No poem today. I wanted to share something else that moved me, however, so follow this link to the story of a cat, healed and homed. http://news.bestfriends.org/index.cfm?page=news&mode=entry&entry=48004EB6-ECA0-6229-6919177397D242B6&utm_source=delivra&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=The%20sweetest%20revenge%20is%20happiness%20-%20general&mid=92299098&ml=22588759
When my mom and I visited Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in October 2010, we spent one of our afternoons volunteering with the Special Needs kitties. My job was to put Smokey (the cat in the story) on a leash and take her for a walk. It was a gorgeous fall day, and she seemed to find so much joy out in the sunshine and fresh air. She was so kind and loving, an object lesson in forgiveness. I have thought of her often since then, and when I saw this article today, I wept, overwhelmed with gratitude that she has found a “forever home” in which she can give and receive love. Bless the woman who opened her home to this very special cat.
