Oh my word. Mom and I went to Pets n Pals today, to look at the kittens. *smile* No cat is yet living here. We're still hoping Fuzzball is alive, maybe he's just taking a vacation. *shrug*
But back to the cute kitties, ooooooooo! So cute. One of them was sick, it'll probably die. :'( I want a kitty cat. But for 79 bucks!?! No thanks. Oh well.
On to the other subject: my parents. They love me so much, I guess I didn't realize how much.
"because the LORD disciplines those he loves,
as a father the son he delights in." -Proverbs 3:12
My Dad does stuff to protect me, not to make my life miserable. I guess I've always known that but recently it's become very obvious. It's because he loves me so much. Our relationship has grown and changed since he had cancer and now that he's been retired for almost two years we know each other better than before. We have
People don't reprimand someone they have no attachment to or no love for, they do it because they don't want to see that person get hurt.
I've asked my Dad's advice about stuff in the last couple days... He's answered wisely. Just like my Mom, we were talking about a situation in the car today. Things just started to make sense. Because by myself I'd be absolutely lost, but with God and people who are in authority in my life I receive wisdom.
Here's a good post by Heidi on the subject.
My Dad's relationship with me has grown and changed since he had cancer and now that he's been retired for almost two years we know each other better than before. We have a lot of fun just bugging each other. A couple days ago I hobbled outside and I saw my Dad working on the car with his tongue out. (It's my families genetic concentration trait. I've caught myself doing it while I'm walking, it takes a bit of concentration to use crutches.) Anyway, I walked over to him and stuck my tongue out, he just started laughing.
Anyhooo, back to the cat subject. It seems to me that most of the animals we've owned were just kind of dropped into our laps. So if God decides we need a cat, He will provide the best one for us. I do miss Fuzzball.
