"Thought for the Day"

"Thought for the Day"


Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church , a home.
The remarkable thing is, we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. 
The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

~ Strengthening Your Grip (Word/Insight for Living)

This was sent to mom by a friend that she dearly loves. I love it and am going to try and adjust myself instead of wishing others would change. Isn't it a great thought for the day....

Disgusted but happy

I have been so busy with mom, cleaning out everyones "STUFF"!  Haven't crafted in more than a month... ~~~~~withdrawals~~~~~ But we are reaching bottom. Yeah!
Grandmas stuff, Papa & GG's stuff, people that have stayed some that for some reason never stayed but we have their stuff too. (rolling eyes) when my Mom use to jokingly say "If you are missing something it is probably at my house" (I thought she was joking) NOT!
Years of stuff that mom hasn't seen as my Ex BIL packed a lot of it up and stacked it 2 of the 5 rooms upstairs were completely packed top to bottom, front to back. We now have 2 bedrooms and a craft room with a single bed. We have 2 more rooms upstairs to finish.

Now for the disgusting part... our neighbors 3 doors down have cats. Lots of cats... I want to see the cats gone! 1 in particular as she keeps catching our chicks. Mom had that cat run right past her with a chick. I have seen it hunting them and run her off, but she keeps coming back. She got one 4 days ago I was furious! The Happy part is she showed up today. She is badly hurt, but doing ok for now. I will keep her inside for a few days as she has been without food or water and she is taking some in, but can't walk or isn't very steady.
She is missing a lot of feathers and has some pretty bad gashes. Right now she is sleeping on my chest wrapped in a piece of tee shirt. Making sweet little noises. Here are a couple of pictures of her. She is quite comfortable sleeping in the sling.
 Pretty beat up baby.
She has a bad smell to her so I'm not sure she will make it but hopefully we will be able to tell more tomorrow. In the meantime, anyone know how to keep cats away without hurting them? I have even called the sheriff's office and there is no laws against cats. But I can defend our chicks, but he could sue me if I hurt his cat. The only thing I can do is sue him for the chicks, but there would be no guarantees he would pay. So...I am open to almost any ideas. Hope everyone has a wonderful evening and a good new week.
