Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

A Gift From God | Flash Post 342

Button, amidst all that is vile and abhorrent like the meToos, the rape and murder of girls as young as just a few months old, torture of women in their marital lives, etc, entered this tiny life into our lives to impart love and wonderment that I have only God to thank for.

Who are you talking about?

Who else can it be?


Of Course. From the day he made an entry and onwards, he’s only brought joy and entertainment to our lives.

But he’s also very naughty!

Naughtiness that keeps him and all of us occupied and amazed. Did you see what he was doing this morning?

You mean try and catch the clothes that we’re spinning in the washing machine?

Yes. I had to sit on the floor, despite my creaky old knees, and tape a video.

I also notice that he’s a toy for the family!

Absolutely. Have you watched him play with his reflection in the mirror? It’s hilarious.

I have also noticed how he drops small objects from tabletops and goes for them as if they were playing objects! He hits them with one paw, runs behind them before hitting them again with the other paw.

No wonder we call him Messi!

The name Messi is just right for him.

I also believe strongly that God moves amidst us and silently watches us and takes action.

I didn’t quite follow what you just said!

What I am trying to explain is that after I fell headlong into depression, recovered and fell into it once again, I believe he saw me struggling and brought me out of it once again. Now that I am in a great space and to make sure that I don’t go back into that hellhole, he sent Messi my way so he can keep me on my toes and keep me entertained. Do you follow me now?

I understand. What you are trying to say is that with Messi’s entry into your life, you have no time left to think of unpleasant things and be lonely because he keeps you busy with his naughtiness and his antics!

You’ve got it right. And I have God to thank for this.

A message for all those struggling with depression is to adopt a stray dog or cat and is actually a, what I’d like to call it, a double benefit because the stray gets a home and you get the entertainment and love.
