Moving Along

My friend is having her 60th birthday today. She is not allowing celebration because today is also a sad day. It was her mother's birthday as well, and mother passed away last December. So it is the first birthday they don't get to have each other. I made a card that says, Happy Summer Day and got her this vase and cut flowers just to liven up the mood.

Meanwhile, Floyd wanted to help me set up the flowers and insisted he stick his nose right in the arrangement. A week ago today we had to put his best buddy, Chester, to sleep. It broke our hearts into a million pieces to lose our Staff Sargent who told us when to get up, eat lunch, serve dinner, and go to bed. Everyday for Chester was a strict schedule of ins and outs and ups and downs. Now we have to go about our days rather lost. But, the fact that Floyd thought he should help with the flowers made me feel better that someone would take up the organization of our little family.

Sounds like a day of mixed emotions. I'd like to think that Chester was putting his own little touch on the flower arrangement in memory of his buddy, the Sgt. My cat, Bear, loves to bury his nose in sweet smelling flowers.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

What a gorgeous vase. Hope your friend had a sweet day. Funny how our animals can take charge eh?

Miss Molly-I really hope that your friend had a wonderful day with you, and sharing memories even though its got to be a hard one.

Very sorry for the loss of your Sgt kitty too. Maybe Floyd will start to take over some of the "management issues" that Sarge saw fit to oversee, and help out your little family there...

Well Thank You guys, for the kind words. Floyd seems to be coming right around with his own voice.
Our fear was that he might get sick with a broken heart, but on the contrary he is stepping right up to make us feel better.

Oh, I am so sorry about Chester. It is amazing how these animals can get right to our souls, isn't it? What a wonderful person you are to be sure your friend celebrated a Happy Summer Day instead of just letting that birthday pass by. Thank you for visiting my blog the kind comments about our missing Kitty who shares your name.
