Magical Monday: Four

Posted on January 30th, 2012 in Magical Monday, Stories


Four years ago, I abandoned my grilled turkey and cheese sandwich to drive with Ben across town in the dark of night.  

Four years ago, I feel to my knees in a strange house as four puppies came prancing toward me. One little white girl climbed in my lap and a little brown boy gnawed on my toe.


Four years ago, I drove home beaming, tears of joy falling on the two squirming bodies in my lap.


Four years ago, you chose us.

Four years ago was one of the happiest days of my life.



Happy Birthday, Bitty and Bear.



Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  We have a new Fabulous Woman of the Pond tomorrow!
