Lucy is about the same, certainly not any worse. She developed a small irritated spot on her paw so we ordered some larger boots so we could put a small and soft dressing on the area, She is adapting to the lameness and seems to walk better. The biggest problem is that much of the great room is hardwood with a large rug in the living area and a long one in the hallway. She seems to understand that she cannot navigate the stairs but we keep a gate there as a reminder.
She is definitely less active and we have changed her diet and feeding to accommodate for that.
She lies down more even if she doesn't sleep.
My son identified with Tigger as a young boy. (You know, bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, fun fun fun fun fun). His "loveys" were a blanket and a small Winnie-the-Pooh which I had saved and sent to him when he brought Violet home. I decided to send a Tigger as well.
As you can tell in the following photograph, Tigger was substantially bigger than Violet. (My son assured me he removed the toy as soon as he took the picture.)
Little Violet and Tigger
While Tigger has remained the same size, Little Miss Violet has continued to grow and thrive.
Sometimes a mom has to cuddle her child while she feeds herself breakfast.
Sometimes we get so caught up in worldly things that we forget some of the basic truths of life.
Today's quote is from Marcus Aurelius:
"When you arise in the morning,
Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive,
To breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love."
So don't waste your time hating and screaming about injustice. If you can do something to change it, then do it. But if you cannot, then focus on your own life and happiness.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK, EVERYONE
FOCUS ON HOW PRECIOUS LIFE IS
REACH OUT TO HELP OTHERS
WE ARE ONE WORLD, ONE PEOPLE
