About Me

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Our favorite kitty, Addy has left this world. Amazingly Libby, the luckiest cat alive survived once again with a few minor injuries (she now has 2 lives left). Jeremy broke the cardinal rule at our house and drove away without finding two cats. Both were in his engine. Addy didn't make it and Libby cut her leg and burned half her tail. Haydn was unfortunately there when Jeremy pulled Addy out of the engine and she just burst into tears. We had to tell her that Addy was in a warm and fun place where she could play with Jesus and all the other kitties that didn't survive the Steele household. So here is a memoir to Addy.... you will be missed!

Oh, your poor kids! What a great mommy to tell them that they are with Jesus. ;)

Oh, that just sucks! Poor kitties and kiddos. And poor Jeremy too. I'm sure he feels awful. Thank goodness for the gospel and the belief that we will see our loved ones again... even the critters.

Your kitty looked just like the one I lost when we lived in Utah. His name was Gris. We were not allowed to have him live in our home with us, so he was an outside cat. One day, he never returned. I dont know what ever happened to him and I remember looking for him for days. I hope he's playing with your sweet cat.
