When my daughter first introduced me to memes they were dominated a lot by “LOL cats” or maybe that is just what she often found and shared with me. Back in 2009 Pepsi released some limited edition aluminum bottles, one of those bottles had LOL on it. So it was an idea of mine to create our very own LOL cat with the cat we had at that times (he has since passed away). It was to be a picture used for our daughters birthday card. And since the “can haz” phase of memes was happening this is what I came up with…
My own personal LOL cat. Now I could search the internet for a funnier meme, but this one is special to me, especially since he is no longer with us. Do you have a LOL cat picture?

The photography was old and worn.
The image was black and white
And had a grainy aspect to it.
It was all I had of him
The only thing left.
He was a fading memory
And I held the photo tight
Trying to hold on to him
For another lonely day.
Pretty poised pink petunias
Paint the patio picture of
Perfectly polished plants
As March begins I continue with my goal to find happiness and gratitude every day. There is at least some small thing that can bring a smile and give you a moment to be grateful for. Please join me in looking for the good moments of the day … it would be great if you would share them in the comments or on your own blog. Be aware of the little wonders of the day!
If “the antidote for fifty enemies is one friend.” (Aristotle) then the smiling picture of a best friend must be a cure for depression. Out of the blue today my friend sent me a picture of himself… and he was actually smiling in it; that is kind of a rarity. I have struggled with fatigue again today and am still stiff and sore from my walk… I was definitely down today and that smile really made me feel good for a while.
Just to know someone is thinking of you from time to time is enough to help improve a mood some days. Today has been a bit of a struggle, but I got through it. And it was nice to get a smile sent to me, it made me happy and I smiled too. I am so grateful to have my best friend in my life… he has been quite a lifeline for me in tough times. Not that he will read this but, I love you Jack!
A yellow blooms face
Smiling so brightly at me
I must capture it
