Finally Friday Reflections

Well  friends, another year is drawing to a close.
As with most years,there was lots going on
In mum's family there have been additions and passages.
We are all getting older, but we still have lots to look
forward to  as 2019 approaches.

Georgia is giving an impression of an action shot.
Mum wants her to be more active so that is something
 she will work on with Georgia in the new year.
She will be entering her 16th year in 2019 and 
mum wants her to be healthy.

JJ is thinking about his 22 years.
He thinks he has had a pretty good life and looks forward
to sunny days and relaxing in a sunbeam.

At 9 years old, Julie just wants to hang out with mum
 and be wherever she is. Since mum rescued her 
and brought her home, she thinks mum is her person.
As long as she has mum and her porch, she is a happy kitty.

Naturally,  we are all happy cats when we think of
all our friends in the Blogosphere.
You are all amazing and we love following you.

On Christmas morning the sun was shining.
There were also small snowflakes falling.
As the sun shone through them, they sparkled
like diamonds. This picture shows the snowflakes, 
but sadly the sparkle does not show up.

As December draws close to an end and a new year
approaches, we often get reflective.
We reflect on the past year os memories
and wonder what is in store for the coming year.

On thing we will be reflecting on is our friend Tommy

Tommy was a wonderful,gentle friend to cats,dogs and people.
He loved to run in the fields chasing his ball
with his #1, and he loved his kitty family.
We love this picture taken on Christmas Day.
You can see the joy in Tommy's face
as he enjoys his present of a  prosciutto bone.
That shear joy is how we will remember him.

Sadly, Tommy had bad news during a Vet visit.
Yesterday, December 27,2018 Tommy
passed away, and walked into the light.

We are so sad for his family and we will miss this gentle soul.
Tommy, you will always be in our hearts.

I LOVE seeing Georgia's fabulous coat of multiple Tortie colors. She is a glowing gorgeous girl. Julie is too with her sleek black furs shining on health and beauty and mom loves your handsome self.

Mom was very saddened about Tommy. She adored him.

This is a lovely reflective post.
Tommy's passing is a very sad way to end the year, and I know #1 and The Chans miss him dreadfully.

That's so sad about Tommy having to go to the Bridge. He was a wonderful woofie, and we send purrs and prayers to his family.

We love your wishes for the new year, Georgia, JJ and Julie. Blessings and sunbeams for you all, and Mum, too!
