On a Rainy Thursday Morning

It is a glorious privilege to live, to know, to act, to listen, to behold,
to love. To look up at the blue summer sky; to see the sun sink slowly
beyond the line of the horizon; to watch the worlds come twinkling into
view, first one by one, and the myriads that no man can count, and lo!
the universe is white with them; and you and I are here.

Good morning, everyone.  It's another rainy day, but I'll be off to WW anyway.  Cannot miss my weekly weigh in.  And besides, I love the meetings.  Through the month of October we are working on change. And change is something I need to accept if I hope to continue on my new, healthy lifestyle.  

Yesterday I spent a good deal of time in tears.  As you all know. I follow several live animal feeds and only during the past several months have I begun following kitty feeds, especially Cute Foster Kittens.  Well , one of the little babies had a heart murmur that was only getting worse.  So, rather than see the little one suffer, they euthanized him yesterday.  Broke my heart.  Amazing how one can fall in love with an animal that you have only seen online.  RIP little Digit. 

Not much else to talk about today.   Yesterday was a lazy day.  I read and when my eyes got heavy, I slept.  I have to remember to put my drops in my eyes every day.  Sometimes I am not even tired, but I have to shut my eyes to rest them.  Dry eye syndrome.  Putting drops in in the morning is a habit I have to develop.

Well, that's about it today.  Keep your fingers crossed that I lost more weight.  Talk to you all tomorrow.  I would like to end this with a prayer for sweet Digit.

Eternal Spirit, we bring you our grief in the loss of  Digit and ask for courage to bear it. We bring you our thanks for Digit  who lived among us and gave us freely of his/her love. We commit our friend and companion Digit into your loving hands. Give us eyes to see how your love embraces all creatures and every living thing speaks to us of your love. Amen.


  1. So sorry about dear little Digit. So sad.

    Good luck at your WW meeting and have fun. Big hug Mary!

  2. That's a beautiful prayer, Mary, my dear friend.

    Have a magical night.
