I blame the cat. Last night I crawled into bed after a very busy and productive day. I remembered that my new attitude was “Not too tired to pray.” and so I did start to pray. And then the cat curled up beside my pillow, nestled his head on my palm and started to purr. I stroked his ears and told him what a wonderful cat he was and then…. we both fell asleep. Such was the lure of a soft warm body and the peacefulness of a purring cat.
This morning I remembered my renewed commitment and apologized to God. I blamed the cat, and then with a sense of wryness confessed to my Lord, thatit really wasn’t much of an excuse. I could have prayed, the cat wouldn’t have known the difference between the words, “you are such a good cat” and “I thank you God for the blessings of this day.”
So tomorrow I leave to spend 2 weeks with my two gorgeous grandsons. I no doubt will be tired at the end of each day. That’s two whole weeks to practice my new attitude. I’ll try to report in on how it goes.
