Journeys In Life

Where will you end up in your life’s journey  ? Life is a constant journey it takes us along many different paths in our life. We start out our journey young in life and learn by our different mistakes and by trial and error.

Do not get stuck in a journey that does not move along to strengthen and enrich your life or the lives of others.  Change is a constant on our journey in life. We have to learn to except change quickly and move along with it in a positive manner.

Journeys can be scary but we can learn much from each new journey we take in our lifetime. Travel is a journey where you learn from different cultures and realize they are not that different than you are. I love history and seeing historic buildings and learning what people did that made remarkable marks in history and how we live today. Without our founding Fathers we would not be the country that we are today. Scientist have discovered drugs and treatments that have saved many peoples lives over the years. Thank goodness we take different journeys in what jobs we choose. With diverse jobs we can help many people and accomplish much that will benefit mankind for many years to come.

I have had many journeys in my life such as travel, health, caregiver and job changes. We have to refresh our journey now and then and move forward to another journey that works out better for us in this particular juncture in time.

I have found my different journeys in life have benefited me in ways I had never imagined possible. I have grown closer to God and to people. I find it much easier and relaxing to visit with people. The power of prayer is truly remarkable and helps all of Gods flock.

Be steadfast on the many journeys you will take in your life time and do not falter. God will help you through your many journeys.

Fancy Feast Salmon Filet From Chewy.Com

I was provided Fancy Feast Salmon Filet from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

Maggie and her sister were in 7th heaven as they ate their Fancy Feast Salmon Filet from Chewy.Com. Maggie ate hers all up in three huge gulps. Maggie’s sister put the whole section in her mouth and ate it in two gulps. They did not want each other to get any of their portion of Fancy Feast Salmon Filet from Chewy.Com.

Purina Fancy Feast is made in the USA and the Salmon is a product of Thailand. You can serve the filet  whole, flaked, or as a topper. Each filet is perfectly portioned and packed for freshness for a true taste and tender texture.The ingredients are salmon, salmon broth and salt. Fancy Feast is a cat treat that will truly delight you cats taste buds.

I had a cat by the name of Ginger that would come running the minute I said Fancy Feast. She loved all of the different kinds of Fancy Feast. She would always eat every single morsel of her Fancy Feast and she lived to be 18 years old.

The three brothers next door at up their Salmon filet in record time. Addi, Faith and Nicole kept looking all over to see if they missed seeing any morsel of the Fancy Feast Salmon Filet. Russ loved his share of the salmon filet. Peter came out of hiding while I was cleaning out their litter boxes. Peter found the Salmon Filet that I had placed by his heated bed. Peter loved the Fancy Feast Salmon Filet from Chewy.Com. When I was getting ready to leave the house he was licking his lips completely clean. I noticed the other cats kept licking their lips clean also. They all looked at me as if they were smiling at me. The Fancy Feast Salmon Filet had the same smell as the salmon I had eaten the night before. My cats absolutely adored and found the Fancy Feast Salmon Filet from Chewy.Com to be a chefs masterpiece made just for them to enjoy.

The Purpose Of Life

Many of us wonder what our purpose is in life. Our purpose could be to raise a family. We are all put on earth for many different purposes. A Farmer raises crops that will feed other people or animals. We have a wide variety or professions that all serve to benefit others in many different and necessary ways.

We are all put on earth to do as much good in our lifetimes as is humanly possible. We help others with missions and sharing our understanding and support for those that are less fortunate than we are.

We are all children of God and we should help God each and everyday. We can do that by being kind, compassionate, loving and caring individuals that help God take care of his flock. Bring Joy, Peace, Hope and Love into peoples lives everyday. Hold a door open for someone, carry something that is heavy, send a card, call them, spend quality time with another person and always make yourself available to people that just need a little something to make their day a little extra special.

Life can be a stepping stone into the next spiritual life. Try to learn something new everyday that will benefit and help others. Reach out to people as you both will end up in a better spot for doing so. Think of one thing you can do everyday to make the world a better place for you and I to live in.

We should use as few pesticides as possible. Pesticides get into our water supply and poison us and also kill animals and our honey bees that are necessary for pollination of  fruit trees, garden goods, crops, flowers and more. If you make a mess on planet earth clean it up and help save our planet for generations to come.

Just some of my own personal thoughts on the purpose of life.

Why Did My Mother Cat Abandon Her Kittens ?

A first time mother cat may abandon her kittens because she has not yet learned how to care for them. Most of my cats have always taken care of their kittens by the time they are two years old.

I have had a mother cats carry one kitten away. A mother cat will carry a sickly kitten away and abandon it to save the rest of her healthy litter of kittens. I have tried in the past to put the kitten that she has carried off back with the other kittens. Most of the time the kitten that I put back has died.

A mother cat naturally knows if one of her kittens is sickly and will not make it. I have had mother cats move all of their kittens except one kitten. They have moved the healthy kittens to a different building with an area that had clean straw.

Mother cats may abandon all of their kittens if they are not feeling well. Your cat may not be producing enough milk to feed all of her kittens.

If your mother cat gets frightened by strange people or wild animals coming into the area where her kittens are she may abandon them. Cats do not like any sudden changes in their environment or their surroundings. Try to keep strangers away from a mother cat and her kittens as this may upset her terribly.

A mother cat always tries to take care of her kittens to the best of her ability. She will naturally abandon one that is sickly. She does not want the disease that one kitten has to spread to her healthy kittens and kill them off by the disease entering their bodies.  Mother cats are very protective of their young.

Next time you see a mother cat abandoning a kitten you will know she has a good reason for doing so.

Fame and Putting On Aires

Do you need fame in your life to be happy  ?  All of us want to be mentioned for our accomplishments now and then. I would not want to be in the limelight all of the time.  I think it is better to get things accomplished without fanfare and a lot of exposure. People will notice what you have done anyway without making a spectacle  of yourself.

I have noticed people walk in late to a meeting and then have the nerve to walk way to the front as if to say notice me now. If you come late to a meeting sit in the back and you will still be noticed by someone. Help people and do not expect something in return. Gods good stewards should help all people gracefully and quietly.

If you live for fame only it will not satisfy you for long. Fame is short lived and forgotten with time. Help the oppressed, give gleefully, live cheerfully, bring joy, peace, love and hope to every ones path that you cross in a day.

Do not be boastful, jealous or callous, be genuine to yourself and others in all things that you do. It is better to be seat yourself at the back of the table and have them call you to the front of the table. If you would sit in front and then be told to sit in the back you would feel embarrassed. Let good things come to you and  always look for good things in people and good people. Look for good and be good in all that you do to help others. Evil will come to you on it own so be cautious as to not let evil enter your life as it will want to embrace you and encompass you. Do good and be good in all that you do and wish to accomplish in your life. The grace of God will lead you to new heights.

Things That Will Please Your Cat

My cats like to eat a little bit of fresh or dried catnip now and then. Cats love a little tuna canned in water or a wonderful cat treat. Garfunkel loves to eat a few fresh spinach leaves in the morning when I make an omelet. Cats love to lick out cottage cheese containers or yogurt containers. Our neighbors once had a cat that loved to eat cooked asparagus. My cats like canned cat food that has pumpkin in it.

My cat Kohl loves it when I comb out his coat with a large comb for cats. All I have to do is show Kohl the comb and he comes running to have his coat combed out. My cats also like to have their hair worked on with a glove that has rubber barbs on it to remove their old cat hair.

All of my cats love their circle ball toys and catnip stuffed toys. For an interactive toy my cats love to play with the robotic cat Zoomer. Conrad likes to work for his cat treats. I put his cat treats in a dispenser that gives your cat a treat if they manage to roll it right to get the treat to come out of the hole in the dispenser.

Cats like fresh water and a clean litter box everyday. All of my cats love heated beds or heated windowsill beds. Cats like fresh towels in their boxes that they like to sleep in. My outdoor cats like a can of cat food to help them withstand the cold weather along with their heated beds and water dish.

Cats love to be held and snuggled on their terms. My cats love to be scratched under the shin and have their backs rubbed gently. Cats love to curl up on your bed at night with you. I hope you and your cat can please each other for many years to come.

Be An Advocate For Family Or Friends To Help Keep Them Safe

When you are sick and alone you need an advocate that you can count on to help keep you safe and sound. When you are in the hospital your advocate  will make sure you are getting the right care for your particular situation. Your advocate will make sure you are clean and the Doctor’s are doing what they should be doing to get you back to your old self once again.

You need someone to check on you and see that you have dry bedding throughout the night and that you are getting better and not getting worse day by day. Check on your loved one often and at different times throughout the day. Make sure they are getting enough food and water to drink throughout the day. I have noticed that peoples water has been sitting way across the room where they cannot even reach it.

Any behavior that harms or hurts a person is inhuman and not acceptable. A person has a right to a dry bed all throughout the night and to have a glass of water that they can get to easily 24/7. Advocates must make sure their are not bruises, bedsores,feces, or other signs of neglect on their loved ones.

Remember you will be sick or old someday yourself. Ask yourself do I want to be treated this way when I am sick or elderly. If you cannot handle being a care giver than don’t take that kind of a job that will make you miserable and make the people that you sup-possibly taking care of miserable beyond belief.

Always keep the Golden Rule close to your heart and live by it day after day: ” Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You ” God wants his children to act as he would towards people that cannot help themselves. Advocates keep Gods flock safe and sound throughout life’s storms. Honor those that are sick and elderly with the upmost respect.

Sibley Birds Guide Second Edition Book from Chewy.Com

I as provided Sibley Birds Guide Second Edition Book from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

The second edition Sibley Birds Guide book  is completely revised with more than 600 new paintings and 111 rare species added, new information on behavior and habitat, and more tips on finding species in the field. The book is written and illustrated by David Allen Sibley.

The illustrations in the book are 15 % to 20 %  larger for better detail. There are nearly 7000 digitally remastered paintings for better print quality. The attention to extended detail on every bird is exquisite and extensive.

I have learned to look at birds more carefully and pay more attention to their wing patterns and markings making it easier for me to identify them correctly the next time I see one. I also pay closer attention to their bill length and the overall size of the bird and learning their songs and calls.

I have learned what kind of trees or brush attract the birds in my own backyard. Some birds like older mature trees and others prefer pine trees. Some of my birds like to eat dried up berries on some of my hedges. Older trees are a good area for birds to go that like eating insects and ants that are found in and or on older mature trees.

The Sibley Guide to Birds from Chewy.Com is a must have guide for the basic bird lover. I love how the Sibley Bird Guide shows you the pictures of the young birds and then the fully mature picture of the bird. It is interesting to see how the coloring in their feathers changes as they become more mature birds.

I have learned what kind of birds like to eat at bird feeders.  I learned that if their feathers are laying down or up it means that they are cold, scared or completely relaxed. The Sibley Birds Guide is my far the best bird guide book I have ever owned. I keep it by my chair which is located by my picture window and my bird feeders for quick and easy reference.

My cats are delighted that I have the Sibley Bird guide book from Chewy.Com. With the new guide book our caregiver can attract more birds at her bird feeder to keep us entertained throughout the day.

Kite Flying Feb. 17th, 2018 in Clear Lake, Iowa

I have watched the Kites Flying over the Lake in Clear Lake, Iowa for years. The kites our not our Grandparents kites from years ago. Kites were given away at the clothing stores years ago or you could buy them at the five and dime. Long gone are the days of your just plain homemade kite.

I had a dime store kite and a large balloon kite that I would fly in the country when I was growing up. My Grandfather made an old fashioned kite for me out of small pieces of wood and paper. It worked fine and it had tail feathers on it also. My Father also made kites for me to fly when I was kid. My Father would get free kites from the local clothing stores when he was a kid.

I interviewed a man that was flying a kite over Clear Lake. I told him I was very impressed with his Eagle look a like kite. His kite took off to new heights quickly. He said he started out with a smaller kite but he wants to get a larger one each and every year.

The cost of modern kites is astonishing and has become an expensive hobby for people that they look forward to doing every year. The man I talked to enters competitions for the largest and swiftest and most unique kite. He had come in at first place twice. He had an extra large kite that looked like an old prehistoric bird and also a kite that looked like a movie car that came in 1st.

He told me he had a total of ten kites. If the strings or something else breaks on his kite he has a back up kite ready to fly. He started out with a small kite that resembled an Owl  and he fell in love with the hobby of flying kites.

I bet he wins this years competition because he pays attention to quality and top speed kites and it is his passion and part of who he is to rise to new heights every year of his life.
