Sara Groves, "Something Changed"
Mellie, who was first Drew's cat and then mine, died eleven years ago today. She meant all the world to me. I miss her every day, and I think of her every day. It is too hard to write about her now, so I will come back to this post and explain how a cat changed my life, and how a cat saved me.
I picked for this day a song about change, because, I had not wanted cats. But like the song says, "Something changed inside me!" And the song ends by saying: "Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Lord." That is exactly how I feel about the journey I have come with cats, and how grateful I am that something changed inside me.
Of all the souls I have known in this world, Mellie stands out as one that deserves Heaven.
