Today was a day that I thought that I would be ready for ....but it was still so very painful. My cat, Hadassah passed away. She has not always been an outside cat. I let her start going out though over the last few months. It made a huge difference in her attitude and state of mind.
Yesterday I realized that I had not seen her in about 2 days. This has happened before and every time she returned. This last week though, I have had an awful feeling. Actually for about a month now, I thought for sure that the Lord was preparing me for this. Well, today was different. The neighbor found her and she was already gone.
I have cried most of the day today. When I was told about her, memories of her as a kitten came back to me. I remember how much I loved her that first year especially. She was a crazy kitten...scrappy! She loved to be chased up and down the hallway, playing hide and seek, playing soccer with balls of paper. She brought a lot of joy to my life. Even though she didn't live up to her name. (The original was a sweet Jewish Christian girl from my favorite books) She was my baby. My very first pet, a gift and blessing as I lived alone my first year of college. I will miss her so much.

I have been enjoying the hot summer days out at the lake the last couple of weeks. Of course the dogs enjoy it even more than me! While they play chase and swim in the water, I am enjoying the sunshine from my lounge chair taking a Francine Rivers book...Caleb. I have been trying to read this series of men in the Bible but I haven't had the time to get into them....now I do! It's a wonderful life!!

I realized the other day that I have never posted any pages or photos of my cat, Hadassah. She was my very first pet. A friend of mine gave her to me as a graduation gift 5 years ago. I loved her so much! It was really a cool experience to feel so much love for her. Even though she is just a cat, she is mine. I am probably the only person in the world that she trusts or will ever show any affection to. Actually, most people that know her are more afraid of her than they are of Game.
She is quite the guard cat.

I have been looking forward to this day for about 10 days now......a day off! It has been INSANE the last few weeks, working up to 80 hours a week, and not one day off. I love my job so that relieves some of the pain. I have been looking forward to having some real, unrushed, uninterrupted time. It will be so nice to not rush my walks, or time at the gym. I cant wait to spend some time in the Word and in the prayer room. There is so much I must take care of today and catch up on with my house. I am going to enjoy every minute of it though.
