Today’s free printable is a 4 by 6 photo size floral warrior motivational printable that says You are a WARRIOR for encouragement on the days you need to be a WARRIOR.
I need to be a warrior this week. Do you need to be a warrior this week too?
My struggles recently include trying to save some sick kittens from the litters we have rescued from semi-feral stray cats in the neighborhood. Two kittens died last week. We are so heartbroken.
I reached out in all the ways I knew to get help, but with extremely limited funds and energy, it has been tough. I found some people who do this kind of thing all the time, neutering feral cats and saving their kittens to tame and get adopted.
And they told me, that sometimes they die and there is nothing you can do. If I would have taken them to a shelter, I was told, they would have most likely put them down right away because they are SO OVERCROWDED already.
But it is still so very heartbreaking. And it is hard to get on with my other responsibilities with a heavy heart.
The back story: some neighbors kicked their un-spayed cats out of their home when they had a baby. These two cats had litters. Then we moved into this place, and before we knew it, these two cats and their female babies were all pregnant. I don’t understand fully how people can do this, and watch the kittens be born and scamper in and out of their yard. We were told that kittens from previous litters have disappeared and even been hit by cars. SO sad!
I don’t want to judge, because I am not in their shoes.
But I care about the lives of these animals, and I feel compelled to do what I am able. So far we have caught and tamed 14 kittens, and have neutered 3 of the adults. We have 2 more kittens to try to catch, and at least 5 more adults to neuter and spay.
But then doing that has been requiring that I press through, push forward, grit my teeth and do this stuff. To do what I can to DO GOOD for these animal lives within my sphere, on top of already struggling with the human lives and situations in my life!
(Just wanted to add that in the midst of this difficult task, it has been a blessing to interact with these kittens. We are trying to focus on the good in this situation! They have a way of bringing fun and joy into our lives. My children and I are animal people, and being with animals nourishes our souls. But sharing the fullness of this blessing will have to be for another blog post.)
Today’s post is to share this floral warrior motivational printable with you, to remind you that You are a WARRIOR. Your struggle is probably very different than mine. But your life requires that you step up and keep fighting.
And I hope I can encourage you. You can do it. Because:
You are BRAVE.
You are STRONG.
You are BEAUTIFUL.
You are a WARRIOR.
