Marvelous Monday!

Oh, it has been a really crazy busy time here in the Magnolia household ... I apologize for getting side-tracked from regularly blogging last week and hope this week I'll be a little better at staying in touch.

Today is Marvelous Monday ... a windy cool day here in Southern Ontario.  I'm not complaining though because we have been enjoying such a wonderful hot summer that I don't begrudge a few days here and there of cool weather.

On this Marvelous Monday, I am especially thankful for my cat's recovery!   On Saturday, my little Tiger just seemed to turn a corner in her recovery and suddenly we looked up to see her walking almost 100% normal!  She's still "wobbly" so Mr. Magnolia says she walks a little bit like she's had too much to drink, but she's actually standing up completely on her back legs when she walks now so she no longer looks like a raccoon when she walks.  She has been only able to hold herself up about 3/4 of the way on her back legs up until now so she has been walking with a strange rolling, hunched-over gait.  I can't begin to tell you the feeling of joy that flood through me when I saw her stand up totally normal on Saturday and start to walk with like a healthy cat!  Every time I see her standing up properly now I get the same flood of joy in my heart.  I really didn't think she would ever walk normally again!

So on this Marvelous Monday, I'm very grateful to all of you for your prayers and kind thoughts towards my cat, and hope that somehow each one of you will able to see a little miracle in your own lives, to give you hope and cheer your hearts.

  1. Wonderful news about Tiger. I'm rejoicing with you!!


  2. Truly a happy day to hear that Tiger is doing so well.

  3. Thanks so much for your kind and lovely comments on my post today.

    You mentioned that you do not have biological children. I know many couples are childless by choice, but I also know a couple of sweet gals who are childless not by choice. So, I don't know your situation, but I did want to say that if the pain of infertility is a path you are walking, I am willing to offer prayer and encouragment as you do. I have spent the last 16 years of my life with fertility issues. (Although easily conceiving my 2 kids, we've had fertiilty issues ever since.) To say it has been painful is the understatement of the century. Truly, there are few pains more intense than infertiity, as only those who have walked the path can know. You attend baby shower after baby shower, rejoicing with the happy momma, but dying a little bit on the inside every time, as the child that has been in your heart for so long never becomes a reality. So, if you are walking such a path, my shoulder is always available. (And if you're not, then just disregard this post.)


  4. Dear Ro,
    I'm rejoicing with you over the recovery of Tiger, and keep praying that full and complete recovery for him is just around the corner. Lots of love, and holding him close to you surely does the trick... it works even for humans, so why not for our furry loved ones?

    I scrolled down a bit to read a few of your previous posts. Loved the Aynsley tea cups, and the picture of your garden after the rain!
    So lovely. I do love that picture in your sidebar of your favorite reading spot.

    Blessings on your day, Ro.


  5. Wonderful news! Your Tiger is a scrapper. I am so happy for you b/c I know how much this eases your heart!
