I have needed to fill the bird feeder nearly every day. Sometimes when I look out at the feeder I see half dozen birds hanging on the perches. My cats are entertained by the birds who they can see but not eat. I think a lot of the birds are juveniles because their coloring is off. I love to watch them, that's something I picked up from my parents.

Today is my cat Lily's 10th birthday. I still remember the day that I adopted her, she was such a little kitten. She has been through thick and thin with me, always by my side, always filled with unconditional love. We will always have a special bond.

My grief has been closer to the surface lately, I'm not sure why. But grief is like the ocean; it ebbs and flows. I've learned that there is no expiration date on grief, it just is. And it's different for each and every one of us. I've also found some solace here.

Hi Robyn, thanks for your comment, the reason for half of Europe was given to Stalin was that he agreed to help the US with the Japaneese. Unfortunately he was a bit too late to do so, and the Iron Curtain was already in place.
Just like Lily, I love to watch birds also, this is their moulting season, that's why they're colorless for few weeks.
I'm the same way with grief, it comes and goes, but sometimes stays longer...

Robyn, Tried to find you on Facebook but was unsuccessful. Will keep trying. Maybe you will have better luck adding me if you want too. Just search for Christine Rickard Kelley and you should get a hit.

In the mean time take care and know I am thinking of you. This grief thing sucks.

Chris, I couldn't find you on FB. I checked my own profile and I had it locked down so that I wouldn't turn up in searches.
