Tortie Tuesday - Holiday Spirit


It's me...Chica today.  We want to apologize for not posting or visiting for a few days. Mom keeps saying she has lost her Christmas spirit...and we have been helping her look for it.  We have looked everywhere but nothing has turned up.

Mom got a lot of sad news the past week - her friend Emily is very sick from her cancer treatment, Pop's sister in law Laura lost her Dad, Mom's Uncle Ray died and then this one sent Mom over the edge - her friend Nancy died unexpectedly from a heart attack.  Nancy was only a few years older than Mom!  This is the second friend Mom lost this year  - both from heart attacks and so young. Kinda scary.



Anyway - Mom is doing a little better and we will keep trying to find her spirit. Just remember to tell your loved ones how much you do love them, all the time, every day - don't wait cuz you never know what can happen.  Chica signing out!

P.S. Solstice Blessings to all of you - the days will be getting longer now!  Yay!

We are so sorry to hear you have had so much loss. If anyone can help you find your Christmas spirit again it is all your beautiful kitties! When I look into my cat's trusting, innocent faces it is difficult not to feel joy. Hold tight to them and to your loved ones and you will get through this difficult time. And know there are lots of people out in the CB who care about you :-)

Your poor mom - such bad time for her - give her lots of cuddles, snuggles and kisses to show her you care.

Purrs and Light and (((hugs))) to your mom...and to the family and friends of everyone who has passed.

The holidays are a difficult time of year and we're so sorry for all the losses and illness.

It's okay if your mom doesn't find her holiday spirit this year--understandable. Tell her she needs to give herself permission to just Be however she needs to be.

Solstice blessings to you all too.

We are so sorry to hear about all those losses. There is never a right time to lose someone you love ~ but when they are young and death is unexpected it is even harder than usual. Blessings and love to your mom ~ take good care of her.

Tell your Mom that I am so sorry for all the loss this year. It's always good to think a while when these things happen. Each moment should be enjoyed. We just forget sometimes.

Tell her that it's the Spirit of the Season that is fun. The sparkle of the trees. The children when they visit Santa. The singing and the whiteness (not driving in it though). There is always sadness but always something to keep us going.

Thinking of you and hoping that you can find the simple things to brighten your days.

Oh Dear. We are purring very hard for your Mom to regain a little Holiday Cheer, sometimes it's very hard. We are so sorry for her losses.

We are sending our love and happy thoughts to your Mom. Make sure she gets plenty of kitty time and rest. Holidays can be stressful and she needs to take care of herself.

I can see why your human is having a hard time finding any spirit right now! Give her some purrs and headbutts from me.

Oh goodness, Chica, we're so very sorry for all of your mom's losses and bad news. One of those things happening would be tough, but all of them so close together does become unbearable. We hope you kitties are on your best behavior for a while. We're sending purrs your way.

Your friends, Fuzzy and Zoe (and mom Jana)
