I have been watching the leaves on that big old tree outside my window,
for a very long time.
It seems as though it was not very long ago-
that they were tiny little buds.
And then one day they were pink blossoms,
and then the blossoms grew into leaves.The color of the leaves was one of my most favorite greens!
Soon the seasons changed,
and another season came- it was fall.
The beautiful greens all changed to golden yellows and oranges,,
ohhhh,, change was coming again!
the leaves started to fall..
I began to wonder what it would be like
if perhaps the leaves would stay forever on the branches
and spread out like a thick blanket and protect the tree from the cold winter.
Maybe it just might happen this year.!
The leaves began to fall .
Everyday more leaves would fall.
I could hear them,, maybe they laughing.
Everyday I would try to count how many more leaves were still hanging from the branches.
But there were still too many leaves to count.
too many,Some leaves hid behind other leaves...
and some peeked out.Last night the moon was full and jack frost visited,
His lips kissed every leaf.Yes every leaf.
with the golden leaves.
The leaves were falling like snow flakes..!
Very gently.. and softly.I watched them...
I pretended that I was one of those golden leaves..
and I thought about what it would be like to be. ....ready to fall,,,
but yet still trying to hang on tight and not fall., not tumble and not let go.I must have been day dreaming ,
when all of a sudden i noticed there were only two golden leaves left........
Suddenly they let go of the branch... holding onto each other....they flitted and twirled as they floated to the ground,,,
together.. they tumbled togetherjust as it should be.
|We can play pretend.|
We can pretend there are treasures inside these red magic cups!
|I wish for some treats,,,|
so that is what I am pretending.
There must be some treats in one of these magic red cups!
Which one do I choose?
|Let's take a peek! Ok red cup,,I pick YOU!|
Oh quick like a bunny- I found a treat!!
|Now I am pretending this cup is full of magic bubbles! |
And all the magic bubbles will take me for a ride
- way up high into a sky full of cotton candy!
That is what I pretend today!
Its good to pretend everyday.
|Sometimes humans and cats need proof to believe things.|
Here is my proof!
I was resting with one eye open and one eye was closed.
The closed eye was sleeping..
The awake eye saw my brother Hank looking through the window,
so I got up from my nest on the floor.
Hank was looking down at me, to see if I was better..
|See,, here is proof that I am feeling better!!|
My night is better,.
My day is better.
I am better!
|Hi my friends!!|
I am feeling betters..!
The magic bubbles and POTP have helped me!
The pain monster did not come last night,,
and I slept for a million hours!
|The sun rays,|
and magic bubbles
are everywhere in my house,,,
Can you see them?
Thank you my friends for staying by my side,
and sending me love!
I will keep getting betters.
|Somedays are like this.|
Sitting and sitting
and sitting up sleeping
Yesterday I had to visit the hospital because an invisible monster
has been making me scream.
The monster is hiding right now-
and that's a good thing.
Maybe I screamed so loud it went away!
The doctors examined every inch of me..
and they could not find the monster.!
I am a mystery!
Here I am resting ,,and being quiet.
Sometimes this is what we all need to do
to get better.
My monkey friend will help me get better.
I think everyone needs a monkey
and just perhaps
everyone needs a monkey day!
UPDATE NOV 8
The pain monster visted last night when I was in bed,,
trying to sleep.
it made me scream.. !
My night was a little restless,
Today I have just been quiet like my doctors said to be.
I hope to feel better soon,.
I hope to have happy eyes again!
Thank you all of my friends for staying close beside me and moms.
