Where Does My Joy Come From - 10/19/16

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Where does my joy come from today.....

.... after poor Julia got mauled by the bullterrier, she moved herself out to my Mom's apartment. There is nothing like knowing while my baby is on a different continent as us, she will receive love and care from her grandparents while trying to heal up and work through the terror of a dog attack. My Mom showed her how to use the crutches correctly, helped her wash her hair and is giving her such love and care, it makes my heart full of joy and thankfulness. This is Julia safely tucked away in the Dining room bed at my Mom's:

....hubby reported that when he comes home from night shift, our granny Labrador Velvet (now 14, completely deaf and working on her Alzheimer's) wakes him up barking every couple of hours to get a snack. She forgets that she was fed already. If I have early shift, it is like torture for the poor man!! So I set up her old crate in the guest room furthest away from our bedroom. Usually she just rests up in the crate. So I started to make the crate we have not used in 5 years fun again by feeding her the meals in there. She seemed very excited. Let's see if that makes a difference today.

.... I get to go to Seminar Part 2 today. We will be learning about client communication today. I hear this part is full of great information and active participation. I can't wait. I have a lot of fun at these events, and with so many challenging customers, we can all benefit from that!

    Glad Julia is receiving so much love and wishing her well and healed of the emotional side too. You are so thoughtful and considerate of everyone's needs.

    I do hope Julia recovers quickly. She is in my prayers. I so miss having a dog. But hubby is a cat person so we have a cat instead. He is a real character. Every morning he will sit at my door and meow trying to wake hubby up to come give him his canned cat food. We keep dry cat food out for him all the time but he only gets one can of the wet cat food a day and he gets that when hubby wakes up. He is so spoiled rotten. Haha! I made a funny. Our cat's name is Johnny as in Johnny Rotten who was the lead singer for the punk band "Sex Pistols". Not my type of music. My youngest daughter used to listen to them all the time when she was younger and she is the one that picked the name for our cat.
    God bless you and keep you on your journey! Have a fabulous day!

    Hugs and prayers to Julia for a speedy recovery. Hoping for the best with Velvet. I must say what a wonderful name for her. She looks like Velvet in her picture. emoticon
