For Now


I’m writing this with my sweet, old, feeble-minded cat in my lap. This wonderful companion of almost 19 years goes by the name of Curtis, and he’s truly been the best cat anyone could ever hope for. An avid hunter in his youth, he vigilantly kept all manner of rodents and other crawly things from entering the house. Well, from entering alive anyway. From his continual purring to his constant cuddliness, just think of all of the positive things that can come from having a cat, and that’s him.

But the old guy is really starting to slow down. In fact, I believe it’s just a matter of time until we need to say our final goodbyes. It makes me sad, very sad, especially for my daughter as she has had him around for as long as she can remember. For now we hold him, tell him how much we love him, and just appreciate the time that we’ve been so blessed to have our furry little friend in our lives.

This, to me, is a reminder of the precious nature of life, and how death is inevitable for all of us – no one is immune. It’s also about appreciating life as it comes, even when those around you come and go. As hard as it is to lose someone, having them in your life for a period of time is a rich reward that needs to be valued when they are still with us – not just after they’re gone.

So for now I sit, Curtis in lap and sound asleep, paws gently twitching, no doubt dreaming of stealthy hunting of days past.

From Over There:
“The body is fleeting, but the soul eternal. Appreciate the time spent in the body and the abilities it brings to you. Understanding the soul as eternal is not to dismiss the importance of time spent in the body and the lessons learned while inhabiting it. It is this perspective of appreciation of this time and what it offers that brings greater joy and an easier path to growth during the given lifetime.”
