Feline Friday #33 – Kitties and Fireworks!

I think fireworks are beautiful, and I enjoy seeing them. However, the noise they make is very very loud. And my cats really don't like loud, sudden noises. Needless to say, the Fourth of July isn't their favorite holiday.

Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day, a somewhat somber occasion. It's a time to honor and mourn those who have died while serving in the military and protecting us citizens. These brave, courageous people sacrificed themselves in order to protect others. They fought for a cause they believed in. They're amazing and truly deserve to be honored for all they have done.

The Women I’m Celebrating Today

I've been so blessed to have some wonderful maternal figures in my life. They've taught me many lessons over the years, like how to be strong, and how to stick up for myself. Those same women have nurtured me with endless love and care, molding me into the person I am today.
