A SPARK OF PERSEVERANCE & PATIENCE

by Janet Blue on January 8, 2018

Sparks: #14

 

 

I cannot tell you which of the boys had the patience and perseverance to get this box for himself. What I can tell you is that each gave as good as he got. This tussle occurred prior to Cooper Murphy’s illness. He hasn’t been up to any wrestling matches.

Cooper Murphy asked me to let you know that he was a bit better yesterday. With Dad Tom back home, we were able to double-team him and get him to take his meds and have eye ointment applied. He did not get any sub-Q fluids. We will assess him daiily to see if he needs them.

He’d like to thank everyone for the purrs, prayers and POTP and would appreciate it very much if you can keep them coming for a few more days.

I believe focusing on patience and perseverance helps us figure out ways around those obstacles and difficulties. Or, it may give us time to put those obstacles into perspective. Cooper Murphy sounds like a trooper. I hope all your fur babies are well.

Amen. Yes. I can attest to this. It has been a rough start to the year, but I will not fold. I will persevere. I will take Clyde’s determination and strong spirit as my example. He is amazing.
Kenzie is better, responding to the antibiotics. She will be monitored. Everyone else is stable. Me? I am working on it. Sparks really is important to me right now. I need the inspiration and positive energy. Thank you. HUGS.

Is perserverance the same thing as being stubborn? If it is, then I’ve got it in spades! C’mon, Cooper Murphy…we want to hear you are back to tussling strength.

Love that photo! Sawyer and the Coop “rasslin” for box privileges. Doesn’t matter who wins – they ave having fun and that’s the important thing. We hope Cooper and Sawyer will be back to chasing each other around the house soon – We are hoping and purring that the meds fix Cooper up QUICKLY. No fun being sick……so GET WELL SOON COOP! We gingers are strong – right?

Love, Teddy
