Intro to Poetry; Day 3: Friend

Billie Dean the Kat

by Gertie

Billie Dean the Kat is a cat.

A cat that is not only a family member

but my best friend.

Some say cats are only pets or animals but

cats are both family and friends.

That is why my cat, Billie is my

friend.

Everyday Inspiration; Day 3: One-Word Inspiration

Choice

Choice is the word I chose to be my inspiration to write about. Choice is a loaded word. For me choice is the reason why I am here today. I made the choice to be in active recovery. I made the choice to continue living in Seattle where I have an awesome job helping others with their recovery journey and an amazing volunteer job where I help cats get their furrever homes.

To me being able to make my own choices helps me keep hope alive in my own self. It helps me keep the hope alive in myself because helps make the decisions or choices to stay in recovery. Staying in recovery is what is important to me. It’s important to me because I want to help others with their recovery. It’s important to me because I want to be here for my cat, Billie. It’s important to me because I want to make sure other cats get their furrever home. So the choice to stay in recovery is what keeps me alive. That’s why I chose the work choice. Life is nothing but choices.
