Over the last year,
has said to me many times “Mom, I wish I had a cat.” Eden
So, we set out to find her one. This last summer, off we went to the pound and looked at the cats, but ended up adopting a dog, a beautiful collie/golden retriever mix named Luna. Up one dog, but still no cat.
I love this dog!
A few weeks ago on a cold evening in January, I was dropping my son Reef off at basketball practice. As we pulled into the parking lot,
just out of the blue said, “Mom, if I had a cat I would love her and she would be my best friend. I would take care of her and she would sleep with me every night.” I knew how Eden felt about a cat and so heart-felt was her little desire, so specific were her motives, I recommitted to doing what I needed to do to get a cat for her. “ Eden , we will find you a cat,” I professed again, this time hoping I would follow through on my commitment. Eden
stayed in the car with her older brothers, I walked Reef across the parking lot to his practice. His basketball league practices at a park and the court is outdoors. I wrapped my sweater tightly around my body and watched for a moment as Reef, in his short-sleeved shirt ran up and down the court. “Grab your jacket,” I’d said to him as we left for practice, but in my experience, the only thing little boys notice when it’s cold and windy outside is that it’s an adventure. Eden
Reef’s practice would last for about an hour, so I was going to run up the street to Costco and grab a few groceries. I thought I’d make a quick potty stop and ran into the park bathroom. Those of you who live in
know the restroom at the city parks are sparse – cement floors, steel toilet seats and grimy. Well, in the very back corner of that freezing bathroom I saw it. A cat. A white and gray, purring, warm, fluffy, beautiful cat. The only thing missing was a bright red bow. Arizona
I’ve seen stray cats. They don’t want to be approached, the are dirty and scared. This cat looked like it was put there just for
. I bent down and reached out my hand to her. Her pink moist nose touched my skin and it was love at first sight. I reached out and she allowed me to pick her up. When I walked out of the bathroom, Eden was watching from the car. Eden
She didn’t say a word.
, Heavenly Father gave you your cat,” I said, believing all good things come from God. Eden
She waited as I approached her and then, through the car window I handed her the cat.
“Her name is Princess,”
finally said. Eden
I just couldn’t believe it. My daughter had manifested the cat, this playful, heaven-sent, tender, gentle cat.
The cat looks to be about six months old, not a kitten, but not yet full grown.
Disclaimer: The cat does not have a chip.
What I find interesting, is almost every time Eden and I are out, we now see stray cats. “Can we have that one,”
will say as we see a stray cat in a parking lot or in a random neighborhood. Finally, I had to laugh out loud because I realized her positive energy and desire for a cat continues to manifest cats. I finally said to her, “ Eden , you need to stop desiring a cat because the universe keeps granting them to you.” Eden
I’ve been listening to Abraham Hicks now for about a year. If you haven’t already, take a listen to The Law of Attraction. It’s life changing.
