I was out on the front porch this afternoon with Max, our outside cat. He likes it when I come and enjoy the sun and sit with him for awhile. He and I are buddies.


He lays next to me and loves to be scratched and pet and talked with (and many times he has quite the story to share also). All of a sudden the song, ‘I’m in Heaven’ came to me. Yes, that describes Max perfectly when he’s getting the back of his neck scratched.


What this made me think of is it’s really the simple things in life that can help us to feel like ‘we’re in heaven’. Sometimes it is just having your neck rubbed or enjoying the sun on your face.


This is something we need to do more often – no matter who we are, or what we do. We need to do more things that allow us to feel like ‘we’re in heaven’.


Everyone will have a different take on this. And if you don’t know what it is that you can do, here’s a couple of hints. Look to animals and look to children. And if this isn’t giving you any ideas, look to when you were a child, playing with your pet.


You don’t have to go anywhere to feel as though ‘you’re in heaven’. You don’t have to spend money to feel like ‘you’re in heaven’.


Here are some ideas, taken straight from Max:

  • Lay in the sun
  • Stretch and move to another patch of sun
  • Walk around the porch, jump up on the chair to get out of the sun
  • Take another walk around the porch and find yet another patch of sun, with maybe some shade too
  • Take a nap, in the sun
  • Meow at the door until Sue comes out to sit with me and ‘allow her' to scratch behind the ears and the neck, while laying in the sun

OK, so Max is quite the fan of the sun. Well, so am I.


Go find your patch of sun and feel like you have your piece of heaven, wherever you are.


Angel Blessings to you.
