Daily Reminder # 547

Well, to be honest, I'm not much in the mood for posting this evening. Tired and cranky. I have been pretty pleased with myself regarding Tara Grace. I got two doses of anti-inflammatory medicine into her with minimal strife and a dose of antibiotic. So, a couple of hours ago, I went forth with the next syringe of antibiotic feeling a bit too cocky. It was a cruel battle. She squirmed and tried to get away, I kept dragging her back, doing the whole nape of the neck hold that's supposed to make them calm. No such luck. She squirmed, she got away, I dragged her back. Finally, I thought I had the syringe at her mouth... I pushed the button. She twisted. I don't think that any of it got into her. Most went onto my hands. And of course I feel horribly guilty about torturing a tiny 5 pound creature who is as gentle as a can be. Looking at the bottle, I'm thinking there are two more doses. Agggghhhh.  Didn't take any pictures today either, but did get this in the mail. I think it's funny.


Maybe I should have read Neale Donald Walsch's What God Wants You to Know from today before I approached Tara this evening.  Less trying to overpower her and more trying to find a way to let it be her choice. (I dream, I think, but you never know....)

On this day of your life, dear friend, 
I believe God wants you to know...
...that happiness never derives from power over others.

Thomas Jefferson made that observation and he was right.
Seek, therefore, power with, not power over.
This includes people in the world, people in your home,
and whoever else may be in your bed...

The best way to experience power (or anything)
is to give it away. Make someone else powerful and
you become twice as powerful as you were before.
Make someone else loved and you become twice as loved.
Make someone else feel good and you feel twice as good.
It doesn't get any better than this. And it's all so... simple.
Love, Your Friend....

My heart goes out to you. I hate having to give medicines to our cats. I know it's for their own good but there's no way to get them to understand that. I hope the remaining doses get delivered ok.
