November 5 Boots
We have a vagabond. I named her Boots. Not so original, I know – but I was trying not to get (too) attached. She’s sweet, and skinny, and definitely an independent cuss. Monti has already hissed and spit out her disapproval. But Boots, well she’s a honey badger in a kitten’s fur.
This week so many people have been displaced, and are starting to feel the vagabond sting. It will be a long haul; I hope we are resilient in our attention through the holidays.
Today I am thankful
.. for Boots, even if she strays.
.. for everyone that showed up this weekend and gave so generously to support the American Red Cross Sandy Relief efforts.
.. for violas, pansies, and rose-resistant gloves.
For what are you thankful?
