Feeling Much Better!!

Thank ya'll so much for your prayers!

I am feeling soooo much better! Thank you all for all the prayers you sent up for me. Yesterday afternoon, I was finally able to take a deep breath. Today, I have just been doing it and savoring the feeling. Ahhhh, it is good to breathe! lol!

I don't believe in coincidences, I know that the POWER of Prayer is a magnificent thing. My being able to breathe deeply and freely, on the same day as I asked for prayer, is a direct result of God's work. So again thanks all you prayer warrior out there.

I have mentioned, from time to time, my 2 lovable Maine Coon kitties. Lizzie and Elvis. Lizzie is Elvis' mom. We got Lizzie when she was 6 months old. I used to work at a veterinarian clinic and they had her picture posted to the bulletin board in the waiting room. She was sooo cute, and she was free! What more could I ask for right?

I took the picture home and the kids and I had a pow-wow. Hubby had said, No Pets. So we discussed ways to approach the subject with him. I didn't want to just show up with her. But once he saw her pretty picture...well the rest is history. We called the people up and then we went and got our Lizzie.

She has such a personality! Very prissy! She's definitely the boss around our house. We let her have one litter of kittens and then we got her spayed. I highly recommend spaying and neutering your animals. Much to much are abandoned. Out of the litter we kept Elvis.

He is such a goof ball, and he's huge! He is 14 inches long and probably weighs about 12lbs. Since we have had him since he was born, (Jacky and I watched Lizzie give birth to the kittens) he will let us do just about anything to him. We just roll him around like a big fur ball.

As you know I have no biological children, 3 step children and 2 nieces, so Elvis and Lizzie get a lot of my attention. Does that make me and old cat lady? I hope not. Ha!!

I also mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I want to start a meme on Wednesdays. I plan on doing that. But, in loo of being sick, I just haven't been on the ball with that. But it's coming. I promise! :)

I hope everyone has a great night.

In Christ,

My allergist said my GERD played a HUGE role in aggrivating my allergies. He said that due to me having it for years and years, that it may also be the reason I get bronchitis several times a year.

I am glad you are feeling better.

Glad you are feeling better!!!
This tells you how much I know, I'm thinking she has coons for pets??? I know people do from time to time...but I quickly realized they were indeed cats...LOL. I should so not flaunt my ignorance sometimes.

I'm so glad to hear you are feeling better! And if that makes you a cat lady, then I am one too :-) Your cats are just adorable!

I am so glad to read that you are breathing easy again Renee. And I just love your cats. I have never lived a day in my life without at least one!! I have a 20 pound cat named Amos that I think is part maine coon. He is so fluffy and he doubles in size when his winter coat comes in. Such a lover too. It is okay to be crazy cat women. I am one:)

Love and Hugs, Laurie
