On January 1st 2010 I adopted 2 kittens – Pickles and Snoopy. They were about 3 months old.
When I adopted them I was still in active addiction. I did not get clean until May 23rd 2010. I spent about 35 days away from home at a detox and a rehab on Cape Cod Massachusetts.
When I came home in July of that year Pickles and Snoopy were already about 9 months old.
I missed the kitten phase. I was unable to be present.
Thank you to god, today I am present for our new baby kitten Eve. We have only had her a day but I am deeply in love with her.
She follows me around. She is so tiny. So curious. So damn funny.
I did not realize that god was giving me something that I did not even know I had missed.
I can’t explain it but “in god’s time” is so true. Beauty comes and second chances when I am ready to receive and appreciate it.
This is god’s grace.
****side note ( it is also taking me 10x longer to write because she just loves jumping on my lab top out of nowhere!)
