After learning that yesterday (Friday) at noon, the nineteen year old family cat died I think I need some cheering up. He died peacefully in his sleep and of course I’m sad but it’s also a relief as well. He wasn’t doing very well these past few weeks and I’m glad he’s no longer in any pain. And in a way, I sort of had a feeling the end was coming on Friday. Call it intuition but I wasn’t all that surprised to hear the news. I know he was just a cat, but Tommy was with the family for pretty much as long as I can remember and I’ll miss him.
That’s why the discussion for this week is entirely selfish. I want to know this: what makes you happy? Music? Family? Pets? Friends? Simple things, like sleeping in on a Sunday or re-reading your favourite book?
