I was born on a cold November night, on a Friday the 13th. In 10 days, I will be celebrating another birthday. What makes this more special than all the other birthdays? Because I have found a deeper meaning in life. I now find joy in the sunrise. I wake up and thank God that I am alive! I stand in awe watching the sunset. Another day done, accomplished my tasks, but have I made someone's life better? Have I taken care of God's creation?
For the next 10 days, I will be paying more attention to things that I used to consider mundane.
Today I mark the countdown to my birthday. Today is Day 10. I took a leisurely walk around the neighborhood and took pictures of stray cats.
Why cats? Because I pity the poor creatures. They seek shelter from the sun's heat under parked vehicles and wait for people to take their trash out before they can have a meal. I am not an avid cat lover, but I do have a feeding dish outside our house where I put table scraps for the stray cats to eat.
Without much ado, here are my neighborhood friends:
|This kitty cat seems to be wondering why I wanted to take a picture of her.|
|This cat was scared and ready to take off!|
|My neighbor's "resident" stray cat.|
|Now this cat even posed for the camera!|
