The Best Cat That Ever Lived

If you've read my blog or know me at all, you know that I'm crazy about my pets. Especially my cat, Sylvester. This post is going to be hard on me and I've waited a while to write it for that very reason.
Two weeks ago, I received a call. One that I was not expecting, nor did I want to get. "I think Sylvester got hit by a car up the road from your house. I am so very sorry." I held it together till after I was on the phone, then burst into tears. I was taking care of my kiddos at the time, so I called my mom and asked if she would go check to see if it really was him. I also don't think I could have handled seeing him like that. Moments seemed drag on as I feared the worst. Finally she got a hold of me and confirmed the worst. My precious cat was dead. I tried to be strong. I calmed down a bit later and the kids hugged me. I think I would have been in worse shape had it not been for their kind consolation.
We buried Sylvester under the big walnut tree in the back yard. I didn't do well for the next few days and it still breaks my heart from time to time. But I'm getting better. I have all kinds of sweet memories with that crazy cat of mine. He will forever be in my heart. I love you Sylvie.  
Some of my favorite pictures of my darling.

He was so overwhelmingly cute.


Peeping tom.

The day I brought him home. So tiny and so precious.
These pictures make me smile and I cherish all the precious memories. I loved my baby.

Music Monday, New Year Resolution by Graham Colton

I thought this song was appropriate since tomorrow is New Year's Eve. I enjoyed 2013, I really did. I was very blessed with the lessons I learned, people I met, friends and family that I grew closer too, opportunities I was able to participate in, and exciting events that happened. Honestly, this past year was kind of a redeeming year for me. I was coming out of a rough patch in 2012 and this year was my time to start anew. That's why this song is perfect. 2013, I solute you. Happy New Year's everyone!

This song is adorable and it's only appropriate because... Christmas is THIS WEEK!!!! Have I mentioned how much I love the holidays?? In case I haven't told you, I LOVE them. I look forward to it like a little kid. There's just something so magical about this time of year. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! I'll be stuffing my face with amazing food and laughing with my crazy family.

Music Monday, Say Something by A Great Big World ft. Christina Aguilera

So this song is kind of sad but it is so beautiful that I had to share. I really love Christina Aguilera's voice and the harmony on this just gives me chills. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
