Oh kitties… Even though I am having fun with all my blogging friends, I miss you too and promise I will be home soon… Please don’t be too mad at me – I will have lots of great swag to share with you!!
Well, here we go again! It’s hard to believe I am getting ready to leave today for my third BlogPaws Conference!! This year I am determined to stay the entire duration and respectfully ask that all hurricanes stay away from Tyson’s Corner, VA. I can’t wait for
the infamous cheesecake to see my old blogging buddies, as well as to catch up with other bloggers that I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet. I am also looking forward to attending some great seminars and doing some serious networking. Read more
The thing about a Mom is that they come in all shapes, sizes, colors, species, and sexes. That’s right, a Mom doesn’t even have to be female or have given birth to be a Mother. A Mom is symbolic of the act of being nurturing or supportive or an important part of your life that is universal to every living being. Or not. Truth be told, maybe your Mom or Mom figure wasn’t nurturing or supportive. Maybe she wasn’t your best friend and confidante, or maybe she was. Moms have an array of personalities and some bring up fond memories for us, and for others, they don’t.
So to celebrate Mother’s Day today, I respect that the day has different meaning for all of us. I happen to be blessed with a wonderful mother who is still with me. I also share a household with Zoey who happens to be the mother of three very darling cats that mean the world to me as well. And I am a Mom myself – I have two sons who are long grown and I have three step-children that are dear to my heart.
So, whatever the circumstances are, Happy Mother’s Day and may we continue to try to fill the world with love, hope, inspiration, and compassion.
Just a quick post to wish you all a wonderful Caturday! Mine is going to be an all day marathon of running errands, cleaning the house for the Mother’s Day BBQ I am throwing tomorrow, starting to plan what to pack for BlogPaws, paying some bills, and doing laundry. In other words, all those things I should have been doing ages ago, but have put off to the absolute last minute that I can no longer procrastinate over. Luckily for me, Rolz has agreed to help me do the vacuuming and Jazz, Mia, Peanut, and Zee are helping me pack.
That’s my day. What are you all doing today?
Oh, and just in case we are not able to catch up with you tomorrow, Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there in what ever traditional or non-traditional sense that might be!
When it comes to animals, there is no shortage of special days, weeks, and months devoted to either celebrating or promoting awareness about them in one fashion or another. For example, this week happens to be “Be Kind to Animals Week” and it is also “National Pet Month.” Read more
