Being Present for Kyla

She sent me a gift. And a letter.

She sent me a gift. And a letter.

OK. Today is my first installment of being present for Kyla. You know what I mean.

Being “present” – and I just thought of this, so I think it’s pretty clever – being present means that there will be no moping, no worrying, no sadness, no crying eyes. It means being in the moment with happy, supportive thoughts, words and deeds. To help Kyla and her peeps.

Got it?

OK. So, my being present for Kyla means that I’m smiling today because I’m thankful she came into my life and loves me. See, a few years back she sent me a box of cookies. She made them herself. Really. She did. And she wrote me a letter asking if I’d be her Valentine. Can you believe that?

Of course I said, yes, but it was late because of the mailman. Don’t get me started. You can read about it here, but I’m not dwelling on sadness and bad postal service today. Nope. Not me.

Today, years later, she’s still my Valentine. And she’ll always be my Valentine.

That makes me happy and I hope it makes her happy, too.

I’ll never forget those cookies….oh me. This brings a smile to my face.

What You Learned Today:

  • My girlfriend is, well…she’s…let’s just say she’s in the twilight of her wonderful life and she needs our help to stay happy and strong.
  • She’s loved by everybody. Including me.
  • But I love her more than anybody.
  • We don’t live in the same town or even in the same state.
  • But that doesn’t matter.
  • Scotties can be close that way.
  • So, I consider it my duty to stay positive.
  • You can, too.
  • I think it helps to stay positive. But from her hilarious post today, she’s already on the positive trail. Check it out. You’ll bark out loud.

Here I am Kyla!

  1. that’s great Stuart, you are a true friend. I will be there for Kyla too and I will bring her joy and good mood and tons of power. that post of Kyla was a hoot. I first swallowed and I had to fight with some tears… butt: as I read the last sentences I thought I have to burst with laughter…

  2. Wish there was a “love” button I could click. Good boy, Stuart.

  3. Kyla says:

    I’m blushing. The red is coming right through my brows and beard.

  4. You’re a most special boy Stuart – I know Kyla is VERY happy you became her “forever Valentine” – those cookies she made look delish! We will do like you and celebrate each day Kyla is here and send her lots of kitty purrs (they are special like your Arrroooooo’s are!).

    Love and Hugs, Sammy

    How do you know how much I love Kyla? You cannot say “But I love her more than anybody.”
    My love is warmer than the warmest sunshine, softer than a sigh
    My love is deeper than the deepest ocean, wider than the sky
    My love is brighter than the brightest star that shines every night above
    And there is nothing in this world that can ever change my love
    and if you want to go country
    My love is deeper than the holler, stronger than the river
    Higher than the pine trees growin’ tall upon the hill
    My love is purer than the snowflakes that fall in late December
    And honest as a robin on a springtime window sill
    And longer than the song of a whippoorwill
    So there I love Kyla just as much!!
    Sweet William The Scot
