I'm so glad. Because if He didn't, it'd be easy to feel silly asking for little things. I also learned through my life that most of our joy comes from the little every day moments. So I'm asking God for a fluff and nonsense dream right along with those practical needs because this one is important to my little moments.
I grew up having indoor pets. I particularly love cats. Why? Because as a little girl, I was given a kitten when I was six years old. That kitten grew up and literally went through life with me. As the child of a schizophrenic, I had to learn to soothe myself and manage my own sense of well-being. I think a lot of children are put in situations where the parent isn't available. Childhood becomes a difficult journey for those kids. For me, my kitten turned into a friend for eighteen years. She was my God-given companion.
Now so much older, I've found I feel more comfortable on a daily basis having a cat around that's bonded to me. It soothes me and helps me stay calm. I get great joy out of friendship with a cat. I think God likes that or He wouldn't have created cats.
Having lost mine a few weeks back, I'm beginning my search for a new companion. Researching breeds and my family needs, I've wanted a certain kind of cat for a long time to help with visitor's allergic reactions and personal family feelings. One that won't mind a regular bath to cut down on dander build up. One that's big enough for a good hugging. One that's fun to train (a hobby for the pure laughter and joy of it) and calm around the home.
So what am I asking God for?
Lord, I'd like a Siberian male kitten. Would you like me to have one? If so, I'll leave all the details up to you and act when you say so.
