That ‘s the way I’m looking at life these days. I want to survive the ride and land on my feet.. like a cat. Having spent the last few days with my grandcat and my grandkids I was reminded of the amazing way that cats live their lives. They can be found on the edge of almost anything..then suddenly they are under something and no one saw it happen. They flip up in the air and land with grace. They play hard..purr loudly and bring joy everywhere. Not a bad role model 🙂
This particular siamese cat is very lovable. He shows you how much he cares from the minute he gets up in the morning until the lights are turned off at night. He lives life fully and seems to find a way to entertain himself without doing much damage. The worst thing that happened was the moment when he brought a tiny frog in the house..in his mouth.. the kids screamed. Within seconds he was out the door and playing happily with his midnight snack. A simple life..but a good life.
So.. having studied him.. I think I am going to live as fully as possible..taking risks..enjoying each day..probably not hiding under the furniture or eating frogs.. just making every day count in my own small world. At the end of the day.. all I really want to do.. is land on my feet.
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”
