Welcome to "Friendly Fill-Ins"! Each Thursday we post four statements with blanks for you to fill in. The first two fill-ins are provided by my co-host, Ellen of 15andmeowing.com. The final two statements are offered by myself. On Friday, we post our completed fill-ins with a link for you to join us with your completed fill-ins.
Okay...let's share! Here are my completed statements:
1. Everyone should read poetry. I believe the more you read poetry, the more you connect with yourself and others through it. Reading poetry can be inspiring on many levels. I sincerely believe that there is poetry in every living thing.
2. My first cat was a rescue. I was 12. Our next door neighbors tended to acquire pets that did not stay around for long. One day, their 9-year old boy was throwing something around and yelling. I went outside to see what he was doing, just as a young cat ran into my yard. I quickly scooped it up. The boy started yelling at me about his cat. I said, “This cat is in my yard, so it is my cat.” Still holding the cat, I turned around and went in my house. I named the cat Schatzie and we became inseparable.
3. My favourite time of day is night because it is proof that day has completed itself. You can almost feel it relax as it contemplates its accomplishments. Night also gives us a chance to quietly contemplate things, including our own selves.
4. I think dreams sustain us. They offer hope and keep us going. Dreams may follow us through life, or they may change with the scenery of our journey. Yet, the possibilities our dreams offer is always there. I wrote a post about this; it is called "Sweet Dreams".
~May all of your dreams come true~
