trying something different

mom's trying something different. it's called 'self care'. mom's tired, crabby, and sad. instead of pushing (mom's good at pushing), we're going to take a couple of days off. we'll turn off the computer, and then cuddle and nap.

there's nothing to worry about...we're going to be fine. friendly purrs are welcome!

with much love (and gratitude for the kindness and generosity that we've seen over the past few weeks),

GOOD! R&R, purrs and headbumps - that's what you need (you never really got to take any time off after the audit either) - sorry the weather doesn't look too exciting - but maybe just some inside,quiet time - worked for me. I think I've finally gotten rid to the cold that has been hanging on for the past month! Have a great time off - you deserve it. XOX T.

Dear Toni and Benjamin! Tonight I opened your email and I felt you need this rest. So I want to share my favorite poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow with you.

Take this sorrow
to thy heart,
and make it a
part of thee,
and it shall
nourish thee
till thou art
strong again.

I love this and it is so true once you realize the words.
Our little orange girl is still doing works in our lives...
tonight I recieved an email to mentor a cancer patient...her sweet name is Suzanne:) I will accept the assignment in Suz's honor.
Please take good care of yourself and Benjamin...we will miss you until you return to us refreshed.
Love and purrrrs Karla & MIss Peach

Sometimes a break is what those humans need to get their heads all fixed. Please do rest!

We understand. Mommy did the same thing after her woofies passed. It is a good idea to get yourself back on your feet and take care of yourself. Seriously, splurge and get a deep tissue massage.

We will miss you but will be here when you get back. Take care Benjamin and Toni.

Sometimes it is very good to take a break and take care of yourself. Cuddling and napping sound like a great plan. {{{hugs}}} to you.

Rest is probably a good idea. Take some time off - have some rest. Hopefully this will be refreshing and you will find comfort and peace. I won't advise against even adopting a new kittie when you feel comfortable ~ since this may provide new good company to both of you.
see u soon. take good care of each other :)

love from ur family: omer, snow and forest :)

I understand, sweet Ben and Toni. Give each other lots of good snuggles and know that sweet Suz is with both of you in spirit and in your hearts. She was deeply loved and will never, ever be forgotten.

Purrs and snuggles from your loving sister,

Marilyn.

that's a really good idea. sometimes the Lady has to do that too. there's nothing better than quality time with a cuddly kitty. purrrrrrs!

Karen Jo said...

That sounds like a wonderful idea to me. Cuddle, snuggle and nap as much as you can. Kitty therapy can do wonders. We will all still be here when you feel like returning.

Have a restful time off. It helps to get away for a few days to relax and rejuvenate. Our thought and prayers are with you, Benjamom Fuzz and Mom Toni.

Good for your mommy (and you too). Daddy took Mommy on a long vacation after McKenzie passed and she says it helped a lot to just get away from the daily routine.

Take care, rest and relax.

Benjamin when you return...

Jake and Bathsheba said...

It's been a tough time for you. A break from blogging and lots of cuddling may help. Do something that really makes you happy--something that can make you purr.

We'll be here when you return.

Purrs,

Yes, take a break and get some rest. Lots of snuggles with Benjamin and naps should do wonders!
