Heads up for the tsunami of karma kickback



I was somewhat unhappy to not be able to take my scheduled day off last Friday in order to celebrate the turning of the baktun. I consoled myself that some people think a mistake was made and the the baktun really would turn on Sunday. Over the weekend, as I rested on Saturday, I felt vibrations running through all of me...I've always attributed them to prana. Sunday I was too busy cooking to feel them...

On Monday at work, I met the woman who sits across from me. She is single and 30s or 40ish. She was a little shell-shocked. Apparently she works in some fashion with a homeless shelter. They called her last weekend and told her, "Don't feel pressured to say yes." A homeless 16 year old was about to be thrown out of the shelter on Christmas Eve because his 3 week limit was up. So she brought him home. By the end of the weekend he asked her if he could stay with her. She said she'd consider it, but he had to understand that there would be rules and if he broke them, there'd be consequences. He said, "You'd send me back to the shelter." "No, no, no!!!!" He asked if she let him stay, could he call her, "Mom?" We were all breaking down at this point. She said she dropped him off at school this morning, and saw him jumping up and down, ecstatic because he has a home.

Yesterday I was again unhappy that I was stuck working on Christmas Day. I was grumbling to myself about it as I drove to the hospital. And then I "heard" the message, "It is inside you now. You don't need to celebrate on any particular day. You can celebrate on any day!" And suddenly I felt at peace.

Around mid-morning, I felt Polly's presence very strongly and felt myself holding her. (Also, this morning, halfway between asleep and awake, I saw her proudly leaving the barn with a mouse. I do believe she is at the Happy Hunting Grounds with the Great Mother Kitty now.... )

Later on, the lead hematology tech told me that there was a job opening and that maybe I should apply for it. I responded that surely they would hire (Saint) Adam first. She answered that they already did, and then the other (better) hospital countered with a higher offer, so he's finishing this month and gone! They rolled out the red carpet for him, never even hinted he'd ever have to touch night shift, couldn't hire him fast enough (never even posted the job!)....only to be dumped before the month was out!!!!!

She spent much of the rest of her time there asking me how I like my new job and trying to be nice. Meh. Too little too late, suckers.

Later on I heard her whispering something with the lab assistant, who had just asked me to write up a mistake the ER had made. It turns out that our evil lab manager had one of her psycho fits again....this time in the ER at an ER employee, whom she reduced to tears!!!!!!! I can only hope that a certain key ER doctor witnessed her meltdown and starts to get an understanding of what we're forced to deal with here!

Finally, I read on GD yesterday about how holiday sales were very disappointing. Well, today I took Polly's last cans of cat food and also a 12-pack of dogfood I bought by accident a couple weeks ago to the shelter. I was surprised to find their parking lot jammed. The volunteers were ecstatic...they had already re-homed 12 cats in one day. I made it 13 when I left with a cat named Bella Donna. Like Polly, Bella has been at the shelter for a year...she too is the one nobody wants. Polly is sweet and loving, but plain and had liver disease. They couldn't believe she had lived 7 years with her medical history. Bella Donna is a beautiful dilute tortie, but very unfriendly. I may go back and get Jasmine to keep Bella company. Jasmine is also independent, but friendlier, so the 2 of them may work out better than just one.

As I was leaving, a young woman was climbing the stairs with a cat carrier in hand. "Are you adopting a cat?" "Yes!" Smiles all around. I think people are figuring it out. Don't enslave yourself to debt buying plastic junk made by slaves to enrich a few. Instead, love.....

2. May Polly be healed in Kitty Heaven...

and blessings for you, for adopting another kitty.

And, whoo hoo, if certain nasty people get the kick-back that they deserve.

5. Really? You hope for revenge?

 

I don't. And I don't think that makes me a saint, either. I guess it's cuz I'm not a Scorpio like SOME people...

When I have been treated unfairly, I hope that the Truth is revealed to the person involved. I wish no one any "kick-back." I am part of God but I am a Drop of that Sea. The Sea knows the whole deal; NOT me...

4. Our county animal shelter is experiencing the same thing. It was a very high kill

facility but, due to exposure on facebook, the hard work of volunteers, and our speaking out in the community, things are starting to turn around. Good on you for adopting an independent cat. She just might turn out to be a sweetheart. I fostered a little cat earlier this year and, gradually, she is becoming friendlier and will sleep in my lap for long stretches. She doesn't get along with my other (both female) cats, so I'm thinking of getting her a young male kitten in hopes she will bond with him. She adored my huge male cat who died a few months ago. Since then, she has been without companionship. Good luck with your kitty tribe. May they all get along!
Edit to add: Guess it's obvious that I'm a foster failure.
