THANKFUL THURSDAY ~ and WHY I AM NAMED JUNE


Today is the last day of June ~ the last day of "June in June", my special month, the one I waited eleven months for, and now I must wait another eleven months for it to come again!  Of course, it's special for me because I am "sort of named" for this month, but mine Mommy chose the name because it had much meaning for her as well.  It's not my birthday month (or hers), or my gotcha month, or anything like that.  But it was during the month of June that she made a very big and life changing decision, at the height of a pandemic (2020) to live on her own, no longer "with family", and began to plan for it.  It meant a lot more downsizing (she'd done that once before) and it wasn't an easy thing for someone alone and of a "certain age", but looking back she can now say it was a very good decision.  So she is thankful.  Another reason for the choice of my name is there is a little one in her family, and as a baby and toddler she called him Juney or Juneybug and he was with her a lot, a whole lot.  With moving, she would miss him a lot, a whole lot.  When she adopted me, she said now I will have a little Juneybug with me each and every day.  So, that is how my name came to me, for those reasons, important to mine Mommy.  And now impawtent to me, too.  And I, too, am thankful.  And she made a montage of her favorite Juney photos to celebrate!

  3. June, you have a lovely name and I can see that it was given to you with a lot of thought and care. Just like your mommy used a lot of thought and care to start over a new life. You're both very brave together.
