My mind was racing as I walked. I thought about the wedding coming up and went over what was left to do. I felt a tinge of sadness thinking of how my kids have grown and left the nest.
On a warm night like tonight the air is thick with the scent of lilacs everywhere. I think heaven might smell like this. I came across many cats running about on the sidewalks and streets. Are they owned by anyone or are they looking for food at night when it is safe to roam? I stopped to pet one and she was very friendly and rolled on the sidewalk. This one was chubby and obviously well looked after. Another, not so much. He walked past me and never gave me a look. He was thin and scruffy. I only wish I had had some food with me. I think I'll keep an eye out for him next time and bring him something to eat.
Our porch light was on when I returned and Sierra sat by the bench.
I have lost loved ones and that changes you. I have lost 5 of my cats to illness in old age in the last 5 years. It's been hard to lose them. They meant so much to me. Change sometimes can be so hard.
But then to lighten the post remember this silly quote....
"Some people have cats and yet go on to lead normal lives." ;-)
