Aw....Mondays and More

Mister Kitty says Aw....Mondays. He's too comfy sound asleep behind the recliner so I do not dare disturb his rest! He ran out the back door with the puppies at 5 o'clock this morning. He is a scaredy cat. He does not like a noise outdoors so he runs back into the house.  Do you know that a "scaredy cat" is defined as a timid person?
A colorful Love is.... it is just beautiful. My husband is kind and faithful and patient. It was easy to figure him out!
This was just too cute not to share.
Our faith is the greatest gift getting through all these days waiting and praying for better ones to return.
I believe in faith over fear and said this the very first day I heard people freaking out. None of us want to be taken away by this virus. No one wants to lose a loved you. I choose to trust the Lord. I do not have much faith in people. Especially those filled with meanness and hatred. I think we need to come together and stop pointing fingers. The express "it is what it is" has never been more true. You can not change what you do not know so be gentle and kind and spread kindness and love.
This is a photo of the infamous 1921 flood that hit my hometown when my parents were just small children. Their faith and perseverance brought them through those difficult times.
My folks lived through the Greet Depression as well. Again they relied on their faith and they persevered.
Stay home and stay put. We should find creative ways to enjoy this time. We've been watching old TV programs like Gunsmoke, Green Acres, MASH,The Brady Bunch. These were made when times were simple. People did not worry about offending someone with their talk and no one took offense to what the subject on programs were.

We had to take some cash to our credit union today.  There were ten cars ahead of us as opposed to the dozens on Saturday. My hubby is a very patient person unless he sees people unprepared for this transaction. So I entertained him with Roger Miller songs including hand gestures. It made the 24 minute trip worthwhile. We left with smiles.

This is a serious virus but much of our 'staying home' is in our attitude. You are so right.....take a positive attitude, stay calm, and this will end. My parents lived through so much and I figure we can stay home for as long as it takes. Hubby does make the run to store with gloves, mask, and sanitizer. My dad was a 19yo British soldier in WWII. Captured at Dunkirk and held in German prison camps for 4 years. His ankle and jaw were broken. My mom grew up in Belgium and my Granny worked with the Belgium underground hiding British and American soldiers. Belgium was German occupied at that time. Other generations have experienced some tough times and we can win over this virus. Hubs and I have watched the old Chevy Chase and John Candy movies. They are so funny. We work in our yard, play cards, and laugh a lot. Have a blessed day. Patty McDonald

Yes, we need to remain positive and not panic. Turn off the news and quit listening to the fear mongers. We are staying home and doing what we're supposed to do. As you are.

Love the kitties.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Big hug, honey. ♥

I loved that old Roger Miller's song! Wish there were more music makers like him. Tom's been occupying himself watching the 'Grit' network of old westerns. I'm not a fan, but there's always YouTube and Prime video I can watch on my tablet with earphones. Whatever it takes, right? We're so blessed to have these choices at our fingertips … not available to our parents and theirs. Hugs!

Mister Kitty is a sweetie, very handsome! We always liked Roger Miller too, such a talent. Stay safe, healthy and virus-free.

Mister Kitty is a cutie. Every generation has hardships they get through with faith in God. XO

Such a beautiful kitty kat. You have a good attitude about the staying indoors. We all should so that we can end this thing sooner. Stay safe my friend and have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Yep, I chose faith over fear, too. I'm not saying I'm not human because we all find ourselves fighting that fear bug to keep it from digging its head under the skin for good. "It is what is" is the best way to think about it and as you pointed out others have faced similar crisis to survive. We're just too pampered but we'll get through it if we don't freak out, practice common sense stuff, and do a lot of praying. I love the 'fresh catnip' meme - so cute!
