Meezer Monday

When I manage to post on Meezer Monday's they are going to be about my much missed sister, Stormie. Today's post is about a wonderful thing that someone did for Stormie and us.

The Meowmies have been members of Meezer.com for about 10 years now and they have always had a friendship with one particular lady on there who has been around since pretty much the first day my Meowmies have been posting on the message board. Her name is Jeanie and she is such a kind and generous soul. Even though they have 'known' each other for about 10 years, the Meowmies have never met Jeanie because she lives on the other side of the world in Australia. About 5 or 6 weeks before Storm passed away Jeanie wrote an email to my Meowmie saying the following:

"I have a little cat statue that I bought at the Oxfam shop. It's a dear little thing, made of sandstone I think. Anyway, I painted a little X on it's nose and it has a tealight candle next to it which I light daily. It sits on my special table in the lap of my Balinese Buddha statue with it's lotus water fountain. I think of Storm daily and remember to send healing thoughts to her (and you) each time I pass by."

STORM'S TABLE

THE STATUE WITH THE PAINTED 'X' ON IT'S NOSE

STORMIE AND THE 'X' ON HER NOSE


We were so touched by this act of kindness, so unexpected and so thoughtful and caring. Jeanie continued to light candles throughout Storm's final battle, sending us positive thoughts and energies at a very difficult time for us all. So, we want to thank Jeanie for creating this lovely little oasis of candle-light and positive energy in her home, for us. It was a very special thing to do.

What a kind and caring person. You guys are blessed to know someone like that. There seems to be fewer and fewer of such folks around.

Oh what a wonderful thing to do for Stormie! Maybe you have met some very special people, but that's only because you are special too and Stormie just helped us all learn that... May her special brand of love go on for ever!
