I too have many days of what I affectionately call my "pity party day" LOL. I have lots of health issues that have changed my life but as you have said it will move on and be a brighter day. Years ago I heard a saying that I loved " inch by inch life is a cinch, yard by yard it's too darn hard"! So take the downer days inch by inch and soon it will be all better. Hugs to you may your downer days be few, my cyber friend!!
