I absolutely love the sound of my kitties running about the house, dashing after various toys, playing with one another, and meowing all the while. Those are such wonderful noises, ones that always brighten my day and make life better. This is a bit of a sad story, but I didn't realize how much I'd miss those noises until my family and I lost Romeo, our senior cat of 17 years.
Merry Christmas, and happy holidays to all!! I know this holiday season, and just this year in general, hasn't been exactly what we expected or hoped for. For many of us, it's been a year of ups and downs, of disappointment and sorrow. But, there are still so many aspects of life that make it beautiful and joyful. And I think Christmas is one of the best occasions to focus on the positive parts of life. Even in a year like 2020, it's a time to feel and embrace joy, a time to concentrate on those we love most, and to spread kindness across the world.

As such, we all have posts full of holiday cheer that are sure to make your Christmas celebrations more merry and joyful this year!
Today marks the American Thanksgiving holiday, so happy Thanksgiving! I know, for many of us, we won't be able to spend this holiday as we normally would. But, I hope we can all make the most of it and still have a wonderful day full of joy and warmth. However you're spending the day, please do so in a safe way. Let's all take care and stay safe through the holiday season!
Today, let's all take a moment to consider the parts of life we're thankful for. It's true that we will always encounter obstacles and hardships throughout life, but even on our worst days, and in the toughest times, there are so many things to give thanks for. Just to be alive and breathing is such an amazing experience, and a wonderful opportunity. We can choose to dwell on the negative parts of life, or we can concentrate on those that are positive and enrich our lives.
