Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful there are now presents under my Christmas tree!  Tomorrow is my Gotcha Day and Mom promises that she has a present for me!



My Cat

My cat walks slowly through the house,
measuring each step,
examining the nooks and crannys,
and I can almost visualize,
the crown of diamonds on her head,
the purple velvet cape
trimmed with ermine
trailing behind her.

When I call her name,
she lifts her tail
in acknowledgment,
telling me she heard me
but continuing her noble walk.

When she naps on my chest
and gives me a lick,
I feel privileged indeed
to share my life
with a cat.

What a beautiful poem -- and how fitting! Especially the part where she lifts her tail and continues her noble walk! That's just like you, Praline!

And it's so exciting about getting a present tomorrow. We'll have to come by and see what it is.

We don't have out tree up yet, Mom was gonna do it today, but since we're in a brownout, she's afraid to add tree lights to the power.
