Asking For An Act Of Kindness

For more than 6 years, we've had a blogging relationship with Courtney Macha. She posts over at Memoirs of a Feline Empress. We've linked back and forth and had lots of fun.

Courtney has had some really tough times lately. It would mean a lot to all of us here in the Catican if you popped over there and gave her some words of encouragement.

In more than 6 years of blogging, I think we've only skipped one day posting here. The Scratching Post has been the biggest non-family driving force in our lives. Everything else is a distant second.

To show you how much this means to us, we're going to stop blogging here until Monday so this post stays at the top and gives as many visitors as possible a chance to give Courtney a comment hug. Please, it won't take you more than a minute or two and it would mean so very much. If you would say a prayer for her, that would be great, too.

God bless and thanks for giving her support.
The Empress. One of the most beautiful photos of a cat ever taken.

I am so incredibly touched. I am north of Indianapolis, reading, crying, commenting...and driving. Not good. I am so grateful! Grateful for people like you an laughs like ours. Grateful for compassion, generosity, and encouragement. I am grateful that The Empress, in her role of Mother Superior, used her clout to grease my gate to heaven--or, at least into the heart of The Catican. I thank you so much for this. If I know Kukka-Maria, and we know I do, she is giving herself a high-4 today. You KNOW she will receive your moment of blogging silence as a form of feline worship. Ah...Kukka. She is one of the good ones! Thank you again. I am beyond moved by your outpouring of love.

It's selfish, but-- thank you, Courtney, for posting on it, and KT for linking.

My mom has a saying that God does a lot of very small miracles that we may not even notice, or that only one person ever sees. I think the lady at the store was one.

As I said, selfish-- I needed to be reminded of that.
